Or will I need a MC200 too?

Best!

If you have a PC you can install the Tidal app on and that has an audio output that can connect to the 218 then yes.

The 218 does not have a USB input unfortunately, quite a significant omission imho.
The MC200 would also enable Tidal streaming plus Sooloos.


Never pass up a good chance to shut up!

Alternatively, you could purchase a Roon sub and use an existing PC as core/store and stream Tidal (inc. MQA) over your network. Either this or MC200/Sooloos will sound very significantly better than using the analogue or digital output of a PC.
