Sonic Studio have released the free Amarra Play for iOS. Presently v1.5, the forthcoming v1.6 will enable MQA decoding/passthrough up to 96kHz.

If you don’t already own Amarra Luxe (Mac/PC), Amarra Play will work with iTunes files on your iPhone.

Hi

That sounds interesting. It also suggests Tidal support.

Can you steam Tidal MQA to Amanda without any outlay or do you need some other element e.g. a server?

Cheers
Tom

If you own Amarra Luxe4 you can stream Tidal from your host Mac/PC to Amarra Play.

Thanks for that - Is that a licensing requirement or do you need to have a connection from your iPhone to the server when using Ammara play?

Mostly, I use Amarra Play on my iPhoneSE in listening to content on my iPhone (without any connection to another source)

When I want to hear a larger music library selection I utilise Amarra Play in connecting to my copy of Amarra Luxe4 on my Mac Mini.

FWIW, you can also add Dirac (room correction) software as an upgrade to Amarra Luxe4

I think I get it. You can listen to Tidal with MQA when you are in the same location as your server but only local content when away from the server. Seems that there should be the ability to use Tidal when away from the server if you have a paid server licence.

Cheers

There’s nothing to stop anyone using Tidal iOS away from home.

Yes - I know you couldn't get MQA on the phone with Tidal at one point. Has that changed?
