I read over the weekend, that Rhapsody International/Napster, are to start utilising MQA as one of their deliverable services.

I for one have been waiting sometime for this.

I have a linked account via Sooloos, that I have effectively stopped using for critical listening.

I do use it on my various sonos speakers around the house though, as I prefer the content.

Once there is enough MQA content, I will probably be dropping Tidal and start to use Napster also for critical listening.

I don't like the album manipulation used by Tidal....i.e. Jay-Z/Beyoncé/Drake/Kanye etc always being at the top of the new album/Track lists.

Finally Tidal looks like its starting to get some competition.

Anyone else feel the same?


Music Room: 818v3, DSP8000SE (SpeakerLink cables), iPad2 (Core Control).
Office: Stax SRS2020 via 818
Lounge: MC200, DSP5200SL.
Sonos Bridge + S5's around the house pointing to Sooloos library.
Garage: analogue System - Why compromise on sound when cleaning the car smile
Wish List: Room Correction with 818.

I never look at the Tidal front page for very long as I’m too busy with my music in Roon. We need to understand that ‘Young People’ go for all that stuff and it’s a big market for Tidal and easy to avoid.


No 18 in the Hall of fame smile I have simple tastes; I am content to settle for the best:
GIK monster bass panels, rear wall. QNAP TVS 471i3. Roon into DSP5200SE via 218 zone... Explorer 2. Bluesound Pulse 2, Mini & Flex. 596v1, 518, Foxsat HD, Sony BDP, Pioneer 5090, 2 Chromecast's for LRB videos. F80

It annoyed me briefly when I first signed up, but now using Roon I never notice it and just enjoy a shedload of great music, much of it being re-released in MQA. Never been a better time to be a music lover, long may it last.
