Afraid I can’t offer any more, I was only told it works with AirPlay 2.

My only concerns were Roon and Spotify compatibility, as we don’t use AirPlay in our home (although it would allow visitors to).

MQA decoding is a bonus as my M6 will only partly render MQA, and their placement and environment aren’t conducive to critical listening.

The obsolete 210 streamer datasheet hosted on Duncan's Meridian Info mentions Apple AirPlay but the latest 210 streamer at a glance release hosted by Meridian Audio does not.

I don’t believe the 210 has Airplay or Airplay2 support, you may want to check with a knowledgeable dealer before purchasing.

Can someone clarify whether there is a DAC inside the 210 streamer ? I am under the impression there isn’t one ? Or is the built in MQA decoder a DAC ?
Thanks

No DAC exists in the 210. Meridian suggest connecting the 210 digital out to an external DAC.

Thanks. So to achieve full fat MQA, will Tidal > 210 > SE DSPs work?

I guess this is really for the SE speaker guys who want to keep it all Meridian?

I can't see what else this offers over a Raspberry Pi if you are a Roon user?

I preferred the sound of the Pi over my MS600, but maybe the 210 will be cleaner than the MS600?


No Darling, I've had it months!

Thanks although I don’t need AirPlay (rather I was only responding to another HHer asking it it was included).

Thank you! I meant to say my M6 will play unfolded MQA (from the 210) up to 24/96 but not beyond. Think I have that right?

I can confirm that, contrary to the original intentions, the 210 does not have Airplay or Airplay 2.
