I saw the same in early Tidal app that Tidal decode was no good when linked to my 808. Only MQA pass-through worked. Rendering the 1st unfold did not.

Are you saying that the Tidal app is fixed in this regard now ? I haven't been inclined to re-test.


Rgds,

Dunno and likewise!

Edit: No, it doesn't appear to have been fixed.

A little off topic but this is a new to me DSP8000SE Review.

This quote is interesting.

We measure resolution in terms of noise, jitter, time smear, not just bit-depth and high frequency extension. We also do not believe there is any technical argument to support operating at bit-depths higher than 24-bit, as a correctly dithered 24-bit signal, when correctly converted to analogue, has no quantisation noise and more dynamic range than any recording microphone or studio preamp can capture. Bob [Stuart] has written and published some excellent technical papers on the subject over the years.

“Our ambition in the future is to increase the maximum sampling rate of our SpeakerLink transport. The current Meridian state-of-the-art is 24/96 for DACs. Our front-end processors, like 818v3 and UltraDAC, can handle much higher sampling rates at their inputs, so in terms of file compatibility we handle practically everything available.”

The reviewer name is Jez Ford. This has a familiar ring to it. Perhaps a thinly disguised pen name?
