MQA from Tidal is not going to work
Any joy @Matt Bartlett ? It's been on its update for over 3 hours now.
For those of you who had to wait awhile for the update, has it now finished and how long did you wait. Mine has been over an hour now and Poly is quite warm and making cycling soft whining sound. I'm afraid to restart the process for fear of bricking the Poly.
Makes my 90 minutes seem short! Is your poly heating up as well?
So why I would use a DNLA server to stream Tidal if I can airplay audio at 44.1kHz?
mconnect player's native Tidal integration can stream MQA to Poly, but always downsamples in half (a 96kHz track plays at 48.0kHz). Btw, playing Tidal from Poly's DNLA server also gets me only 44 on mconnect as well
I'm on two hours now
Yep it heated up! Took it out of its case and pointed a fan at it just to be on the super-safe side. Calmed down after a couple of hours.
Poly doesn't support native MQA and afaik never will.
Also removed mine from the case, good idea re fan!
Oh, that's a bummer. Having to resort back to plugging my mojo with a cable to listen to 96kHz audio on Tidal is annoying
All the Polys show as still downloading from the server. However this is a bit odd as unless you are on dial up or using mobile data the download shouldn't take this long.
We are still investigating.
Ok - its connected to a healthy 50Mbps connection which I'm using without problem at same time so no problem on that front here.
According to my router, my Poly pulled 190MB from your server then stalled. It is still just cycling through colors now.
At the moment Tidal only allow you to listen to Master (MQA) content through their own app locally. However you can stream Tidal Masters (including MQA) via Roon to Poly.
We live in hope that with the increase of other streaming services like Qobuz that Tidal may change their minds and allow streaming of Master content through other methods.
There is no reason why Poly couldn't support Master playback when it becomes available.
One thing is noticeable, and that is, it's quicker to respond and more reliable.
Had I been doing what I'm doing with the new software, on old poly and gofigure, there would of been problems, connection problems and little niggles etc, but it seems to go from closing an app to reconnecting and playing from sd card, qobuz or tidal very quickly.
So far so good.
