    I'm not sure. I've been out at CES all week, so haven't really heard anything about MQA playback on the embedded vs Tidal Android app or had a much of a chance to listen myself. I will try and get some information on if there are any differences.

    Thanks Jason,

    The tease is seeing others in the world already open for purchase/order (Australia & UK) and we have to wait. Arg

    So, when you say the end of the month, does that actually mean it will actually be available here? OR just to get on a 2 week waiting list?
     
  3. JasonNYC
    We will start pre-orders next week and it will be available for purchase by the end of the month or will ship before the end of the month if you pre-ordered. I have been out of the office this week, so I should have a more concrete date on Monday for US/Canada market.

    it would appear there is upsampling with the Android version. When using the SP1000 with optical to Hugo2 it looks like hifi is maybe 48k. MQA is unfolded to 88 or 96. The stock app is 44.1 for hifi and unfold to 88 or 96. It is still not confirmed by AK that there is a full decode on either the stock or apk app but there is an unfold. If Tidal is streamed with AK connect the MQA is confirmed as decoded by the blue or green dot. PLEASE correct me if I am mistaken.

    My hope is that when it has Roon there will be full decode. Time will tell.

    I am already using Qobuz via open app. It has bugs. The search field is difficult as typing in it does not show what is being typed. Without being able to search the app is not much use.
    Roon was said to be coming before Christmas. Glad to hear it is still on the way.

    Is there any way to downgrade back to FW 1.6?

    1.7 isn’t auto-powering off and I can’t install any (zero) apps using services anymore. Now I can’t even install apps I had been able to install on 1.6. This is unacceptable.

    I’m sorry, I didn’t notice you come to my house and install apps on my player or wait for it to auto shutoff. So I’m not really sure how you can (confirm) that 1.17 is working perfectly fine. If I’m mistaken please let me know.

    You can confirm all you like but I know mine is not auto shutting-off and I can no longer install apps.

    My statement has zero reference to my logic as process of thinking, it showed sarcasm. But your statement clearly shows the logic that it works for you so I must work for everyone. Which that can never be said with most electronic devices. Moreover, you have attempted to install an app on 1.17 so how do you know if it’s confirmed working. Oh my God, people on this form or just too much.

    Why are you trying to create an issue? Are you really so insecure that you have to try to throw jabs at me. Oh Jesus Christ.

    You do realize that I’m a customer just like you. I am on a forum, on the correct post asking for advice related to the topic of this post. Why do you feel the need to harass me when bugs are a fairly common issue with firmwares. Don’t worry, I’m not insulted I’m just completely speechless towards your behavior. It’s so comical.

    Anyways I found a copy of FW 1.13. I’ll just use that until I find FW 1.16.
