Anyone messed around with the Mconnect app for Tidal ?

Just found it for IOS ....

Looking at MQA’s website , Mconnect is a “MQA partner”.

It has Tidal and Quobuz built in to it ...
From what I can see , using it last couple days , it it will send MQA files over UPnP to your player at a minimum 24 bit , 48khz/44.1khz ..... better than the native 16 bit , 44.1khz that is native to my players integrated Tidal app - even when playing a MQA file .... my player is not MQA compatible - yet .....

Dunno how many unfolds the app is doing - if any at all - but the bitrate and sampling is definitely higher - and noticeably improved to my ears ....

Anyone ?

    Yes I do this very thing. I think that Mconnect unpacks the MQA file and sends a 24bit PCM version to the network streamer.

    Jeremy ,
    I’ve been using the free version ....
    Any functionality differences between it and the paid version ?

    What streamer are you using ?
    I just ordered a Cambridge 851n....

    The Tidal integration is better than what my streamer has ....
    Do you have any tips for me ?

    The easiest thing is to do search for your music in the tidal app rather than in Mconnect. Add them to a playlist then locate that playlist in Mconnect. Way easier than to search music in Mconnect.

    I’m also using the lite version.
