 I have a Sonos Connect device that's connected vie digital connection to my home hifi Dac's. I want to enjoy the highest available Hi-Res streaming Audio available , In Tidal , there is a HIFI stream account and Premium account. the HIFI is about $26 a month that 2.5 more expensive then the premium billed. Is the Sonos Connect device can accept / deliver the 1411Kbps that in the HIFI expensive account ? I want to choose the right Tidal account but its depend on the Sonos Connect capabilities. Thanks

Yes, the Connect can handle the lossless (CD quality) encoded streams in Tidal ‘HiFi’.

Hi again . I'm confuse , I have both Sonos iOS App AND Tidal iOS App , Both can stream to my Sones Connect device and then to my HIFI Home Audio DAC.

What App to use ? The Sonos OR Tidal ??

And where to save downloaded and playlist in what App ?

 Thanks

Hi again.

On iOS iPhone  … 

1.Is the Tidal iOS App can deliver Master quality on HIFI account ?

  1. If so , When using Sonos iOS App on the same iPhone , will the same audio quality remains ?

If you’re talking about MQA then Sonos doesn’t support it. And if it has any sense whatsoever it never will.

On a Mac , when using Tidal macOS App , Can Tidal deliver MQA ? if so , Can I connect a Mac to my DAC using only Tidal App to hear MQA ?

Possibly. I’ve no idea. That has nothing to do with Sonos.

Why not ask these questions on the Tidal forum, they are not Sonos issues
