Ho do I listen to TIDAL with this? Thank you! I need to replace my Squeezebox Touch.

I listen to Tidal via Roon.

It is integrated and works flawlessly.

I think you can also do it through JRiver.

I was a little hesitant at first to get it because of the subscription but using it with the microRendu is like cake and ice cream, they go together so nice...glitch free

I don't want another computer to run Roon.

Currently I'm looking for a one-box solution for serving files and Tidal.

Like the Aries, or one of the Aurenders. Built-in Tidal support.

But I hear this microRendu sounds amazing, so I'm curious how I can run Tidal on it.

jesusR might want to weigh in on this, but the microRendu is equipped to be used with Shair/Airplay......ipad/iphone Tidal should be workable.

You don't have to use Roon, although it pairs up great.  I can also use my microRendu with JRiver/Jremote via DLNA.

That's typically it until you get a shipping notice.

My microRendu is being delivered today! :thumb:

I have an Auralic Vega, will I be able to do Native DSD with this DAC (the Vega is on the list) or does the Vega have to have an update to be able to do Native DSD?  Will the microRendu have the latest firmware or will I have to update it?

Thanks,
Ed

Yes, and even if you have to update it takes about 3 minutest from the comfort of a chair.  You don't have to do anything but look pretty.

That presents a major challenge! :lol:

Jason, I believe you sent one or both of your Vega's back for an update, what functionality did that give you?

Thanks,
Ed

Great news!

It will sound very good with the iFi power supply, but you will want to get a better PS to really hear what the microRendu can do.

Enjoy.

DSD256 for the one that got updated.  My newer one already had it.

Recieved my unit, got it running without issue.  Using linn kazoo at the moment, simply because I had tried it with the Aries.  No issue playing redbook, but unable to play DSD files, they won't load at all.  I believe I played DSD files with Kazoo on the Aries.  Any ideas where I may have gone wrong?  I have the microRendu connected to the Vega with the supplied usb hard connector.  Should my DAC be indicating any other rates than these:
Rates: 44100, 48000, 88200, 96000, 176400, 192000, 352800, 384000

Ed,

Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with Kazoo.

I had no problems playing DSD64 with the Vega via the microRendu and Roon.

I think Jason has also been successful with JRiver.

Thanks George, you answered one question for me, apparently there isn't any special setup for the microRendu to enable DSD play.  I have tried it with Direct DSD checked and unchecked, no joy either way.  I will try another player and see if I have any luck.

Thanks,
Ed

My DSD issue was Kazoo.  I loaded Kinsky and it played DSD right off the bat.  Have to use DOP as Direct DSD gives me white noise.  If I understood what Ted mentioned, I believe that may be a limitation of Minimserver.

Good to hear Ed.

How's it sound?
