Looking To Upgrade My Streaming Components
« on: 11 Jul 2018, 05:48 pm »
What are you guys using / or recommending to stream Tidal ..??

I'm using my  Apple IPAD  to wirelessly control the "Apple TV4"--(streamer) ...
From there I use a AQ Cinnamon HDMI cable into the OPPO 205 ...

There is nothing wrong with my set up , but I do believe there are better streamers out there..

I really have no idea what I'm doing in the computer arena (age)..
The only idea I can think of, that would be a step up would be an AURENDER “X 100..
Looking to get into a very nice above average streaming system..
Suggestions please..!!!

I keep hearing recommendations for Roon, but it seems overpriced to me at half the price of the Tidal subscription itself.

The Bluesound Node is on sale at audioadvisor.com and is a great streamer. Sounds great in my rig and will do the full unfold of MQA files from Tidal.

Have used Audirvana+/Tidal (not the Tidal app) for some time. Sounds great and has been bug-free.

I'm using an iPod touch with a Tascam  CD-200iL CDP/transport with a 30 pin and Lightning iPod dock built in. It allows the use of an external DAC, I'm using a modded MHDT Labs Havana, and performs way above its price. You can use Spotify, Tidal and internet radio. It is also and excellent transport.
