Hi Everyone,

Tidal Master is now avaliable in Andriod version if you Hi-Fi subscriber. It is able to decode up to 88.2/96kHz.

https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/ ... fi-premium-ces-2019

I've tried on Fiio X5III and it sound pretty good but I'm not sure the internal DACs will receive the actual decoded sampling rate or it will SRC (Sample Rate Conversion) to 48kHz? Is there any way to verify that?

I just verified that Fiio X5III music player output 96kHz (decoded MQA) from SPDIF coaxial output to the Topping DX3Pro DAC + headphones amp. The display shows 96K PCM which is decoding.

Do you need to update the Tidal app on the X5iii player to see the MQAs? I don't see them on there.

You need to install from Google Play, the latest version is 1.2xxx. You need to select 'Master' under 'Quality'. The Fiio Market has Tidal app but this is a old version.

Fiio: I installed tidal version 2.11.1 using your link above on my m6, but it seems to cause some problems when my headphone is connected with bluetooth (tidal pauses after each song in a playlist). The problem wasn't there with the orginal version that came loaded on the m6 when I received it.  Is there anyway to reinstall the original version? where can it be downloaded? Thanks.

Dear friend,

You could do a factory restore and the Tidal will return to original version.

Any other solution? I have the same problem with 2.11.3 on Fiio M9. Is the app the problem or are the players?

The original version of the Tidal app doesn's support MQA.

Dear friend,

Please update the M9 to the latest firmware now for check.
Then do a factory restore first before using the Tidal.

Best regards

Has anyone tested PURE MUSIC MODE vs. ANDROID MODE with Tidal? Is there much of a difference?
