Ever since the contemporaneous Redcloud and Bridge II v3.4.5 updates, TIDAL MQA streams that used to appear on the DS display as 24/192 are showing as 16/192 (example: Neil Young, Hitchhiker). By contrast, TIDAL MQA 24/88.2 and 24/96 streams still show as 24/88.2 and 24/96 (example: Gov’t Mule, Revolution Come…Revolution Go (Deluxe Edition)).
It could be my imagination, but TIDAL MQA streams that used to display as 24/192 and that now appear as 16/192 seem to have taken a sound quality hit (example, Grateful Dead, Cornell 5/8/77 (Live) used to sound punchy and dynamic but now seems comparatively flat and uninvolving). Is it possible that the MQA ‘unfold’ is no longer working correctly on these streams? And if so, is there a fix in the works?
Thanks, and happy New Year to all.
