TIDAL on Bryston


#1

Just FYI: The latest iteration of Manic Moose has a TIDAL app. Seamless operation so far…


#2

Same experience here, jah, hasn’t missed a beat through the and sound quality seems to be, well…just what DS makes redbook sound like, wonderful!! Love the perceived synergy that my BDP-2 and DS have together, especially with the Belken Gold; remarkable value (thanks, Ted, for the “steer” on this cable).


#3

I did not know this, even though I just upgraded the firmware in my BDP-2. I need to pay more attention to Moose.

Thanks!


#4

Have you guys added the new Bryston soundcard for the bdp-2?

If you only use USB it doesn’t affect anything reportedly, but for AES its a nice improvement and not too much money. Plus you can pass DSD64 via AES now.


#5

Not yet I, soliver…just too into usb output into directstream from both “sticks” and tidal. In this path, the new card is not active, if i understand correctly, and I am too sold on the DS to spend the money/time on the new card to perhaps be disappointed it was redundant quality, perhaps at the very best. I sure could be wrong…


#6

Soliver, have you done so? I have not.


#7

Yes, I did it soon after a friend upgraded to it as well as I prefer using the AES/EBU connection which is the connection point affected by it.

It gives slightly improved sonics, a bit blacker and a bit more detail, but the real kicker is passing of DSD via AES now. That alone is worth the upgrade price. So now I only need to switch to USB for double rate dSD, which I own almost none of.

Excellent! Quite exciting as the Brystons already work brilliantly.

Thanks
