Long rant here…
I bought a new Google TV Chromecast 4K to test if Amazon Music or Tidal could stream 360RA as posted on Marantz Cinema Series picture I attached.
The only surround format possible is Atmos in Tidal, just like Apple TV.
Tidal app shows 360 songs and albums, which is different from Apple Tv app, but it gets an error, as well when trying to play MQA songs.
In Amazon Music app is no different. There’s no 360/Atmos available.
You can only see at which sample rate that song is streamed and it doesn’t go over 16/48 Opus.
I think this 360RA/MPEG-H is frustrating and it looks like smokeware To me…
I’m not saying that it’s not good but th only MPEG-H support is for professional and it’s available in binaural mix for consumer which is completely nonsense to me if there’s hardware available to decode it properly.
Ps.: Fire Stick 4K is “another” capable system that should do the job but I’m VERY sure it won’tView attachment 87957
