Sure, it’s a damn shame because it’s only streaming. I have Apple TV 4K, don’t know squat about Tidal. The album has a nice smooth, dare I say… analog sound to it. None of that crispy crap often associated with streaming (mastering on some stuff probably has more to do with that than the streaming compression.)
But overall I love the compositions and lyrics on the album; and the mix. However, I can only do 5.1 so far.
Ah so only on Apple.
Jpup you really gotta go Atmos. I mean, you obviously are a surround fan and only you can say if the idea of a more "immersive" format would suit you, but for me even the streaming downloads take on a much more enveloping presence (when done well!). Of course some of the BD's in Atmos are done quite well, some not so much but it is what it is. Overall....well I love it. I had to stretch my budget out to by a new AVR but it can be done on the cheap with two used AVR's. But we've talked about that so...I know these things aren't always easy to do, location, set up, etc can be challenging, for sure.
I used to have a great audio set up in the living room, spacious, speakers spread out pretty well and an optimal listening position. I moved all the audio gear into a smaller bedroom, my pc room, and it's a really challenging setup. But if not ideal, it works thanks to a great speaker setup program (Dirac).
