Yep, I have zero interest or use for the MQA stuff on Tidal, only the Atmos stuff, which is the subject of this thread :)
I use a Logitech Media Server to stream my two channel stuff including streaming Tidal and it sounds fine and maxes out at 16/44 FLAC on Tidal.

I guess Tidal has become the redheaded step child now that the golden boy Apple Music is in the family but just noticed there are a few problem links in the 'Available in Dolby Atmos' list. These generate a message 'Failed to connect to server. Check your internet connection or go to offline mode'.

Other album links in the list play fine so the problem appears to be server side.

I submitted a report.

Kacey Musgraves "Same Trailer Different Park" and "Pageant Material"

Migos "Culture III"
FYI, at least they responded and indicated the report was forwarded to the responsible team.

I guess I'd mention that on my laptop setup with a DAC the Tidal windows app software mqa decode at least presents up to 96kHz PCM to the DAC which is good/fine.

If I did care about MQA I guess I'd look for a DAC that has hardware support and unfolds past 96kHz. That's something that I'd expect you'd get for 'free' in a current DAC if the technology has any chance of surviving. It's certainly not something I'd pay a lot extra for.

Not wanting to get into an MQA devolution in this thread but I have been convinced by the argument that it's a solution in search of a problem.

I submitted a ticket to Tidal once about artist metadata, specifically that there are two bands called The Radiators, one Australian and once American. Got a reply from them but nothing ever was resolved.........

Do the downloaded Atmos tracks have that same quirk? Asking for a friend;)
