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;)

Fantastic! There has been an increasing number of albums added in Dolby Atmos lately and now it is an very important album which is not on the charts at the moment.
I have ordered the box to an quite nice price from WOWHD and have gotten the information that the box is being delivered.
As i prefer to have the music in physical form i think it is just positive that the album is presented in both ways.
I am still irritated that i just have the latest Tom Petty albums "for hire" and not at least as files.
The stereo files i have sound fine but the Dolby Atmos version sounds so much better.
I wish i could download the files as i have understood that some people manage

Thanks for sharing. Listening to the Atmos mix as I type.
I am not a fan of the album, but the mix seems okay, for what I've heard so far.
My Sweet Lord is very nice. Let It Down is another nice mix.
Wah Wah sounds a bit congested and fatiguing.
Take these impressions with a grain of salt, though.

Several Atmos albums Not More Available in TIDAL ?

This morning I wanted to listen Booka Shade in Atmos and found there is not Available.
I went through the Mobile Tidal App and found that there are some more albums from 'My Music' favourites also not available. They can be easily located because they appear "lighted" in 'My Music' list

Following Atmos albums are not available for me. TIDAL App says "The content is no longer available":
I've been able to copy those links from 'My Music' - share - copy link:

https://tidal.com/browse/album/155124342 Heiner Rennenboum Doppelquartet
https://tidal.com/browse/album/150140816 Booka Shade - Dear Future Self
https://tidal.com/browse/album/153406135 B4 The Storm - Internet Money
https://tidal.com/browse/album/150745842 Magnificat - Trondheimsolistene
https://tidal.com/browse/album/149636865 Matt Darey - Wolf

Would anyone of you with TIDAL HI-FI check if they are available for you, to check if it is general worldwide or regional 'business feature'?

They are all gone here in the US. Hopefully you got them backed up...
