I have read the mountain of topics and posts on this one. No one so far seems to be able to get MQA from Tidal to work on Volumio.
I have an iFi Zen Dac which is MQA certified and works fine with MQA on my Windows PC through the Tidal app. However on my Volumio PC in my music room it is limited to 48KHz/24Bit. I have followed the suggestions I have found in other posts and made sure the audio quality for Tidal is set to: “Hi-Res”, no plugins or other audio resampling enabled, and the volume is 100. Now I have a question around the volume. When it says make sure the volume is 100 I have set the Mixer Type to: “None” as the only other option I get is “Software” and I don’t want to use that! (I did try with “Software” and volume at 100 but that did not work either). In any case setting Mixer Type to None should be the same as volume 100 and allow the MQA to pass through, correct?
What I would like is a definitive YES or NO from the devs at Volumio as to whether or not MQA works with Volumio. And if it does, how do we get it going?!!!
I have paid my money for Volumio Virtuoso, pay monthly for Tidal, and have just purchased a Dac that is MQA certified only to find that it may not even work!
If anyone has a solution please let me know.
Thanks in advance.
