AFAIK Audirvana 3.0 with MQA decoding is not released yet. Do you mean Tidal MQA with Audirvana sounds better than Tidal MQA alone?

 

He is the order.

 

1.   Worst - Tidal application normal ie 44.1/16 source

2.   Audirvana playing 44.1/16 ripped from CD

3.   Best - Via the Tidal App - MQA.

 

Soon everything will be able to be done in Audirvana - but not until release 3.

 

I was going to get a MAC and Audirvana 3 but decided on the Bridge 2 for my Direct Stream instead.   Borrrowed a MAC for this listening session with the Konverter. I likely eventually will run it from Roon or initially you can do it from an android phone which is supposed to sound great:

Soon the Bridge 2 will do MQA decoding.

 

Thanks

Bill, 

did you compare

Tidal MQA with Audirvana vs. Tidal MQA alone

and

Tidal with Audirvana vs. Tidal alone?

Thanks

The version of Audirvana on the Mac did not have Tidal integration.  It was 1. something or another.

 

The owner of the MAC is waiting for Audirvana 3.

 

They are  being slack.   They said it would be out Feb 1.   Then on Feb 1 said:

Audirvana Plus version 3 is now in the Release Candidate stage.
Official public release is scheduled in about two weeks.
Get ready for the MQA sound experience!

 

Well its nearly March.

 

Hopeless - but typical.   You over promise, get people interested then fart arse around.

 

Thanks

Bill

The power button is a big step forward. You should do that too on new DAC.

Might be a bit early, but would a thread describing what power amps people are using (or plan to use) with the Konverter be useful?

I know matching speakers will have a lot to do with it. However there is a lot of room for discussion about SS vs. tube, and discussing merits of Sanders vs Bryston vs Prima Luna etc. with the sound signature of the Konverter.

I for one would be interested to know more.

Feel free to start a new thread. My first pairing will be with a Naksa 70 power amp.

Perhaps @Gieseler Audio...can tweak the DAC/PRE to maximise impedance match with your Naska...

Just popped back in here at random and reminded how mint this looks. Can't wait to get it in with the rest of my gear...also means I'll get to power up the Naksa 70 for the first time, too.
