I have just bought a Soundbar and connected it to Windows 10 pc. How to enable the loudness equalization on pc? Can anyone guide me please.
I am a new user to Tidal and want to know if you can search for and then stream music of specific quality via the phone App or via any other control device.
For example only music of "HiFi" or "High" quality. I have an account that allows me to stream MQA etc.
I understand you can select an upper limit for streaming via Wifi or Cellular and search for only MQA quality music but could you search for only CD quality music (HiFi) or 320kbps (High) and then stream it only at this quality.
On some playlists that have been automatically created by Tidal the music quality has been from MQA all the way down to Normal which is thin sounding and I would prefer to be able to filter it out automatically or set a lower cut off level for the quality.
I believe Tidal will also down-sample music to your upper limit that you have set when streaming. i.e. streaming MQA or HiFi quality with streaming quality set to "High" would down sample it to compressed 320kbps MP3 when wanting to save data and/or using inferior ear-buds etc.
Thanks in advance,
Just received this offer when checking my facebook today. On my phone it says Tidal HiFi $4 for 3 months, so my understanding is that instead of paying $72 you only pay $4. Probably for those who want to try out Tidal. T&Cs apply as usual so do check them.

Some of you may remember my journey into buying a 2 channel system. I'm very happy with my purchase, however, I'm just wondering if any of you have any experience in using cheap USB DACs.
As part of my Primare NP5 streamer purchase I was gifted a free three-month trial for Tidal Hi-Fi (thanks @gwurbfor bringing this to my attention). When streaming via Chromecast and Apple Airplay through the NP5 I am unable to stream Master quality (this isn't a bad thing as Hi-Fi quality is still sounding good and is better than the quality through Spotify). However, should I want to listen to Master quality albums on my MacBook through my Audiolab 6000a, what is the best way of doing this without paying too much.
I was going to buy a 3.5mm to Toslink cable but then found out that my version of Mac no longer has analog/optical audio out through the headphone port (good ol' Apple). And I don't think my Galaxy Note 9 can do this through its headphone port. I have been looking online and it looks like I could potentially run a USB - S/PDIF from my Mac to the amp. I'm assuming I can pass audio from my Mac to the amp this way. If so, I've found the following device and was wondering if anyone here has used it before and if so will it achieve wha ti want it to? Or are there other cheap alternatives out there?
Signstek HIFI USB to Coaxial S/PDIF Converter Convert Digital to Analogue Signal Mini USB DAC PCM
If I were to use this one would the DAC in my amp be used for the audio and not the DAC in the device?
The other alternative is to get a jack to RCA cable and plug my Note 9 to the amp that way. I'm guessing this would affect the quality of the music, or am I wrong here?
I am in the process of updating my music collection and wish to get MS File Explorer to display a series of columns for every music title I have on file.
Date Of Release
(I also wish to include whether a file is an MP3 or Flac file apart from the bit rate column which I assume is only applicable to MP3s)
I know how to add columns for each album singularly but I don't have the time to do this manually for many thousands of files.
Does any techie know how to get Microsoft to globally display all these details for each album title automatically.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
