Was crap yesterday,  good for a while this morning and then crap again .. getting really annoyed ..  II attached to various wireless points and eventually rebooted most of my network this morning which improved things for a short time ....  maybe coincidence reading this ..

 

This statement ???  'I'd imagine the vast majority would be using Tidal through another app since Tidal itself doesn't integrate properly with renderers'

I am using the the Tidal app off a high end Laptop onto a Accuphase DC37 using the native Accuphase USB driver with a high end audio USB cable  ...  sound quality I find is very good ... what am I missing, is this lower quality  ???

Hey Rosco,

With ur setup you aren't troubled by renderers at all 🙂

It's those of us running our systems from phones or notepads that have the additional challenge with Tidal.

Cheers!

Get your CDs and vinyl out.

I had a response from tidal.  They tried to isolate the issue with my app, etc.    I pointed them to this link.  I informed help desk that a US routing VPN fixes the issue.  Lets see w

Two years of faultless streaming Tidal; a week ago I installed  a NUC and Roon Rock and now everything falls apart! The last two days have been continual drop outs streaming via  Roon and also if I use only Lightning DS. I was beginning to think I had system issues but it appears maybe not. Glad I noticed this thread!

 Hope it gets sorted soon.

Mine was doing this last night. I thought it was Roon, but it buffered through the Tidal app as well. Spotify played the same playlist fine. 
 

It happens maybe once every month or two I would say. Assume it is the Tidal servers.

Yeah more of the same to report here. I’ve got heaps of bandwidth (2x NBN links) and Tidal kept cropping out on Roon.

 

tracks would start then skip after a few seconds.
 

I haven’t done any serious analysis but I am curious as to the root cause. I might run tcpdump on my roon server next time it happens and see whats going on.

 

this is when having many terabytes of my own music comes back into its own.

My Tidal is doing 10 seconds of play then 2 minutes of buffering!!@! reloaded the ap. no different. All my other streaming- Netflix etc is fine. 46MB speed. Doing it since yesterday.  Anyone know if it's related to the big storms in Texas?

I’m using nord VPN.  Using tidal through Roon. No issues at all 

Yep a Us VPN fixes the issues. 

Something is clearly wrong with their Australian server..

Im not having any of the issues being reported here, but I will say that Tidal does from time to time drop out every few weeks or so, unlike Qobuz, which has been rock-solid since signing up.

I've been also having issues since Friday. I have messaged them, no response as yet. 

Tidal issues all weekend here as well. Roon is saying the feed is slow.

I had a 25 hour NBN outage the other month. I was very happy that I didn't need to rely on streaming to keep myself entertained.

Can anyone offer an opinion on Qobuz vs Tidal?

I switched fron spotify to tidal for lossless playback, but if u cant play their music then its kind of pointless!

Lets put it this way, I wont be renewing my Tidal subscription at home. And that has nothing to do with "issues". Thats merely from a sonic perspective.

Qobuz and Tidal had the same SQ in my system when I had Qobuz for the trial period, both played via Roon.

I find the sonic perspective of Tidal excellent, it equals my local redbook playback.

Dont get me wrong, it is excellent. But Qobuz exceeds it in my opinion,hence why I am prepared to pay the premium for Qobuz and not for Tidal. And not just from my own system, those differences where shared with others on their systems too.

I’ve been getting lots of dropouts in the past 30 mins. Especially when I queue up

high bitrate MQA content that I’ve not played before.


I had a look and was getting lots of resets from Tidal servers. I fired up my VPN to Las Vegas and it’s been faultless.

 

The local Tidal CDN seems over way subscribed and it’s obviously not scaling the platform as demand rises hence the resets.

 

pretty ordinary really. I can stream from the USA, 200+ msec away and it’s flawless.

would there be a public-spirited individual who could point the tech illiterate to an idiots guide to setting up a VPN for usa? ☺️☺️☺️

Do any StereoNET users subscribe to a family Qobuz account with multiple people in different households. I am considering the family edition, but need to understand if its IP/location checked? Its a bit pricey, so considering options to reduce outlay!

 

Using a VPN I can easily sign up for an account and try I guess. Just wondering if any users are doing this?

Hi, it really depends on your setup.

 

Are you using a PC for music? or a streamer? Roon? etc

I guess I was asking for everyone really, but thanks for pointing out its not quite that simple (nothing in IT ever is, I realise)

I use a tablet to operate a third party app to control the Tidal selections for a (rune audio) headless streamer ☺️
