MQA streaming?

I am wanting to "stream" if that's the correct word, music from "Tidal Masters" network streaming service at MQA level. At the moment I have a Cambridge Audio CXA60 which I am currently streaming music to off an android via bluetooth aptX CODEC. In order to get MQA sound bluetooth simply will not cut the muster. Tidal masters App requires a "desktop" to work the full app and play MQA. Obviously not parking my iMac next to my hi-fi to link up. Do I require a network streaming DAC such as Oppp Sonata or Cambridge Audio CXN (2 that i have in mind) in order to play MQA quality? I won't sign up to Tidal until I find a way of getting the MQA as it's meant to be listened to.
Cambridge Audio informed me that MQA over bluetooth will provide 16/44.1kHz only!

So wired connection is out of bounds. So I am looking for a network player that has Tidal Integration I believe? Do either CXN or Oppo Sonata fit into this mould? How do other audiophiles play Tidal or Qobuz MQA files through their speakers. Obviously it's streamed music for convenience so i want it to be convenient to play that music!
