Perhaps I am misunderstanding, but I don't see how it is possible to play Tidal via the Node 2i without the Bluesound app, which is built into the Node.
What you are describing may be sending Tidal from the iPad to the Node using bluetooth, which is surely not optimal.
One clarification, the indicator of the file resolution that shows up in Tidal when a song is playing changes depending on the resolution of the original, HiFi, Master, etc.
And here's an article in TechHive that has some information on this.
Here's a reference to this on the Tidal support site. It reads as if Tidal Connect is an alternative to the Bluesound app and it does work that way.
You may well know more than I do about this but the Tidal app on the iPad shows that it is transmitting Tidal Master quality files via Tidal Connect to the Node 2i and the audio quality I hear is clearly far better than anything I've heard via Bluetooth.
You are right and I was wrong. On Tidal it is possible to bypass the Bluesound app.
