RE: MQA doesn't cost me anything

Is this full hi-res as being advertised, or is it a lossy hi-res? I don't really care as it sounds better than CD and I'm listening to digital for the first time in a couple of years now, since I upgraded my vinyl.

Do you need a special MQA DAC or not? I would say not, since I don't have one and can still get 24/96 coming out of the Tidal app, whether full 24/96 or not.

Now if only I could bridge the final 15 feet between this computer (playing a Tidal master playlist through headphones as I type) and my main all tube system. It is the upper limit of USB, and an analog cable would pick up noise over that length, not that my wife would be happy with a cable running across the room like that.

And this hi-res costs less than the price of one LP per month, about a quarter of what I'd spend on LPs per month, plus I get the student discount for Tidal.
