MQA Newbie Question

My interest in MQA is to play through Tidal only. My understanding is that Tidal MQA is almost all 24/96. If this is wrong please correct me.

Also, my understanding is that any vanilla 24/96 capable DAC will be able to play these files without any sort of MQA certification as long as the software (Tidal in this case) is able to unpack the files. Only 24/192 MQA requires a special MQA certified DAC.

Am I understanding this correctly? In the context of Tidal as it stands today, is there any reason to get a MQA DAC outside of the rare file that may be encoded for 24/192?
