TIDAL HiFi/HiFi Plus subscribers using BluOS have the option to use:
- The deep integration of TIDAL Music Service in the BluOS Controller app or
- TIDAL Connect from the TIDAL app.
BluOS Controller App
The BluOS Controller App’s deep integration with TIDAL Music Service gives you access to “Masters” content. If you want to stream Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) tracks, the direct TIDAL integration on the BluOS Controller App will display MQA content when it is available.
Starting December 12, 2023, if you prefer to stream the hi-res FLAC of a track, please opt for TIDAL Connect. If tracks in TIDAL are available in both MQA and FLAC, the TIDAL App will offer you the FLAC version by default, and the MQA version will be inaccessible. TIDAL calls this approach “TIDAL Max”.
It is important to note that the perceived "better" quality is subjective, and personal preferences may vary. At BluOS, we consistently advocate the philosophy of "Let your ears decide". Our aim is to provide a wide range of quality playback choices to give you the most flexibility in your listening experience.
