dCS Mosaic v1.2 Update Adds TIDAL Connect
dCS has updated its Mosaic streaming firmware and control app to v1.2, delivering two new features, including TIDAL Connect.
dCS Mosaic was launched to provide a simple and elegant solution to multi-source streaming. The latest version, v1.2, brings additional transport control and TIDAL Connect.
The UK-based company developed the Mosaic platform in 2019 to “provide a unified control and playback interface that would bring together music from multiple sources”.
Mosaic is made up of two core elements. Firstly, the Mosaic Control app allows you to search for and browse hi-res recordings from various sources, build unified playlists featuring music from multiple libraries, and control settings on your dCS device. This is paired with a processor that offers enhanced streaming functionalities, including the option to use Roon as a media management platform or cast music to a dCS device via Spotify Connect and Apple AirPlay. Both the app and processor run on custom code written by dCS engineers.
The latest update to the Mosaic app and firmware include the addition of TIDAL Connect. This enables dCS owners with a TIDAL account to stream music direct to their dCS device and perform basic operations such as play, skip, pause, and adjust volume from within the TIDAL app.
Naturally, this also means that visitors can share music from their TIDAL app, too, without needing to download the Mosiac app.
In addition to TIDAL Connect, the Mosaic Control app has been updated to provide basic transport controls owners of a Vivaldi Transport, Vivaldi One, Rossini Transport or Rossini Player. You can now use the Mosaic app to play, pause and skip tracks on your transport device, making it easier than ever to manage playback when listening to standard or Super Audio CDs.
dCS says that it has also introduced some minor updates to meet its streaming partners' latest technical and visual requirements and addressed some minor bugs noted on a small number of devices.
