MOON Streamers Get TIDAL Connect Update
MOON MiND2 components' latest firmware update adds TIDAL Connect streaming option from ACE to 780D v2.
TIDAL Connect joins the raft of streaming options available to MOON music streamer owners while enabling them to send music to their MOON component directly from the TIDAL application.
The Canadian high-end hi-fi brand has added TIDAL Connect via a firmware update to its MiND2-equipped streamers. This means that, instead of having to go via the MOON MiND Controller app or Roon, for instance, you can now simply open the TIDAL app, choose a track to play and then click 'available devices' to select your MOON system. The music will then stream straight from the cloud – in lossless high-fidelity audio quality.
Naturally, all new MOON streaming products will feature Tidal Connect in their proprietary MiND2 module (MOON Intelligent Network Device), whereas existing MOON owners can get it via a simple firmware update. Great news if you own a MOON ACE, MiND 2 network player, 280D (above), 390, 680D (below), or 780D v2.
Etienne Gautier, MOON's export sales manager, told StereoNET:
TIDAL Connect is what our customers have been asking us for. I am sure they will be pleased to now be able to instantly connect to the extensive Tidal music library and play their selected music in a high-quality format.
This news certainly falls in line with MOON's maxim: Defy Obsolescence.
