TIDAL Connect Launches on BluOS
BluOS now offers you a new way to control music on connected devices directly from the TIDAL app.
TIDAL Connect has just been announced, and BluOS is among a carefully chosen group of launch partners for the new tech.
BluOS users will be notified of a software update from today which enables players from NAD Electronics, Bluesound, DALI Loudspeakers, and Monitor Audio, to access TIDAL Connect.
TIDAL Connect is the only casting technology to feature support for the extended audio formats available through TIDAL HiFi, including Master Quality Audio (MQA) and Dolby Atmos. MQA delivers master quality sound as the artist intended it, and Dolby Atmos provides listeners with breakthrough immersive audio experiences through spatialised, object-based audio.
Andrew Haines, BluOS Product Manager, told StereoNET:
Our goal is to connect customers with the music they love. We are excited to offer BluOS customers the opportunity to be amongst the first in the world to access TIDAL Connect, which gives them a quick-access way to enjoy lossless music streaming.
For the first time ever, BluOS customers who are subscribers to TIDAL's HiFi tier can now enjoy uninterrupted playback of their favourite albums or tracks in their preferred quality on their preferred devices, with the TIDAL app functioning as a controller. Available to TIDAL Premium members as well, users can open the “Now Playing,” screen while playing a song, click on the device selector on the bottom left, and choose the TIDAL Connect-enabled device for playback.
BluOS customers will still require the BluOS Controller app for advanced controls like player grouping and listening preferences. As well, TIDAL will continue work as before, with direct browsing, search, and playlist creation natively inside BluOS Controller.
Lior Tibon, TIDAL COO, commented:
TIDAL consistently looks for opportunities to normalise and elevate the HiFi listening experience, with its chief aims being uncompromised high-fidelity sound and seamless access to entertainment. TIDAL Connect offers HiFi members another route to discovery, making it easier to control music on a preferred device and motivating users to use TIDAL as intended, wherever and whenever.
Additionally, devices from Cambridge Audio, KEF, Lyngdorf, iFi, and Naim also benefit from the new tech.
