This was mentioned on the SHD forum, but I would like to draw attention to it here as there is a lot of demand for this.

We would appreciate it if miniDSP was able to integrate Tidal Connect support to the SHD line. Please see tidal.com/connect

Here is the link to apply to be a Tidal connect partner:

docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScMEDJ3...2DqZ-DAaO3g/viewform

They are making it as easy as possible to integrate. Let's hope miniDSP listens to its customers. This would raise the value of the series. Win-win.

Just got an SHD this week. This would be nice. Tidal Master files now play at 48khz 24 bit maximum. Sounds fine but the full hi-res stream would be a good thing.

I don't think Tidal Connect adds any ability to decoded MQA? I may be wrong but I thought it was just about a different control interface.

If that's true then nevermind :) I don't particularly like the Tidal interface with Volumio but it works if you know what you want to hear and if I want the fancy Tidal interface I can stream to the SHD from the Tidal app on my computer or if I want to use my phone or tablet I can use the Tidal app to stream to my system using the Sonos Port I have connected via SPDIF to the SHD.

It’s been over a month since Volumio implemented it but still no word on the SHD series.

+1 for tidal connect. But as I see here: community.volumio.org/t/tidal-masters-first-unfold/46469/4 Volumio does not unfold mqa, this would need a license which we do not have.
If your DAC is not capable of doing the unfolding than you just get HiFi.

Though with capable dac you would get  full mqa richness. Without MQA dac not sure - probably current volumio implementation would get 16/44 stream out of tidal 

So tidal connect would be still desirable/convinient

Plenty of people use Tidal on SHDs and so for them the addition of Tidal Connect would unquestionably be beneficial.

Personally I would choose to avoid Tidal on any hardware due to their use of MQA comproising sound quality, even on hardware capable of full 'unfolds'. Although obviously the available music library is an important consideration too.

+1 I use Volumio with tidal connect .  Moved to use SHD and lost Tidal connect function is bad experience.
