Hi Guys, My profile details my setup so wont go into this.
I'm using my Node 2 with Tidal to evaluate MQA and getting some unexplained results.
I understand that I need to select a Tidal Master as a favourite and then play this from the BluSound iOS app. When I do this I hear very little difference between MQA tracks and their CD equivalents. I wasn't expecting too much as this will be subtle but I really can't discern a difference at all.
However when I play the same track from my NAS store of ripped CD FLAC files (dbpoweramp) I'm perceiving a better sound than with the Blusound Node 2 DAC playing CD quality. The MQA files show the correct icon and the blue dot when playing.
How does the BlueSound DAC perform against the Benchmark USB1 DAC ??
I'd like to know if it some improvement would be made by using an external MQA DAC . . if this is likely what level/model/product would give me better fidelity.
