Does Hidizs S9 Pro support MQA?
Inside the S9 PRO, there’s an ESS9038Q2M DAC chip that does PCM up to 32bit/768kHz, and DSD up to 512, but no MQA. Correspondingly, a logo indicator light on the outside panel shows the sample rate and file type employing six different colors: Yellow: DSD64/128. Purple: DSD256/512.
Is hi-res better than MQA?
The key difference between the two is that the Hi-Fi quality delivers tunes without any compression at CD-quality, 44.1kHz, and MQA offers audio representative of the original source. Compared to Hi-Fi quality, you can stream TIDAL Masters titles at up to 192kHz.
Is TIDAL HiFi better than MQA?
HiFi audio is a superior sound but is still limited in its resolution—44.1 kHz /16 bit. TIDAL has partnered with MQA to deliver something substantially better: an authenticated and unbroken version (typically 96 kHz / 24 bit) with the highest possible resolution—as flawless as it sounded in the mastering suite.
