Tidal Master playback with Prisma is available using:
- AirPlay (with Master file playback resolution at 16/44.1)
- Roon with Chromecast built-in as endpoint (resolution up to 24/96), or directly, following Roon Ready certification (NP5 Prisma and NP5 Prisma MK2 are Roon Ready), and automatic over the air – OTA – update for all other Prisma models to be made available as soon as possible during the first quarter of 2022).
- We are currently working to make Tidal Master file playback available on all Prisma models by free automatic software update in 2022, which will provide Master file playback among other feature and performance enhancements.
- Tidal Master file playback is not available for playback using the Chromecast built-in platform directly. We are exploring options with Google to provide Tidal Master playback with Chromecast built-in, but are uncertain when that might be possible.
- Another option for Tidal Master file playback would be to use a third party UpNP control application such as mconnect or BubbleUpNP, with resolution up to 24/48.
- Note: in addition to Tidal Master file playback, we are exploring options for Qobuz full 24/192 kHz playback, with the hope of being able to provide those additional options in 2022 as well.
