96 kHz MQA FLAC on Tidal streams as 44,1 kHz AAC

When playing Pat Metheny’s Travels, the samplerate is lowered in Roon.
What’s goin on?

96 KHz on my system with full MQA unfold.

Yes, I just found out, after a listening trial I took a subscription on normal sound quality…
Actually normal to me is high res, but with Tidal that is low res…

Case closed, sorry to have bothered you…

Really? Some Tidal albums in 352

It means that many artists compress 44.1khz in MQA, even though it’s not ‘Master Authenticated’. Same happened to me when I listened to RÜFÜS Du Sol ‘Live from Joshua Tree’, which is claimed as MQA, yet only 44,1khz. All 96khz is MQA, not every MQA is 96. It’s only capable container, not a quality guarantee, unfortunately

Not all 44 MQA is authenticated, not all 96 and higher RES MQA is authenticated; Resolution and Authentication are separate issues

Just don’t apply the second unfold.
