I was just using Arc on my way to work when I stopped I thought I’d add an album to my library via the Arc app. I did so without checking what versions were available. I then did and found I’d added it as AAC 22khz. Not noticed this before.
I noticed before listening to it, so can’t say if I heard a difference. In my Works vehicle it’d be hard to say anyway.
Is this something new Tidal is spitting out for those using the Arc app or is this more common?
Hi, @Menzies, thank you for you report. Could you, please, how did you discover that album before adding it to library (track suggested by Roon Radio, other album or artist recommendation widgets)? From which screen did you add it to your library?
Tidal still has plenty of albums in AAC, unfortunately.
I realize it could/should be 44Khz; but would still be lossy.
FYI There are 16 (!) versions of this album on Qobuz ranging from 16/44 FLAC to 24/96
