Astell & Kern SP1000 Now Plays MQA


Streams Tidal Masters very well for me. Notes don’t say whether just first unfold, but presume so.

Excellent update…presumably Roon and ability to download Masters to follow.



if you stream Tidal Masters to it with AK Connect or MConnect or other dlna player, it will fully decode and display the blue or green dot along with mastering sample rate. I think the native Tidal app is first unfold only. MQA files downloaded to it are also fully decoded with indication. If using it as a usb dac there is no unfolding at all.
