Hi guys, I recently set up Tidal Hi Fi running through a 2Qute DAC yesterday. Sounded amazing and I stayed up into the wee hours revisiting all my music.

So fast forward to this morning, I wake up like a kid on Christmas ready to listen some more and...I can only get sound output on the lap top. It won't output to my DAC.

Checked all my settings on the computer and Tidal and nothing has changed. Output is set to the 2Qute DAC. I also switched output to the computer then back to the DAC. Interestingly enough, when I use Google Play music, it outputs just fine to the stereo. I also closed out Google Play and tried Tidal again with no luck.

Any ideas?

Weird, I just switched to another song and it worked. Disregard! :D

I did that and tried out the same song and it still wouldn't output sound to the amp. Switched the song and life is good. Thanks man!

Oh I can entirely relate. I am not tech saavy at all. Drives me bonkers. I haven't had one phone, computer etc that didn't have silly glitches that make me pull my hair out. But wow, really enjoying the bump up in sound quality.

Considering the future of humanity most likely resides in space, it's a disturbing thought to contemplate on how technology consistently fails us on earth.

Make sure you use the Tidal desktop app rather than the browser streamer. It sounds much better, as it will recognize your DAC drivers. At least the Windows 10/Chrome this was my experience. I tested it on a Hegel HD12 and Bryston BDA3/BUC-1 to make sure. Sounded pretty flat using the browser to stream.

What comforts me is the certainty that things will improve....if we don't screw things up royally before then.

Advice from a Victorian handbook on passenger rail travel: Sit in the last car in case the locomotive's steam boiler explodes. :shock:

It's amazing we got this far....

You're lucky. I could never get Tidal to recognize my Teac UD-501.

Tidal tech support was no help.

Can you have the pc/mac send non-tidal audio to the DAC?

Yes, I can stream from the CBC web site without any issues.
