Tony, could you write an article explaining the data flow design of the application where you are trying to take a stream from Tidal, for instance, and playing it lossless using wi-fi through an AVR to existing speakers. The Tidal app can be found on a phone, a tablet, and a device like a Firestick or Roku. I, hopefully “we”, would like to understand which part of the design actually acquires the lossless stream from Tidal and how does it get to the AVR for playback. For instance, is my phone receiving the stream and relaying it to the receiver via AirPlay or wi-fi? Or is it just telling Tidal to send it straight to the receiver via wi-fi or Ethernet, if it’s hardwired like my receiver? I know I’m probably over analyzing the application but I’m concerned about tools like AirPlay are downgrading the stream quality while I’m paying for the hi-rez streaming.

I think AirPlay over WiFi is usually 16 bit audio, but "lossless", so if the source file is 16 bit you get a good quality transmission. If the source file is higher than 16 bit, then I think AirPlay downsamples to 16 bit audio before transmitting. I think most anything you stream over WiFi using AirPlay goes at 16 bit. I think that any app that is using AirPlay to transmit will end up with 16 bit at the end. Downsampling from a higher bitrate to 16 bit might still sound great but not everyone agrees about that!

If something like Tidal's app can stream over WiFi without using AirPlay maybe it streams at a higher bitrate but I don't know what it might do. Maybe network players that have Tidal functionality built-in use your phone just for control but the actual music content is streaming over the internet to the network player directly and bypassing the phone for example? That way they can do any bitrate and compression they want to use. I think that is what they can do but not sure.

Apologies for the late final entry into this forum.

Our lucky winner from WAY back last November was Richard Bianchi from the historic state of MA, on the outskirts of Boston, the city that gave us the world's greatest NHL hockey franchise, the Boston Bruins!

We're looking forward to future contests and best of luck to all!

Sorry M8, but you definitely got the NHL part all wrong...
