Tidal Masters sounds good to my iron ears so far. Might be placebo, might be just being high but as long as it pleases me, don't really care about the fine details.

This thing feels to me like it could be pretty significant. Put aside all the conspiracy theory nonsense and what you've got is a distribution format that allows streaming good quality at a reaso

I just hope they continue to provide 16/44 streaming, even though that's apparently not the marketing focus anymore. Don't fuck this up for me Jay-Z.

Search for "Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross" on Tidal. They come up as an artist together, but I was having an issue pulling up THAT one (it pulled them up individually, and I also favorited some NIN for work tomorrow). I'm not in love with the search on Tidal, but I usually find what I want (and only once or twice have I found it only to have it not streamable.)

As far as Neko Case goes, here's the deluxe edition.

Hope that halfway helps.

Oh right, the Neko Case I found but it said that I couldn't play it.  I didn't realize there was another copy of the album that you could play.  

 

I also found some Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross but I couldn't find that particular album.

Oops, accidentally left tidal playing all day and used up 32GB of data since 4/11 according to comcast. 

Yeezh.  If I did that on my phone, I'd be 30GB over my limit, at $15/GB, and 29 days left of the month to tread water on.  I actually have Spotify set to only play over wi-fi or download.  Need to see if Tidal does the same.

I've been using Tidal for a few days, I got a 30 days trial, an offer they started to promote their business opening in Spain. When it sounds it sounds very good, but it skips a lot, and sometimes it won't play. So the app tells you to stop using HiFi and switch to high quality instead, since they're having problems, which sounds more or less like Spotify. Are you having this skipping problem in the US too? I wonder if they're getting more users than they expected.

I'm pretty sure Tidal is having some issues on their end. I have problems, especially with starting song loads on both home and company networks. Rarely have timeouts after it starts... if it does.

My guess is it's your home network that is the bottleneck. I only have issues with TIDAL streaming when someone else in the house is chewing up bandwidth.

Not really, I can watch Berliner Philharmoniker concerts in HD without a single glitch.

I know, but that's not the way I intend to use Tidal, I want it to work in my Mac to feed the office system. The Mac is connected to a W4S or Mytek DSD and this one feeds the YBA and the speakers, so not really interested on lossless playback on the phone, I use the iTouch for music on the go.

I apologize -- it seems like quite a few people are having the same experiences that you are. There's a pretty detailed thread here (haven't read it all yet, hoping there might be some insight within):
