Oppo 105D and Tidal

Thinking about the 105D - have the Oppo HA-1 in another setup, which which I am very impressed.
So, can I infer that the Oppo 105D works with Tidal directly?

Yes, Lumin makes outstanding devices, but they are pricey.

How do you like their software? I have heard very good things about their user interface. Do you need a minimserver to use Lumin?

I have not tried that, but if it is not a compressed (zip, .tar) file, it should work. I don't know how well the Oppo will search the tags and display the albums. But I have hooked up the external...
