Installed Tidal on my ATV. Been listening for a couple days.
I have to admit that these are the best music surround mixes I’ve ever heard. Better than my old DTS CDs, SACDs, or DVD-Audio discs.
I did a lot of comparing and Tidal Atmos has slightly more compression than SACD. But Tidal has way less compression than Apple Music.
I just wish there were more Atmos mixes. I feel like I listened to everything in a couple of nights. Considering only my theatre speakers can really highlight the improved audio quality that Tidal provides over Apple and I don’t often listen to music in there, I can’t see paying $20 / month for Tidal. Maybe if they had 10 times the amount of Atmos content.
But it is pretty great. Check out Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings”. Really excellent. Makes me love songs I’d passed on before!
