Hi. I´m using a Fiio M6 as an external DAC, connected to my Mac Mini late 2014, running MacOS Big Sur, through USB.
Settings: I selected my Fiio M6 as an MQA decoder for Tidal. The question is: when I see, at the bottom left corner MQA 24/192 with the blue dot (or green dot, depending on the album)…does it really mean that the Fiio M6 is processing and decoding properly MQA?
After reading the features of the device, I don´t see it is considered as MQA-compatible.
When playing streaming with Qobuz, no problem at all. If the album is HiRes 24/192, I know that the Fiio M6 is HiRes compatible, according to Fiio website and the device itself (on the back of the DAP, I see the HiRes logo…so no doubt about it).
But, when I listen to an album on Tidal, labelled as MQA, and the 24/192 with the blue or green dot, appears on the bottom left corner, does it really mean that the M6 is actually “decoding and processing” completely the MQA album?
Or is it, in fact, being really played as 16/44.1 Cd-quality, despite the MQA logo and the blue or green dot?
I´ve been looking for the info, but there seems to be no confirmation of MQA support for the Fiio M6 when used as an external DAC.
Does anyone know the answer for this?
