    It's here. As of Saturday 1/7/17, Tidal has been streaming hundreds of albums in full MQA. According to Tidal, they're only available through the Tidal desktop browser, but I'm able to stream them to my Bluesound Node using the BlueOS app for my iphone as well. They also show about 200 albums available, but other users have found closer to 700 and growing every day. MQA is only available to users with Tidal's Hi-Fi service, and requires a DAC compatible with MQA (such as the Bluesound Node) to get the full benefit.

    MQA is probably the only thing that would cause me to upgrade my Tidal subscription from 320k AAC( :music: to me) to high res. Will have to get an MQA compatible DAC first.
