Tidal/OPPO streaming issue
Please, help me understand! I didn't think the app affected the sound quality whether Oppo MediaControl vs. mconnect lite. I thought the app only controls the song selection and the software in the Oppo player is responsible for receiving and deco...

rosamiYou speak as if you are helping resolve uncertainty with my dilemma.¬† For the past couple of years, I have been considering purchasing 2.4s to compare to my 3.6s, and my concerns are the same as yours. I am totally seduced by the low end of ...
