What is the difference between HiFi quality and Master quality sound?
HiFi audio is a superior sound, but is still limited in its resolution — 44.1 kHz/16 bit. TIDAL has partnered with MQA to deliver something infinitely better: An authenticated and unbroken sound (typically 96 kHz/24 bit) with the highest possible resolution — as flawless as it sounded in the mastering suite.
