Tidal masters with Aries mini


#1

Sorry if this has been covered, I’m looking to get higher than 44.1 from the Aries Mini into my Marantz SA8005 via USB input.

Streaming tidal from my Android device, I have “Masters” displayed but only seeing 44.1 on the input to the Marantz.

All input appreciated.

You need to enable Aries Mini to decode MQA via ‘additional operations’ in your Lighting DS. Also you need upgrade to the latest firmware, I think it is 5.7 for now.

Not all android devices will output higher than 44.1/48kHz via OTG-USB (MQA decoded output is always 88.2/96kHz). Check your manufactures regarding on USB output to an external DAC.
