FAQ: Prisma

Is Tidal HiFi Masters available with Prisma?

Tidal Master playback with Prisma is available using:
  • AirPlay (with Master file playback resolution at 16/44.1)
  • Roon with Chromecast built-in as endpoint, resolution up to 24/96, or directly, following Roon Ready certification, resolution up to 24/192 (Roon Ready certification and automatic over the air – OTA – update expected for NP5 Prisma January 2021, with all other Prisma models to follow shortly thereafter).
  • Tidal Master file playback is not available for playback using the Chromecast built-in platform directly. We are exploring options with Google to provide Tidal Master playback with Chromecast built-in, but are uncertain when that might be possible.
  • We are currently working with Tidal to make Tidal Connect available on all Prisma models by automatic software in 2021.
  • Another option would be to use a third party UpNP control application such as mconnect or BubbleUpNP, with resolution up to 24/48.
