Tidal Connect. Not specific for AVR/C-X4800H, but will Heos ever support Tidal Connect? And/or, will Heos support Tidal HiRes FLAC inside Heos? MQA is of no interest...

Asked by: KriHad
Hello, We are confident it will happen at some point, we just cannot say for sure - if or when - as things stand. I am certain further down the line there will be a good more on offer from HEOS. We have a team constinuously working tirelessy to improve the HEOS experience.

If I put my X4800h into full preamp mode (using as a pre/pro) and connect it to a power amp to drive all my speakers, will I still be able to use Dirac if I purchase it? In other words, by using a power amp, wiil purchasing Dirac be inneffective?

Asked by: Mark590
Hi Mark444, With the AVR-X4800H, Dirac Live settings are housed entirely in the processor stage, so internal or external amplification can be used without fear of Dirac being by-passed.
