TIDAL Audio Digital

Technology & Emotion

At first glance, these two words might seem to have little in common. But actually, in our company at least, the two are fundamentally related. At TIDAL, the technology may be highly advanced but it is only a means to an end - a tool for the presentation of music, the communication of great art.
When you listen to one of our systems, you will never hear the underlying science. Were you to become aware of any contributing component, we would have failed in our grand ambition.

TIDAL technology works its magic behind the scenes, like the revered world-famous chef at a world-class restaurant. It operates as a discreet, undetectable conduit that conveys the message of the music whilst perfectly preserving its original sonic fingerprint. As with an exquisite wristwatch, the seamless interaction of three elements allows the creation of a TIDAL masterpiece: Consummate technology, the finest components and precision manufacturing.

The TIDAL Audio Camira DMC (DAC)

The TIDAL Camira DMC Digital Music Converter uses TIDAL's proprietary Analog Signal Remediation Technology (ASRT). The TIDAL Camira of course handles all digital formats incl. dsd/dxd, high resolution formats.

So what is it what ASRT exactly do? It makes 44.1 KHz signal sounding like native high resolution formats. Maybe even close to vinyl. The TIDAL Camira remediates the "missing steps" from 44.1 KHz to create a way higher resolution quality. How it works exactly? Other than up-sampling, which works only for pure sine waves and delivers for music signals only random interpolated results (since it changes the signal because of the physical limitation of the interpolation calculation process itself), TIDAL's ASRT does not change the original signal at all and delivers the perfectly timed signal without any pre-ringing and post-ringing at all.

The overall result is the world's first, as they call it, Digital Music Converter. Of course friends, one would call our device a DAC, and for sure it is - but the result from it is so “not DAC” that they thought it is time for a new name.
