First post, so I'll introduce myself. Name's Kevin but I go by Rcayn. I'm 26, live in Sweden with my SO, and have been an aspiring audiophile for 6 years! I'm also pretty much broke which complicates things... Current gear DACs: Audioquest Dragonfly Red, Sabaj D5, Chord Mojo and I also have a Bifrost 2 incoming Amplifiers: Yamaha AS-2100, Rega Brio. Speakers: Rauna Vidar, Fluid Audio F5, AudioPhysic Classic 5 Headphones: Audioquest Nighthawk 2015, HD650 Earphones: Obravo Cupid, Oriolus Reborn, TRI I3 I'm mostly a speaker guy . Amarra breakdown: User interface? Horrible. Navigation? Horrible. Playlist management? Horrible. Launched in browser mode? Makes navigation and responsiveness tolerable.

Liquid, lack of digititus, and properly detached from speakers. As a digital-only guy, I can't listen to music through any other source anymore without immediately hearing that character of music-being-approximated-and-processed as opposed to music-simply-happening-in-time-and-space. If pure Tidal is akin to a solid-state amplifier, Amarra is akin to a vacuum tube amplifier. There is a true exclusive mode. Apparently the guys behind Amarra are using a proprietary code that emulates a more analog sound. It's not a simple EQ. EQ is actually offered inside the player itself. I think they messed with transients to make it sound like this but I don't really have a clue. Music just flows and oozes out the speakers in a way that pure Tidal just doesn't. I'm really not here to advertise for Amarra, truly. I am just sharing my discovery. Anyone else using Amarra Luxe? There's a free 14-day trial. I feel like there is hardly any discussion of this particular bit-perfect music player. Bonus edit: If I were to describe more specifically the concrete sonic improvements Amarra has over pure Tidal in my experience and setup; Wider, taller, and deeper stage - basically a fundamentally greater dispersion of notes. A non-insignificantly greater sense of reach-out-and-touch ala tubes. There is a very, very slight "greyness" introduced that makes everything have less sheen and vibrancy. The sheen and vibrancy that is lost actually sound artificial in hindsight (hindhearing?) The bass has a softer impact, like tubes, but also sounds better integrated with the rest of the frequency spectrum. Highs are smoothed out without losing extension. It is like adding a very faint sepia & grain filter to the music which infuses warmth and increases cohesion but subsequently reduces saturation and delineation and absolute sheen.
