What is TIDAL Masters?
TIDAL is delivering master-quality audio recordings directly from the source to HiFi members — an audio experience exactly as the artist intended — in partnership with MQA.

When you are in the TIDAL desktop application, go to “What’s New” and select “Masters” in the Albums section.
To get the best quality, make sure to select "HiFi/Master" quality in “Settings" and then select “Streaming".

Where do I find a full list of available master-quality albums and tracks?
TIDAL HiFi members can access our growing catalog of master-quality albums and tracks only through the TIDAL desktop application.
Go to “What’s New” and select “Masters” in the Albums section.
Master-quality albums and tracks will be available on mobile and web applications at a later date.
What will it cost?
We are introducing this to all TIDAL HiFi members at no additional charge.
How much music is available in TIDAL Masters?
We have over 30,000 tracks from Warner Music Group, our TIDAL artist owners and key independent labels. We will continue to add more master-quality content over time.
What is the difference between HiFi quality and Master quality sound?
HiFi audio is a superior sound, but is still limited in its resolution — 44.1 kHz/16 bit.
Yet TIDAL has partnered with MQA to deliver something infinitely better: an authenticated and unbroken version (typically 96 kHz/24 bit) with the highest possible resolution — as flawless as it sounded in the mastering suite. And exactly as the artist intended it to sound.
