How do I use TIDAL with the Cambridge Audio Connect App?

To access TIDAL on the CA Connect App you will need to navigate to Library via the list Icon in the bottom left of the screen.



TIDAL can be found under your list of NAS drives or UPNP servers



To login you will simply need to select ‘My TIDAL’. Here you will be able to input your TIDAL username and password.



Once logged in you will be able to browse either the ‘My TIDAL’ section or ‘TIDAL Recommends’.



‘My TIDAL’ will include any playlists, albums, artists or tracks you have added to your collection on TIDAL by pressing the ‘like button’.
