    Just install MoOde or Runeaudio or Volumio or any of the other distros for the Pi and use an android phone or tablet with Bubble uPnP app and can control Tidal from that app and Tidal streams direct to the Pi ( ie: not Airplay )

    You just choose whichever you've installed (MoOde etc) as the renderer (player) in Bubble and that's it.

    Save you a fortune as the only cost with that setup after buying the Pi is about 4 for the full Bubble app

    I'm on about my 4th trial with Roon and I'm still struggling to justify the cost of it if I buy it.

    Free options aren't as slick but.....

    Yeah, I'm a recent convert to the wonders of BubbleUpnp it really is very good.

    There's also a mopidy plugin (called UMPDCLI) that turns mopidy in to DNLA renderer so you can stream in to it from your phone/device too.

    Also what is a NUC ? (sorry)
    Sorry pal, but running Roon Core on the Pi is not possible. And thats where the NUC comes in, its a small form factor low energy consuming platform, a bit like a MacMini if that makes sense.
    So, Roon is a bit complex and a bit more costly but well worth the effort if you like streaming as aconcept! I do!
    And yes, you need a reasonably new iPad/iPhone to control Roon (or a decent PC)
