    It would be nice to hear from Andre regarding the current state of play.
    I'm in the market for a new streamer and one of these would be on my shortlist.

    Firstly, thank you to the OP for taking the time to write up the review of this device. I am looking at upgrading my Sonos Connect and have been looking at the Primo partly based on the review it got on Darko's youtube channel and the write-up above.

    I am quite new to streaming so forgive what might be a newbie type of question. Can the Primo handle playback of the Tidal masters MQA file format? I haven't been able to get clarity on that from the online searching I've been doing over the last few days.

    Any feedback/thoughts on the above would be hugely appreciated.

    Here's the official thread on the Volumio forum, not sure if you'll find the answer there.

    The short answer is that Volumio will handle MQA files if you have an MQA-enabled USB DAC.
    The longer answer is this thread: https://forum.volumio.org/mqa-t10205.html
