Ok, I looked at your DAC. As it has toslink and USB inputs, more than likely you will be getting better sound via USB with a decent cable, as I am guessing was your motivation in the first place.
Are you using the dedicated app from Tidal, or are you playing using the Tidal website through an internet browser? If you have not done so, download the Tidal app on the macbook. Also, pay close attention to the audio output settings on the mac.
You can try another piece of software that can integrate Tidal and bypass the Tidal app. Roon is the best audio software I have encountered, and it is what I use. I don't play to my DAC via USB, so the results are going to be different, but it is worth trying. Roon offers a 30 day trial for free. If you go this route, you will be bypassing the Bluesound altogether for Tidal, and you could even manage your digital collection that way.
