PS audio new 25K dac and the psychological effect of owning a company's best.
$25k can get you a life time Qobuz subscription plus local symphony orchestra. . I won't spend more than $1000 for a good DAC. $5000 a good pair of good speakers. Enjoy the music not the quipment. 
I am no longer getting MQA?
Tidal has App on Opportunity-105 (D). Can use iPad or any handheld device to browse and play as long as it is on the same Wifi network. A very good feature.  
Can we talk about Qobuz for a minute
MQA filles are smaller than Qubuz full HiRes. Tidal is very good if you Wifi or cellular speed is not fast or on the road. To me Tidal SQ is already as close as CD but if your home setting is HiRes, I will go Qobuz. 
SACD Transport Rocomendations
Also SACD is has 5.0 channel. My Oppo 95 105 205 all have 5.0. pair Brystin 9BST 5 channel amp and five speakers and you will have a much better sound image. HiRes PCM only has two channels.

Tidal Music
I have Tidal and really enjoy the music library. For mobile streaming, HiRes music signal sometimes will drop off due to reception quality. Sportify MP320 would be the choice. Anyway, music is not just sound quality. Tidal 16/44.1k would be good e... 
Do we really need anything greater than 24/96? Opinions?
Yes, you need 92k/24bit. 192k/24bit would be even better, better with an R2R DAC. Or go with DSD 2.8Mhz/1bit sigma-delta DAC.  
Why does streaming need to be so complex
My son attend college. So I have the student discount subscription of Tidal which is cheaper than Amazon HD. Also I was lucky to get the Oppo205 before they close down. I am streaming MQA through 205. They removed Tidal App from 205. So I will kee... 
Why does streaming need to be so complex
Op, your Oppo105 has Tidal app. You don't need to use outboard DAC since Oppo DAC is very good. You can use Wifi or hardwire your Oppo to a router. Use XLR balanced out line level. Use a class A tube preamp and solid state amp. Use ipod or any tab... 
Why does my old CD player sound so much better than my new streamer?
Streaming music (uncompressed) suppose sound as good as CD player if you used same DAC. I like Tidal streaming esp with MQA. If I have collection of SACD and 192/24 HiRes music and they do sound better than 44.1/16. However, I enjoy reading CD boo... 
Do we really need anything greater than 24/96? Opinions?
Yes if you have young ears to enjoy HiRes. Too back many young folks listen to 329kps MP3 with beats. HiRes is a waste for old ears.  
Do we really need anything greater than 24/96? Opinions?
I have 6TB of 96/24 and 192/24 FLAC files of music. and more than 1000 44.1K/16bit CDs. I will always prefer HiRes. However, I enjoy all of them. Music is music.
