Right now we are in a modern streaming era where we can access tens of millions of tracks at the tap of a touchscreen. There's a wide range of streaming services to choose from, including Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Tidal, Deezer, and so on. Tidal stands tall as one of the best music streaming services with its superior audio. How good is the audio that Tidal offers, how can we download lossless music from Tidal, and where does the Tidal download go? We are going to explain everything clearly in this article.
As the music streaming industry is growing, an increasing number of providers are offering lossless audio quality, including Tidal, which offers two subscription options – HiFi and HiFi Plus.
Tidal HiFi allows users to listen to music in lossless high-fidelity audio (1411kbps, 16 bit/44.1kHz), while Tidal HiFi Plus offers even higher audio quality, i.e., Immersive Audio (360 Reality Audio and Dolby Atmos) and Master (up to 9216 Kbps, 24 bit/192kHz).
CD offers full 44.1kHz uncompressed digital audio. For Tidal HiFi users, the highest audio quality that’s available is the same as CD quality. Tidal HiFi Plus option enables users to obtain audio better than CD quality.
Tidal offers lossless audio, but it doesn’t mean that everything on Tidal is lossless. There are various audio qualities for you to choose from.
Tidal makes it easy for HiFi & HiFi Plus users to download an album or a playlist from Tidal to a mobile device for offline streaming. Just open the Tidal app, go to a playlist and click Download to start the downloading.

Tidal allows paid subscribers to download music from Tidal to Android & iOS devices for offline streaming. One thing you should be aware of is that all the music you download from Tidal through the Tidal app are cache files. You can’t copy or move them to other devices for normal playback. It’s meaningless to find out the exact location. Yet you can change the storage path if needed.
Just launch the Tidal app on your device, go to Settings, scroll down to Download Destination, and you can then change the default storage path. If you are using a mobile phone with an SD card, you’ll see two options available for you to choose from – Internal and Memory card. By default, it’s set to be stored in Internal. You can select Memory card if you want the offline download to be saved to your SD Card.

Just launch Sidify Tidal Music Converter, click the Converted icon in the left side, and you can check all the Tidal songs that have been downloaded successfully. Move your mouse to a specific title, click the folder icon and you'll be directed to the output folder.
