TIDAL MQA support (Grand Integrated & Bluesound Node 2i)

I’m owner of a "Peachtree Audio" "Grand Integrated" digital stereo amplifier.

I’m thinking af buying af "Node 2i" from "Bluesound". I wan’t to use the unit for playing TIDAL HIFI. What is the best solution for connecting the device to my "Grand Integrated"? And will the Grand Integrated built in DAC support the MQA sound from TIDAL? The DAC in my amplifier is a ESS Sabre32 9018 Digital-to-Analog Converter.

I believe the DAC is better in the "Grand Integrated". I want to use that instead of the DAC in Bluesound Node 2i.

Need som advice - Most optinal setup/connection...

MQA on Grand Integrated

MQA's proprietary tech requires both software and licensed hardware to decode up to 192. The Node 2i will support MQA up to 192, but the Grand Integrated will not.
