crashing, and quality issues with qobuzz and tidal

I was hoping to use the app to stream my qobuzz or tidal music to a network DLNA device (Dynaudio connect). I managed to get the install to work and the device to appear after install, but the quality of the audio was absolutely terrible. I read somewhere that I thought is was CD quality (i.e. lossless) pushing the audio to the network device, so I’m not sure why the quality was terrible, any thoughts?

Also, then when I tried to keep using it, it now constantly crashes. “An unhandled error has occurred. See the crash log…” I pasted the log below.

Here, let me to fix the issue of crashing and quality issues on Tidal. Tidal offers two tiers, Tidal Premium at AAC 320 kbps high-quality tracks and Tidal HiFi at 1411 kbps FLAC songs. So how to avoid Tidal crash and keep high quality?
Let’s meet Tidal Converter to download and convert Tidal music as FLAC, WAV to keep lossless audio files and then you won’t need to open Tidal anymore to listen to Tidal files. As you can use any media player to listen to Tidal tracks. No worry about any crashing of Tidal app anymore.
