Tidal offers more than 70 million songs that can be streamed in lossless HiFi or Master sound quality, depending on the subscription you choose. As long as your internet connection is stable, it is enough to listen to the music online. However, there are some cases when a user needs to listen to Tidal offline, for example in case the internet connection is bad. Or you want to keep your music files even if you decide someday to cancel the subscription. Then you will need a good Tidal recorder that will record the Tidal songs to MP3, FLAC or other formats.

Good to know: No copyright protection is circumvented
Music Streaming Services that can be recorded with Audials do not use any effective protection against recording and output unencrypted audio e.g. on the PC's sound card. Audials always only records such unencrypted audio data. According to US Copyright Law “No action may be brought … alleging infringement of copyright based on … distribution … or based on the noncommercial use by a consumer of such a … digital audio recording device”.
