If I understand correctly, I can configure Moode so that I don't need an additional app on my phone/tablet?
I'm not a Tidal subscriber so can't comment directly there except to say I believe you still definitely need the app, it is the Control Point.

What Moode will do is convert the Tidal stream to be rendered by the RPi via UPnP. So the phone/app remains as a remote controller or "Control Point" in UPnP parlance, while the RPi3 takes the role of Renderer or "End Point" if I'm not mistaken.

That makes sense. I'll have to give that a whirl soon, will be nice to be able to stream from Tidal, I sure do enjoy their service.

I'm using BubbleUPnP on my Android phone to make this work. The Tidal app itself doesn't seem to support a connection to another endpoint like Spotify Connect does. (unless I've missed something) Works well though.

I updated to Moode 5.0 on my bedroom streamer this afternoon. Unlike the living room unit I did last week, this bedroom unit is not running on the latest RPi3b+ board, in the bedroom I have the slightly older/lower spec'd RPi3b (non-plus) version.

Moode 5.0 is running just as smoothly on the older hardware, no discernible difference on either configuration or playback:
