Default Apple Lossless vs Tidal

I like how Darko points out all of the “Gotcha’s”. Going back to Apple lossless ALAC, someone please chime in but I was always told that it is still a compressed format even though they say CD quality. To me compression means that something is lost. Darko also pointed out something that is very important about the Apple MIDI system in that Apple does NOT automatically switch the sample rate based upon what is being sent to Apple. You must have software like Roon that will do this for you otherwise Apple is re-sampling the music to whatever the MIDI setting was last set to on your Mac.
