Part 1. How to Use Tidal on Sony Walkman Online

Sony Walkman has different series, including CD Walkman, MD Walkman, Network Walkman, and so on. To play Tidal music on the Sony Walkman, it is essential to understand if the Walkman supports direct streaming from the Tidal app.

If you are a Sony NW-A105 or NW-A306 user, you can play Tidal music on your Sony devices directly since these two Sony Walkman devices have built-in support for Tidal Music. But please note that an active Tidal subscription is required to access and stream music from the Tidal app on the Sony NW-A105 and NW-A306. Now let's explore the detailed instructions to play Tidal music on Sony NW-A105/NW-A306 online.

Part 2. How to Download Tidal Music for Any Sony Walkman

In fact, most Sony Walkman players are not compatible with the Tidal app. If you are not a Sony NW-A105 or NW-A306 user, another workaround is downloading your favorite Tidal tracks locally. Since the Sony Walkman also supports local music files, you can transfer the downloaded Tidal songs to your Sony player for offline listening. But you may find it unworkable. While you have subscribed to Tidal, it only allows you to download music with DRM protection and restricts you from playing it outside of the Tidal app. Also, you are not allowed to use it for offline playback when your subscription expires. In this case, the required tool to download Tidal music is the ViWizard Tidal Music Converter.
