..that is because there is absolutely no valid reason for someone to invest in an "MQA Ready" DAC right now unless they are just at the upgrade point with an antiquated unit, or buying their first DAC.

If Tidal does not survive, which could happen, there would be no point to MQA. Unless some new lossless premium streaming service magically appears.

From the article:

"'But I read on a forum you said...' The thing about forums is the people
who spend the most time participating on forums, spend the least time
participating in real life."

Let me say good for you for hiring a 20 something female at Sphile. The middle aged male power paradigm is about to end after hundreds of years next January..so why not at your magazine too. :) Bravo.

who spent most time on the forum promoting MQA and the software 'catalog'?

I note the post from a Stereophile contributor who wrote to the effect that ''they said, he reported''.

Thank you. That's not the reason we hired Jana Dagdagan, but turned out
to be a bonus, judging how she was received at the recent RMAF.

More power to her..and as well as yourself and Stereophile. She has star quality from what I heard, aside from being a musician, and a blogger. It may not be the changing of the guard, but it is a start...!

You guys are the Fox News of audio; making stuff up to fit your narrative. If you'd read my review of MQA, or even the post you linked to, you'll have recognized that any claim of "backracking" is complete nonsense.

Then again, complete nonsense is the order of the day here, isn't it.

All My Love,

Up till recently, I regarded you as a reviewer/poster who mostly makes sense. Your rants here are just senseless resopnses by someone who is feeling the heat for promoting something that only you and a few others can hear.

Feeling the heat? From these tepid waters? Try again, FMAK.

..."feeling the heat for promoting something that only you and a few others can hear."

Don't you mean "have heard"? If not, I do not understand what you are getting at.

I don't know why you zombie libtards can't make a simple post about audio without flinging your ideological feces at the keyboard.

Now back to your corporatist cage you fleabit peanut monkey.

And yes I hope my post gets yours deleted - douche.

Welcome back!

And thank you for the recommendation of the Sonos Connect a while back, it worked out well.

Glad the Connect worked our for you.

I don't trust any corporate media anymore FYI, including FOX. Nor should they be trusted.

the meaning is clear, if you reflect on what is (or is not) available to inmates and forget about your own free supply of MQA hardware and software.

..."free supply of MQA hardware and software"

Oh, Now I get it! You object to my job. You should have said so from the get go...
