Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Clarification

Ding ding ding!!!! The man gets a prize! :)

yes, Charles that is exactly what I am suggesting.

The fact is like lemming investors who get led off a cliff time and
time again, audiophiles, and especially those who read the magazines and blogs, have short memories.

They did this with DSD. Do you remember Lavorgna betting the farm that Sony and others would "open the vault" on DSD downloads so you need to run out and by that "DSD Ready" DAC asap. How did that turn out?

Now, if you have been able to rip your SACDs to a hard drive or listen exclusively to classical and some jazz, you did ok via the Acoustic Sounds downloads.

At least DSD was a REAL format, you could even buy a portable DSD recorder. MQA is a fabrication, and the press made a calculating
decision to jump on board with the hope of creating a new market. New markets equal new ad revenue. Ad revenue is good. Both major mags are manufacturer centric for the most part. That is how it goes.

The bloggers, Darko, etc, have jumped on board, because, try being the odd man out, and see how many review samples you get, how many press invites you get, and see how welcomed you are in rooms at CES or Munich.

In the end MQA will collapse under it's own weight. Just like what is happening somewhere else.
