RE: AQ finally updated the Dragonfly - MQA is here!

Yes but...

I was talking with AQ today at High End Munich. It turns out that MQA decoding is only available if another processor does the first unfolding (to 24/96). As that software is only available on desktop apps ( e.g. Tidal, Audiovarna) then portable MQA via the Dragonfly seems not possible. Which is odd logic as I guess that many (most ?) Dragonfly users are portable users connecting it to phone or tablet. I also think that currently the majority of hi-rez is 24/96 being a common recording standard.

The Dragonfly will then unfold higher data rates and will unlock the DAC to process up to 24/768.
