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


In that post you say that the loss of resolution is "(to my ears, at least) audible." Also--I THINK this is your own observation--"When listening to the full high-res file on a good system (or headphones), it is quite easy to hear the whispered overdub as a distinctly separate element in the mix. I cannot say the same for the MQA version. To my ears the "whisper overdub" was markedly more difficult to discern. Please try it for yourself and let me know what you think"--again, loss of resolution. Very specific and helpful. I'm traveling now--away from most of my files--but will do this test when I get home.

Others have claimed to hear "artifacts" in MQA; I'm thinking of recording engineer Brian Lucey--but he's not specific. What else do you hear, other than the loss of resolution? Anything good?

Again, I'm not being confrontational. I'm trying to learn.
