RE: Two MUST reads for digital audio consumers

Thanks for the links in particular the Recorind Academy pdf. It is so nice to find a technical dicument that is so well written, as if the author imagined that his/her readers may not actually have physics Phds.

For me there were two revelations that outweigh anything to do with MQA. The first is the apparent lack of knowledge about basic audio theory, techniques and standards that may exist with some producers and artists. I left the industry 16 years ago but it seems much remains the same.

The second is the realisation by the hi-rez consortium that the consumer requires reassurance as to the provenance of the hi-rez files he is purchasing. The forthcoming adoption of a system of coding to represent provenance similar (if of necessity more complex) to the old SPARS codes for CD is an action that must be applauded.

As for MQA, yes it receives only a cursory mention. However the passage is nevertheless highly positive in regard to MQA's benefits and acceptance. Of course, I cannot vouch for its accuracy on either count.
