Perhaps the lesson of the current 'overreach' of MQA with pretensions to inveigle its way into production workflows is the problem.
It seems an ideal format for portable digital systems... until one considers whether the DACs, mini amps and associated headphone quality might even be able to convey the time-domain advantages (while simultaneous losing bit depth).
I'd be much more inclined to see a new standard of Meridian filter applied to traditional DAC technology, without the attendant MQA compression. Perhaps there is still time for that. Who knows? But the current package deal of the MQA digital offering seems hastily confected.
"... only a very few individuals understand as yet that personal salvation is a contradiction in terms."
