RE: Gasp! More Jaws Dropping over MQA in Los Angeles!


None of the what you listed has any relelevance what so ever.

The only way to do a comparison and decide what is better, is the SAME ALBUM, from the SAME mastering, as the same resolution.


An MQA file at 24/96 against the original 24/96 file it was created from, not against one of any number of 16/44 versions of that album on Tidal.

And absolutely not against "an SACD". "Red book CD", or any generic hypothetical.

Same album, same mastering, same resolution.

By the way... you may be on to something.

Maybe the only way to verify MQA's far fetched claims about blurring in digital is to compare it directly to a AAA vinyl version of that title.
It is going to have characteristics of the master tape if done well.
