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

I think Tidal at least for now is not charging more for MQA because they are hoping to attract new subscribers
Regarding the 2L files, first my dac is the Audio-GD Master 7. It is a ladder dac using 8 1704 ladder dac chips. It is limited to 24/192. If I listen to the same DXD file in 16/44 24/96 24/192 and MQA there are small differences but again nothing jaw dropping. I could easily live with the 16/44 encoding. Remember the recording and masters of these 2L files is incredibly good to begin with. I may be close to the ultimate resolution of my system. Shindo preamp driving 2 Berning ZH270 amps driving Maggie 3.6 speakers. I am also 75 years old and I may be at the limits of my hearing resolutionalthough for example can still hear cable differences, even USB cables. I still know that ultimately it is the quality of the original recording and mastering that mainly determines how good a recording will sound
