RE: The MQA demo I heard on Sunday

"Peter played an older South American (mixed instrument) recording saying 'this is the original file'. It sound flat and two dimensional and frankly non involving. It was about a 45 seconds to one minute in length. Next he announced the he was going to play the same file but with the MQA process applied."

I wouldn't be able to determine whether the sound of an unfamiliar recording was good or bad with a clip that short in duration. Unless it was flat-out horrid......

The biggest issue I have with all digital audio playback is "listener fatigue"..... It would take me at least fifteen minutes to determine whether it performed well in that regard. (And if it performs poorly, I'd need another 15 minutes to recover before listening to anything after that.)
