In Reply to: RE: MQA ... why bother? ... why not just use least significant bits truncation? posted by bjh on May 22, 2017 at 12:34:09
Mqa is not getting rid of the bottom 8 bits. They are actual encoding additional information into those bits and then recovery that content in the decoding or as they call it the unfolding process. Your way gets rid of those bits but does not add any additional info
It seems you are asserting the low order bits *are not* replaced as Charles Hansen says.
If that *is* the case could you please share what you know on the topic ... which would presumably be that origami folding (encoding) of 2FS and 4FS audio info into the low order bits is done in a manner that allows (on decoding) recovery of LSB bits to original values (in addition to the 2FS and 4FS info)
If that *is not* the case then please re-read my post and the Hansen posts referenced within.
I don't understand what you are saying. I am saying that the lower 8 bits of the 24 bit MQA file have additional content stored in those bottom 8 bits.
Oh thanks ... and since I can't make it any simpler for you let's just leave it at that.
Charles Hanson above said the exact same thing I said. Maybe it's you that has no idea what your'e talking about
