In Reply to: RE: A CHORD DAC Review, or more MQA PR? posted by John Atkinson on May 23, 2017 at 04:29:27
Chord will not have to make any decisions about MQA. Just like Schiit audio made no concessions to DSD and most of their DAC models are back ordered.
Judging digital components based on unicorn "formats" is absurd.
Still waiting for the DSD downloads.
You're not trying very hard...!
680 DSD64 downloads on superhirez.com, the largest vendor. Under 200 rock and pop.
680 since the "big announcement" in 2013.
For esoteric genres there is more available elsewhere, and they are expensive.
Pretty much all classical and supposedly sourced from DSD masters (not converted).
Not that I have any skin in the DSD game as my Multi-Bit DAC doesn't do DSD.
0.001% of available content. ;)
THAT'S the question. ;-)
I know very well that there are probably several thousand classical DSD downloads available..vintage analog converted, and numerous pure direct to DSD recordings.
Classical music is less than 1% of the music market. Unless you have a significant number of popular titles, a revolution it does not make.
I posted numerous times before that if you listen mainly to classical and esoteric genres, you will have lots of DSD albums to play as long as you are willing to spend a lot of money.
