No one is suggesting that. Maybe the best way to publish a magazine is to publish articles like the one that Issac referred to, that read like evangelical, promotional pieces, rather than, say, the authoritative pieces that Charles Hanson has been contributing about MQA in the AA forums. I'm sure that "many here" can tell the difference, and realize they are not equal.
Charles's posts are interesting but there is a chance they are primarily intended to cast MQA in a poor light because if it became ubiquitous it could negatively affect his business.
...which tells you exactly the following:
-As a CONSUMER of music, and he is a die hard music fan, he finds the idea of MQA appalling.
-As and ENGINEER, he finds it to be charlatanism, and vaporware. He has clearly illustrated this.
-As an industry participant he finds it an offensive scheme to extract fees and royalties.
He could EASILY send his gear to Meridian to take apart and provide the MQA certification. He could easily right Bob Stuart a check.
But why should he and other industry players bail out a company who has been bleeding money and is looking for a quick fix?
to imply his comments are just coming from the possibility that MQA might cost Ayre biz in the future is a stretch too far for me.
I didn't imply anything, I stated it :) - as a possibility. It is important because Charles is, rightly, held with high esteem on this board and across the industry so his thoughts count. He could sway opinions. I did ask him about his intentions and if would ever consider adding MQA to his products in an earlier thread and got a very diplomatic non-answer that made me wonder why not just give a straight answer?
I don't know enough about digital audio to refute anything posted about MQA but in the past I have read misleading information from Charles relating to technologies that run counter with those used by Ayre's. So I am a little cautious.
Did you ever consider that instead of Charles pointing out the obvious issues with MQA that it should be members of the PRESS???
Instead it has been one big circle jerk.
