As far as I am aware from various sources the entire Warners catalogue has been MQA encoded and Sony and UMG estimate that their entire catalogues will be MQA encoded by Spring. Note: entire catalogues.
Of course the encoding does not equal supply to to Tidal and loading onto their servers. That takes further time.
direct me to where the entire WB catalog is available in downloadable form.
I'll ask the same question about Universal in a few months.
I have already partially provided the answer to your quesion " Of course the encoding does not equal supply to to Tidal and loading onto their servers. That takes further time." But it is, of course, not downloadable. You are introducing something that I have not suggested in any way and you are then asking me to justify it (this is what is called a "man of straw" argument). As I have kept on repeating, MQA is fundamentally about streaming and the distribution of high-rez files via this medium.

Fine. So the *entire* catalog is encoded somewhere but totally inaccessible. That's totally useless.
As I have kept on repeating, MQA is fundamentally about streaming and the distribution of high-rez files via this medium.
That's not at all the impression I've gotten from your contributions to this thread. What do we find?
charging inflated premium rates for anything above CD resolution with the concomitant long download times ?...
They do, however, offer a novel implementation of the distribution of high resolution PCM files.
As for me, I regularly download true high resolution files from hdtracks.com in a couple of minutes. And?
Only now do you acknowledge that this is all about streamed content over the internet.
If you only listen to silver disc or even hi-rez downloads then it is not relevant.
Exactly my point. I have no intention of *renting* my music indefinitely. That is a revenue model, not a high resolution music model.
Virtually all of us will be getting our new music in a few years time only via the internet in one form or another.
I count on that! Downloading content once and not being forced to pay for it each and every month. Each and every month. I am a collector of music, not shiny plastic discs in a box. Do you perpetually lease your vehicles? I don't. Do you rent your living space every month? I don't.
As was reported in the original text, MQA is all about revenue generation, not high resolution music.
