Ding ding ding!!!! The man gets a prize! :)
yes, Charles that is exactly what I am suggesting.
The fact is like lemming investors who get led off a cliff time and
time again, audiophiles, and especially those who read the magazines and blogs, have short memories.
They did this with DSD. Do you remember Lavorgna betting the farm that Sony and others would "open the vault" on DSD downloads so you need to run out and by that "DSD Ready" DAC asap. How did that turn out?
Now, if you have been able to rip your SACDs to a hard drive or listen exclusively to classical and some jazz, you did ok via the Acoustic Sounds downloads.
At least DSD was a REAL format, you could even buy a portable DSD recorder. MQA is a fabrication, and the press made a calculating
decision to jump on board with the hope of creating a new market. New markets equal new ad revenue. Ad revenue is good. Both major mags are manufacturer centric for the most part. That is how it goes.
The bloggers, Darko, etc, have jumped on board, because, try being the odd man out, and see how many review samples you get, how many press invites you get, and see how welcomed you are in rooms at CES or Munich.
In the end MQA will collapse under it's own weight. Just like what is happening somewhere else.
The wall street guys destroyed human lives. I don't think MQA will do that. The comparison is asinine and juvenile
I suppose if we want to be pedantic, even the Wall Street debacle did not "destroy human lives" - that act would require killing a person. While I am certain that MQA will never kill a person, I'm unsure if even the Wall Street debacle did that either.
Nevertheless Mr. Garvey's comparison may be apt in other regards. I suspect everyone will have their own opinion as to the appropriateness of the comparison. Speaking of which, all postings here reflect strictly my own opinions, and not necessarily that of my employer, associates, family, or friends.
"The wall street guys destroyed human lives. I don't think MQA will do that."
This is true.
"The comparison is asinine and juvenile."
Strictly in your opinion.
