Perdon my ignorance, but I thought MQA was a way to preserve CD quality for streaming. How could it better than a full bandwith CD?
MQA is meant to provide Master Quality, IOW 24/96 or other hirez formats. On a CD, I don't know how it will do it, but there is some Lossless/lossy (seems to be some controversy on which) compression, and you need hardware/software to uncompress.
If we can fit DSD information on to a SACD, why do I need to pay Meridian to screw up a high-res recording with unnecessary lossy compression and decompression?
"... only a very few individuals understand as yet that personal salvation is a contradiction in terms."
Because Meridian is a failed business bleeding money, and they pulled MQA out of their sphincter to save their sinking ship. It almost worked.
