I think Mr Hansen is a straight shooter of the highest order. An an ethical businessman.
I think he is just for MQA failing from the perpspetive of a music consumer and a digital engineer.
In fact one could argue in speaking out against MQA, he maybe going against his own interests if it manages to fool the masses and catch on...without "MQA Ready" digital products he will lose out financially.

Thanks for the kind words. For what it's worth I wasn't so much "speaking out against MQA" as I was simply surprised to find a seemingly obvious glitch in the process uncovered by a hobbyist who, while clearly being technically astute, is clearly not a digital audio engineer.
As always my posts reflect only my opinions and not necessarily those of my employer or house-cat.
...Aside from any technical glitches,...MQA has been markerted as a solution for problems that don't exist.
Bandwidth? Utter nonsense.
'Authentication" absolute crap.
An intelligent algorithm that can 'de-blur" timing errors of multiple ADCs? Well you know....
Couple that with a constantly changing story...first it was for downloads, then it was just for streaming,...first it had to be applied at the mastering stage...oops, no, it can be a post mastering process...it is lossless...well, no, it is not.
And the press has pivoted with every new story.
Charlatanism at it's very best. Or worst, depending how you look at it.
