It is now one week later.

Highresaudio continue to offer MQA downloads (see link for an example) and the MQA website still has them listed as download partners. I said at the time that original message seemed naive and unprofessional. Furthermore at least part of the technical claim was incorrect.

Clearly the second message's claim that all references and links to MQA on highreaudio were to be removed from "01:03" ( no doubt that odd three minutes past the hour was to add a spurious sense of "accuracy") has not taken place.

My conclusion has to be that this story is/was fake.

WRONG.

The announcement was NOT A FAKE. This YOUR conclusion with no research.

I have been in contact with HRA directly and they CONFIRMED the news. They removed their Facebook and Twitter posts to protect them from any legal backlash.

The MQA albums will come down. Sorry if that does not fit your storyline.

What a crudely worded response. It doesn't help your case, right or wrong.

The mere fact that they said they were going to remove all references to MQA last week ( according to your own posting) and have not done so does throw what you say into question. Please post your response from HRA which may then give you some credence.

No sir, complaining about the "crudeness" of my posts is NOT going to change the fact you pulled something totally out of your crack. There was no hack and there is no hoax, as much as the MQA fan boys would like it to be true.

I will ask HRA for permission to post their response to our private communication.

FYI, I sent and received a follow up email from HRA, and they ONE HUNDRED PERCENT confirmed those Twitter and FB posts were NOT a hack.

They in fact may be CONTRACTUALLY obligated to keep MQA albums up for a certain period. That is the story.

Now please with the fake news.
