RE: "...I don't see the benefit of worrying about size of files.".......

By mobile devices this would presumably be phones since this is the number one mobile device and after listening the iPod 7plus which is unlistenable dredge and my Samsung S7 Edge (which is also unlistenable dredge) the bitrate of the music seems secondary to AWFUL headphone outputs and whatever cheap arse parts both of these companies are employing.

The best sounding phone on the market is apparently the LGV20 which incorporates 4 DA converters comes with B&O play and the matching earbuds ($200 so presumably better than the ones that come with Apple and Samsung) and also has a hires microphone.

So if MQA is targeted to mobile phone plans then I suppose it makes sense but then I still don't get why a person can't just download the files off their computer to their phone and save the expense. And even then - the LGV20 may be the best sounding phone but that's like saying the Tarantula is the best looking spider.

I'm buying a CD player! :)
