This isn't correct. Yes, I was supplied with such material, but so were other
members of Stereophile's staff: Jim Austin, Michael Lavorgna, Jon Iverson,
Kal Rubinson, and Herb Reichert. To my personal knowledge, people at
AudioQuest, Michal Jurewicz, at Mytek, engineers George Massenburg and
Bob Ludwig, and Peter McGrath at Wilson were also given such files. I
assume that members of the staff at The Absolute Sound were also given
such material, but I don't know that for a fact.

See David Chesky's opinion of MQA at the link below.

Doug has told me in person that he was not sent any material despite his
requests. Who were the others?
