Discuss a review. Provide constructive feedback. Talk to the industry.

I disagree with 1 point RE: MQA PR?.. MQA is just more garbage masquerading as progress.

CD succeeded because the masses could easily see that it was demonstrably different. The masses respond to paradigm shifts, not incremental changes. Think 78->LP; Tube->SS; LP->cassette; VHS->DVD; TV box-> flat panel.

Everything else represents differences at the margin of demand, not wholesale changes in the medium or product area.

MQA will likely fail, or remain on the periphery of the market because it is proprietary (as you correctly point out), and its benefit(s) may or may not be real. In fact we don't really know anything about it except that the process manipulates digital data, and you have to pay to play.....and it may provide more content control in a streaming world.
