RE: Likely an ignorant comment by me.

No sweat. I hear where you are coming from. And MQA/Meridian has been moving the goal posts so often, it is totally understandable why you would be confused.

As far as hirez vs rbcd...let's focus on jazz. The Bernie Grundman 24/192
remasters of almost the whole catalog is really really good. I did extensive comparisons with the CDs and the corresponding hirez files they were made from, and the files were superior across the board.

I am talking about a slew of titles from Wayne Shorter, Lou Donaldson, John Coltrane, etc.

Also, the Mobile Fidelity and Analogue Productions SACD are just incredible. To me they sound like utterly pristine vinyl without any surface noise.

Just my observations.

That being said, about 60% of my music collection is CD.
