RE: MQA-Encoded CDs Are Coming

If I were to get excited about the prospect of MQA encoded CDs (unlikely), I would not be encouraged by a single release of music written by a minor composer played by unknown artists on a boutique label which is available only in Japan.

Furthermore there are no CD players AFAIK with MQA decoding. So it is only playable with full MQA decoding to those with a transport/DAC combination where the DAC features MQA. I think we are talking a very small potential user base here.

I suspect this will be as succesful as double sided CDs ( remember those?).
