New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

I'm with you on this one....

There is a LOT of stuff out there in 'Audio World' that I have but a passing interest and ZERO desire to invest.

If others are willing to spend their money and try to move the box down the road, good on them!

I have a passing interest in MQA as I subscribe to TIDAL. The few albums I have had a chance to compared in both the HiFi and Master versions, with and without MQA, using just the OS-X TIDAL Player doing the decoding on my MacBook Air, seem to show an improvement in SQ with MQA. As long as TIDAL doesn't try to charge a premium for this additional step up in sound quality (small as it may be), why should I complain?

Then inmate 'Bullethead' sends me his Meridian Explorer 2 to try and it seems to work as well; with a noticeable improvement when comparing HiFi vs. Master versions of the same title.

I need a different cabling (on order) to do a true A:B with my Audio-GD DAC using the same balanced headphone and the Audio-GD Headphone Amp with both DACs.

Should I send inmate 'Bullethead' a box of cigars for the Meridian DAC?

Small price to pay, says I.
