New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.


the whole premise for MQA is solving a problem I don't personally have, namely reducing bandwidth of high(-er) resolution tracks transmitting across networks for some eternally shifting and specious reason. I object to paying for random middlemen of questionable value and being worked over by the High-Resolution mob.

Even in the UK, where the roll-out of fibre networks is woefully slow for such an advanced economy, fibre networks are finally getting up to 1,000mbps in some towns/cities and not everyone uses a capped service. Do I want to contribute to knee-capping future music production with spurious technology when time will mitigate this apparent bottleneck? No.

No, I haven't used it. Can't see a compelling reason to do so, not even for simple idle curiosity. Unless the technology is categorically providing more fidelity, it seems unnecessary. I can roll valves or cables (et al) if I want tone control.

Wouldn't you agree?
