Home Hi-Rez Highway

New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: Well,

I think this why folks keep going round and round.

let me take this step by step.

-Tidal streams Redbook CD and so called Tidal MQA Masters, which are
supposed to be fold downs of Hi Rez masters, which then unfold to 24/96, which Tidal caps, even if the original master was 24/192.

-so you are comparing the "unfolded" 24/96 and comparing it to a Redbook CD of UNKNOWN origin and mastering? Do you know how many Rumours CDs there are? It has been remastered at least 3 times, NOT counting "Gold Discs" and boutique releases.

Check this out. Look at just the CD releases

I know for a fact Rumours was remastered from the original two track mixes at 24/96 in 2013 and was also remixed for a DVD-A and 5.1 years ago. I was there when it was done.

So you see, when you talk about how great MQA you are comparing a hirez master, with MQA DSP, against a CD, which I know for a fact, even if it is the latest Anniv Edition, has more compression.

So it is all rather disingenuous (NOT you, but MQA/Tidal.

Am I unclear? Not being sarcastic I want to know if the above makes sense.
