RE: HighResAudio dumps MQA.

"There are plenty of opportunities to listen to the same song at 16/44.1 and MQA 24/96 on TIDAL. It doesn't take long to determine that the MQA version is obviously better. "

Yest gain the SAME false nonsense is getting posted.

What you are "comparing" is a CD master of undetermined origin against the MQA version which began with 24 bit files.

When Meridian actually allows DIRECT comparison to the original hirez file approved by the mastering engineer against their "MQA'd version" then people will give a damn.

"As TIDAL puts more and more MQA files online the pressure on DAC manufacturers to add MQA to their products is going to build and build. It won't be long that every DAC will have to offer MQA decoding/rendering."

I am afraid you are living in a fantasy world.

MQA is one of the most shameful attempts we have seen yet to move boxes out of the factory and to save a dying company like Meridian.
