Thank you for the kind words!

Not your logic follow am I... :)

If MQA becomes widely adopted, it will create strong incentives for end users to purchase new hardware that will extract the maximum performance possible from MQA-encoded files. If a hardware manufacturer's primary motive were to maximize profit, they would surely welcome a never-ending stream of changes requiring the customer to constantly upgrade their hardware. (That is the definition of planned obsolescence.) It would seem that all DAC manufacturers would stand to profit if MQA becomes widely adopted.

Perhaps I am missing something. What exactly is the "fine ethical line" you believe I am treading?
