New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: Now I think we are getting somewhere

>>My guess is that the DAC is showing the sample rate of the (singly "folded") incoming file. It started out as an 88.2/24 file <<

I don't think so, for two reasons. First, the little blue light came on on the Mytek Brooklyn; on every other file I've ever played (and paid attention to), that's accompanied (on the display just to the left) by the fully unfolded (original "master") resolution--usually 24/96 or 24/192; this time it said 24/44.1. (Yes, it says the same thing when I turn off MQA decoding.) Second, I read somewhere--I cannot recall where--that the master is 24/44.1. I know that doesn't inspire a lot of confidence, but I'm pretty certain I'm right. Maybe someone else can provide a source for that information? Normally you'd just be able to locate a download (HD Tracks; Pro Studio Masters) but this is one of those recordings that's not available for download above CD quality.
