Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

a great explanation of how MQA works from Meridian

It seems what he is saying is that the Tidal app by itself is taking the 24/48 file which contains region A with B and C embedded and Creates the 24/96 file which contains regions A and B with C embedded. To get C you need a dac with MQA decoding. That is why a dac without MQA decoding sounds better with a MQA file streamed from Tidal because you are getting A and B while a 16/44 file only gives you region A. I think I am finally getting it.
