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

RE: So

You are introducing something that I have not suggested in any way

Fine. So the *entire* catalog is encoded somewhere but totally inaccessible. That's totally useless.

As I have kept on repeating, MQA is fundamentally about streaming and the distribution of high-rez files via this medium.

That's not at all the impression I've gotten from your contributions to this thread. What do we find?

charging inflated premium rates for anything above CD resolution with the concomitant long download times ?...

They do, however, offer a novel implementation of the distribution of high resolution PCM files.

As for me, I regularly download true high resolution files from hdtracks.com in a couple of minutes. And?

Only now do you acknowledge that this is all about streamed content over the internet.

If you only listen to silver disc or even hi-rez downloads then it is not relevant.

Exactly my point. I have no intention of *renting* my music indefinitely. That is a revenue model, not a high resolution music model.

Virtually all of us will be getting our new music in a few years time only via the internet in one form or another.

I count on that! Downloading content once and not being forced to pay for it each and every month. Each and every month. I am a collector of music, not shiny plastic discs in a box. Do you perpetually lease your vehicles? I don't. Do you rent your living space every month? I don't.

As was reported in the original text, MQA is all about revenue generation, not high resolution music.
