RE: Linn's take on MQA, "rentier capitalism".

I first heard about MQA like...two months ago or something. I watched the video Meridian put together for it.

I was right with the guy about why they needed to do it; then he lost me as soon as he said how they did it.

This is just yet another proprietary solution to a problem that may or may not exist for most people. I'm not fully buying in to the pseudo-SBA they're trying to pull anyway.

If I want high-resolution; I'll just get high resolution. My bandwidth and storage space gives me zero reason to use something like this. But more importantly; I don't have the ability to play around with it. It's either built in to software modules (Tidal) or in to hardware. If I can't do actual comparisons on my PC...where I can take my existing HD content, encode it to MQA, then decode it for analysis in my DAW...nope. I will just assume it doesn't work and is bogus.
