About those Dragonfly DACs...

Guys, this is where a little research into the Dragonfly DACs could be helpful. Remember that the Dragonfly Red and Black DACs are using a Microchip PIC32MX processor inside.

There is not enough horsepower for much processing. This is why it depends on software decode in TIDAL on your computer. At best, I suspect the device will just detect an MQA stream and plug in some custom parameters for the filter on the DAC chip. No fancy further unfolding to 192kHz since there's just not enough processor cycles...

No surprise they're taking their time. We shall see, but I very much suspect the difference in sound will be essentially placebo.
