    Re: MQA Discussion

    I just think they are overwhelmed. The "roll-out" could have been a LOT better, BUT it's a whole lot better than not having done it, even the way they did.

    I don't even think about native DSD...

    Re: MQA Discussion

    I think if someone is not getting really great sound from even the first unfold/24/48 then something is going on with their system/connections/SW versions/???. When everything is set up properly MQA...

    Re: MQA Discussion

    My perception is that if you do NOT have an MQA DAC that but you play a MQA file from Tidal through any 24/96 DAC you are getting a file that was unfolded or SW decoded by Tidal. I use the terms...

    Re: MQA now on Tidal

    Yep, me too, I enjoy it now and have a hard time believing that even if it's not Tidal that there will not be some other form of streaming MQA files with MQA DACs. It's too good and too easy for it...

    Re: MQA Discussion

    I completely agree the Select makes pretty much anything you stick into it sound really good. Adding a little MQA flavor, even the SW decoded only and even through the Aurender at 24/48, takes it up...

    Re: MQA Discussion

    I love reading the articles/comments from companies or individuals that are not MQA supporters and all of their reasons while I am listening to an MQA album that is screaming good. It's makes you...

    Re: MQA now on Tidal

    I have my Aurender N10 or W20, my MSB Select II DAC, which I am also using as a preamp, into either Vitus or Goldmund amps. I have 10 sets of speakers to choose depending on my mood or what's going...

    Re: MQA now on Tidal

    Jim, I don't have an "option" for MQA on the music that I want to listen to. None of the may 20-30 albums that I normally listen to not to mention 2-3 new albums that I seem to run into every week,...

    Re: MQA now on Tidal

    Jack,

    To close the loop, after I drove myself crazy trying to connect my pc to my MSB dac, it was never going to happen until Tidal finally added the MSB dac to their list of supported DACs. Once...

    Hello Jack,

    Re: MQA what's the big deal?

    Understood, just saying that all of these new hi-rez formats sound pretty darn good and the "better" thing is really personal preference.

    Re: MQA what's the big deal?

    In my listening experience and imho native DSD does NOT sound "better"(hate this word) than fully HW decoded MQA......they both sound REALLY GOOD and it might come down to personal opinion and on a...

    Another "hierarchy" relationship for me regarding vinyl, R2R, DSD, CD and MQA SW decoded, MQA HW decoded in my system(s) and to my personal preferences are:

    A different twist to my MQA equation- So I was totally smitten by the sound of MQA in my set up. Went through the several iterations, SW decoded, HW decoded, back to SW decoded waiting for my MQA...

    Looks like Lumin has their act together with MQA. Btw, Fransciso you have a GREAT system, I'm sure the MQA sound great on it. Love the Atrias....nice.
