    This is my thought as well. Older recordings are being digitized under the watchful eye of the artist/label and offered at whatever bitrate the original digital file was created.

    Phil,

    Andy is bringing over his Mytek DAC today so we can listen to the HW encoded MQA files....at least I was happy for 24 hours with the 24/96.....that will probably be history as were 16/44.1 and 24/48 in just a few days.....traveling at the speed of light, which actually is very amazing!

    Yes, looking forward to it. I tried and tried last night to go back and enjoy the 24/48 tracks and the 24/96 are a different ballgame....no going back.

    Bob,

    Isn't it amazing that once you (me too) realize how good the Tidal desktop unfolded MQA files sound at 24/96, the lesser resolutions don't sound so good anymore. I am a little flabbergasted at what I am hearing and can not wait until I get/update to a true hardware MQA dac. Life it good!

    I agree Joe, I'm sort of stunned by it all. I'm afraid to to hear the hw decoded version today. Agreed, Life is good!!!

    Where does one find the new MQA Tidal content? I open up "What's New" on Tidal and don't see it there. In the search engine typing in MQA only brings up MQA Music Videos. I opened up a header named Exclusive thinking they might be there....nada....

    Make sure you have the latest version of the desktop app installed. On the What's new tab, under albums, you should see a category called Masters. Those are the droids...er albums... you're looking for
