    If it’s something I’d need to pay for, I’m honestly not interested. I have 12TB of storage on my NAS and another 8TB on my Aurender. I’d rather see more mainstream artists DSD hit the market than MQA.

    Last week they told me there WOULD be an upgrade coming to the Grandioso K1 for MQA.

    Interesting. If itís firmware I can easily install, at no cost, Iím game.

    Sending in gear for upgrades never seems to happen. Iíve been planning to send in my SP3 for the 4K upgrade for months.

    N-01 is getting MQA for sure. For K1, since it does not have the N-01 network board where MQA decoding is done, at this point I cannot see how K1 can decode MQA.

    I just read this,Dec 1st, 2017; noting that the K1 would require a redesign " Esoteric states that including MQA in its disc players would require a complete redesign of their DAC sections, and that they’re considering its feasibility. They do plan to add MQA to their N-05 network audio player."
