    You can tell when the list was last updated by the 3rd line in the file. Example of the first few lines of the link I posted is below.

    I now realize that I can't rely on just what Tidal posts in their "Masters" list.

    Onkyo music is selling quite a few of the new rush MQA /flac files. Also Led Zeppelin and Alice cooper.
    I bought a couple the other day. . So there is more and more popular music being released every day.

    Re: MQA Discussion

    I am greatly enjoying MQA files from Tidal through my Roon software, Nucleus Plus and Select II DAC. Most files are significantly better than their Redbook counterpart. I don’t fret whether or not the MQA files on Tidal are better than their High Res. equivalent. I just treat MQA as Tidal’s version of High Res. and all is well.

    Looks like you put the money in the digital component where it really matters: the DAC. Congratulations!

    Re: MQA Discussion

    The recent David Bowie "Live at Glastonbury 2000" hi-res files from Qobuz appear to play back as MQA on my Oppo 205? I've heard there is some discussion about this at the Roon forums. can anyone here enlighten me?

    Re: MQA Discussion

    Yes I found it. There are two versions on Tidal. A CD quality 16/44.1 and a MQA 24/48.

    Re: MQA Discussion

    my question related more to discussions at Roon about the Qobuz download, which is described only as "24-48 hi-res", no mention of MQA.
