"The gullibility of audiophiles is what astonishes me the most, even after all these years. How is it possible, how did it ever happen, that they trust fairy-tale purveyors and mystic gurus more than reliable sources of scientific information?"

Were they inspired by MQA?


"malware operators are experimenting with using WAV audio files to hide malicious code"

https://it.slashdot.org/story/19/10/20/200249/wav-audio-files-are-now-being-used-to-hide-malicious-code


MQA also hides crypto DRM data inside WAV files, then compressed as flac encoded distribution files - for which the flac encoder has a hard job as it's non-audio data. This data is only available to be decoded by licensed decoders.

 


So if a WAV file does not compress well with flac, it's either an MQA file or one of these crooks spreading malware .... ;)

Replace “this thread”with MQA and it’s perfect. 

Content on MQA doesn't improve? Doesn't quite make sense but I know her you're coming from...zz

Content on this thread doesn’t improve. Keep it going though.... by any means possible. 

 

I might be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure your subjective estimation of the quality of content in this thread is utterly irrelevant.

It doesn't add up

 

It obviously does. I think "hanging out" isn't a good description, I just "pop in" to see if there is anything new and what sort of stuff the gang are going on about to keep the topic interesting.

 

"All things Bob Stuart" is another poor term, I suppose it's meant to be a sort of insult. Meridian make some good gear, you'll never know about it, you simply dislike by association. Nobody is interested in me anyway, I'm not interesting.

 

I'm not really bothered about MQA. Other motivations exist in life...

Deflection and dissembling

Not a lot to deflect from. Dissembling, well if it makes you happy...

I don't consider your following post to be just popping in

No indeed, that's a comment, popping in means clicking on a button and reading content. Not sure what your point is?

Barrowboy, are you upset that you were conned, or are you upset that the con you fell for was exposed?  Oh wait, that's the same thing.

 

Who knew Audio Stockholm Syndrome was actually a thing...


Hey MQA, if it is not all $voodoo$, show us the math!

No, not upset? Quite happy!
