How can a CD, MQA or otherwise, be ANYTHING ELSE than 16/44? 

It can't  so as I said, he lied, deliberately or otherwise. Mistaken = lying in my book.

The MQA fold is packed on the disc, and unfolded by an MQA DAC. Probably no different than the "enhanced CDs" of the 90s with multimedia content.

That was a year ago, March 2017.

 

 

Crap.  I thought it was March 17th.  My error.  I wonder when the second CD will be released?   :)

I want to see how they've allocated the bits in a 16-bit delivery format compared to the usual 24-bit. Something has to have been dropped.

No frigging kidding! :)  @mansr:This is the most polite I have seen you in a while!

 

If my MQA DAC says MQA on it, I know that it's even worse as some bandwidth must have been used to "turn the blue light on". Jeezus...

YOU are asking me to play nice, now THAT takes the cake.

He wasn't talking about nice,  but copyright. I play hard when someone is being deliberately obtuse or having asked a question refuses  the answer he gets.

If the MQA encoding requires 7-bits of a 24-bit file making the resulting MQA file 17-bit (assuming the same coding for CD) would that effectively make an MQA-CD 9-bit? Or am I dumb and not understanding this? 


I have dementia. I save all my posts in a text file I call Forums.  I do a search in that file to find out what I said or did in the past.

 

I still love music.

Nah, you would have seen it while trolling the MQA threads.

Nope. Only reason MQA keeps popping up on my radar is folks keep posting about it. I sure don’t go searching for articles on it.

The copyright claim with partial cut and paste, quotes, attribution, and link back is BS.  Fair Use. Look it up.

Right. Thanks for the laugh. You sure spend a lot time opening every thread...

To be honest much of it has become entertainment and my post was pretty sincere about directing me to that recording.

His only point, which I completely understand, is that he does not want to be harassed and threatened with petty claims.

You could have made your point about the original article with about 75% of your quote left out.  With the facts here CA is not being harassed because the copyright owners are exercising their legal rights.  You need to learn how to play nice.

....people can claim anything they want...so you are a copyright lawyer?

I love how JVS slips a burn to MQA skeptics in to the comments, writing, "...I would venture a guess that if they put "MQA" on the disc, only in Japan, where I am told that people are far more educated about and interested in MQA..." 

 

But seriously, this is what I've been afraid of. I'm not much of a streamer/downloader, but have been following MQA in fear that it would infect my physical media. Please no MQA vinyl, please.

Not only a swipe, but a misinformed one. "I am told"...." , this is  how a "journalist" posts? This is unheard of. He fabricates an MQA market in Japan. Streaming is a disaster in the Japanese music market, aside from YouTube.

 

Spotify, Deezer, etc have spent millions trying to break the market with very little success.

 

No Tidal customers in Japan, no MQA in Japan.

 Maybe these listeners in Japan are getting their MQA from e-onkyo music store

"" Japan is the world’s second largest market for recorded music sales worldwide. Music in MQA format is currently available in Japan on the e-onkyo music store, most notably recordings from acclaimed Japanese label UNAMAS and the entire catalogue of ‘Anime’ specialist label Falcom. Indie-oriented digital music service, Ototoy, has plans to offer MQA music later this year, including recordings from the Beagle Kick label. ""

One of the patents shows the lowest 3 bits of each 16 bit sample allocated to "folded" data. As Mansr pointed out, this number can vary.

There seems to be quite a bit of MQA for download in Japan, but I'd say that has nothing to do with the original statement about people being more educated in MQA. Interested, perhaps.
