    Perhaps MQA isn’t quite dead just yet...

    It's on topic if streaming MQA goes away because of Tidal where will they turn?

    RMAF 2019 Dates

    The fiesta is a stand alone event. Balloons , music, great food and chain saw sculpting who could ask for more?

    RMAF 2019 Dates

    New dates are in September this year. September 5th to 8th conveniently located only 7 miles from the Denver airport. And the Gaylord runs a shuttle every 20 minutes to a train station to get you back to civilization. I'm marked my calendar for the new dates.

    MQA is Vaporware

    Since my life now has an other person it space is an issue and I've never had a dedicated room for audio even when I had room. There was never any chance to have a dedicated room even when I could. Two large standard poodles and children don't allow for such things.

    I'm certainly OK with whatever kills off MQA. You almost make me wish I had room for such a system.

    Will Rafe Arnott of AudioStream allow my comment?

    Somebody though so they are a punk band.

    I have gentlemen's agreements with a couple industry people involving high-resolution audio not to say much more than "you will find high-resolution a very hard sell" if they don't go overboard supporting MQA. A we each stay in our own lanes kind of thing. So far the agreements are holding. So I delete references to high-resolution as a matter of course. In any case Tidal's HiFi subscriber base is so small that it doesn't matter. About 171,000 in 2017.

    It is I wonder if my post here impacted his decision? It is always better to have friends in medium places.

    Sorry there aren't enough subscribers to Tidal Masters for this to matter.

    The guy who makes AVTech Media work, Paul Miller isn't exactly an MQA supporter. 18 holes of golf is normally an excellent idea but its a little wet in Scottsdale. So for a couple of days a little work on my driver and 4 wood, send a putter head to be refinished and send another putter head to prepped for refinishing and drill a hole to move the center of gravity a bit toward the center of the face. If Rafe is broken then that should be documented.

    Is It Time For Moderators?

    Then consider this an invitation to join me at RMAF 2019. Now banished to the Gaylord Resort and Convention near the airport far away from civilization. I hear the hotel staff the Denver Tech Center Marriott is still celebrating that audiophiles will not be returning.

    The question is is cash actually flowing to MQA Ltd?

    All I read was the original files were one bit rate, DSD 64 converted to 24/352.8 DXD then processed as MQA files as 16/44.1 FLAC. Doesn't seem like an elegant process to me.

    From David's site. "Download the source DSD64 master as MQA encoded at the DXD bit rate 24/352.8kHz. Songs are MQA encoded as FLAC at 16/44.1. They can be played with sonic improvements on any CD or media player. Hi-res tracks will also be unfolded to their full resolution using an MQA compatible USB DAC."
