  1. I’m not sure how you came up with the idea that I was trying to score some point against you. In previous posts you said Tim Cook would be forced to accept MQA. You said Jack Dorsey would not. I asked you why the difference between the two. No points to be scored. Not looking for vindication. It’s been clear for some time in your response to posts of mine that I’ve pissed you off somehow but that certainly hasn’t been my intention.
  2. When Tim Cook took over Apple it was worth just under $400 Billion and now it’s only worth $2 Trillion+. What a failure. Couldn’t lead his way out of a paper bag.
  3. When I posted the EXACT same sentiment about Tim Cook your response was Warner’s was going to tell him what he was going to take and he would have to like it or lump it. I’m pretty sure Tim is as big a dog as Jack is so what would be different in this case?
  4. Thanks, not sure why my search didn’t come up with his user name. As a subscriber to TAS for more than 40 years it’s difficult to express how disappointed I am to learn about this. My equipment buying days are pretty much over so I’ve been able to ignore the more over the top reviews of the “next new thing” including MQA but I look forward to the music reviews. More and more of that is online however so after four decades I guess it’s time to move on. Thanks again for the heads up.
  5. Do you have a link? I googled Lee Scoggins Twitter and came up with zip.
  6. I assume everyone wants the best sound and will purchase the Supreme. Only $5,600. https://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/spearheading-in-musical-delight-the-new-rezonator-from-ansuz-acoustics
  7. I have absolutely no idea if they are or not. My question was directed at someone within the industry who I thought might have actual knowledge of the subject, not you.
  8. Chris, you seem to have “inside the industry” information that some of the rest of us don’t have access to. Do you actually know that none of the studios are archiving in MQA or does it just seem logical that they aren’t?
  9. Thanks so much for the heads up on these two albums. It only took 4 days from ordering them from CD Japan to receiving them. I ripped them both and listened to them enough to make sure that everything was OK but didn't have much time to concentrate on the music yet. My initial impression of both them is very favorable, however. Thanks again.
  10. That’s not been their business model so far. They have very specific requirements for how music is to be provided to them. They’re a big enough customer they can stipulate the terms of the sale. Just like Walmart tells the farmers that provide them with produce what they’ll grow, how it will be packaged, how it will be delivered and what they can charge for it. Don’t like the terms? Sell somewhere else. https://www.apple.com/itunes/docs/apple-digital-masters.pdf
  11. I disagree. On their website, Apple claims they stream billions of songs to their various devices per day. Warner is going to kiss that off and count on a niche company like Tidal to keep them afloat? In any event, Warner’s is currently worth around 15 Billion and Apple is worth around 1.3 Trillion. If Tim Cook wants the Warner’s catalog without MQA he could buy them with the money he keeps in his sock drawer.
  12. Turn it around. What’s Warner’s leverage? None of their music on Apple Music?
  13. I’d sure like to be in the room when some suit from Warner’s tells Tim Cook what format music Apple is going to stream.
  14. This is going to sound kind of newbie but I spent some time with Google and couldn’t come up with an answer. Any suggestions on where to buy them? Thanks.
