  1. I think the Japanese like formats, it was one of Bob’s earliest ventures in selling MQA and getting them on board with the tech but it’s stalling no doubt not seen many new releases of late
  2. Let’s hope your right, but the train is still not off the rails and has gathered speed again with no sign of stopping at the moment, will be interested to see what the next filed accounts look like
  3. I am not aware of this ever been released in 24 bit commercially, the closest 24bit would the DVD audio layer which no doubt if extracted would be 24/48
  4. Was this an early format name for MQA, it doesn't roll off the tongue as well though.....lol "DOUBLY COMPATIBLE LOSSLESS AUDIO BANDWIDTH EXTENSION" https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=WO2013186561&recNum=132&maxRec=599628&office=&prevFilter=&sortOption=&queryString=nano+OR+filter+OR+ceramic&tab=PCT+Biblio
  5. The Carpenters is an album from the universal company stable this is a master but if I select Hifi, IE no interest in MQA I get the PCM 44.1 file not the 24/48 base MQA file I will check a Warner’s tonight for you
  6. The same test done with a Universal owned album, the MASTER plays MQA wind it down to HIFI and we get PCM 44.1 at the moment
  7. Dug out my Pro-Ject S2 DAC to check the Tidal files since the Warner update and I can confirm If you wind down a 16/44.1 MASTER to HIFI you still get the same MQA file regardless of your settings so standard DAC’s will go into digital limp mode Warner’s file
  8. Found this article from Oct 2020 in Australia, Bob intimates what’s just happened and the future https://www.stereo.net.au/features/inside-track-bob-stuart-mqa “let’s make a standard”
  9. It’s beginning to sound like a chapter from hitchhikers guide to the galaxy that was fiction too 🤪
  10. And most listeners a) won’t notice it’s changed sonically b) but if told they have been changed will suddenly say they are all sounding better
  11. This section may becoming a reality looking at Warner’s latest work
  12. And where are there going to hide that one they are going to have to move to 32bit lol
  13. Who would want to buy them again 13 bit with DRM
