  1. Given the lies told by MQA Ltd and it’s complete control over everything, many people don’t care how it sounds. They just don’t like it. On the other hand, making claims about how a format sounds is ridiculous. A dynamically compressed anything sounds like hell. A white gloved MQA album can sound spectacular. However, I’ll take a white glove pure PCM album so I can play it using the filter of my choice and use any DSP I want.
  2. That’s probably more of a psychological research project than anything. In addition, nobody knows the source masters and which few albums got the white glove treatment. Last, nothing MQA does requires MQA to make happen.
  3. For the same reason MP3 files sound better to some people. They just do.
  4. Control? Sure. Resell? No way. Labels know that ship has sailed.
  5. This whole people like MQA thing reminds me of the whole people like MP3 thing. https://www.macworld.co.uk/news/apple/ipod-generation-prefer-mp3-fidelity-cd-says-study-25288/
  6. Are you suggesting Austin is correct and people here are incorrect in challenging him? I don’t ever remember seeing measurements that contradict anything @mansr or @Archimago have done. If they existed I’m sure both of those guys would be interested in seeing them. MQA Ltd said MQA was lossless. It was proven to be a lie. The marketing was soon changed. I can’t imagine buying a car advertised as having 200 horsepower only to find out via a forum that it has 150. When asked, the manufacturer said it was perceptually 200 horsepower.
  7. The more you know, the more you know you don’t know. I wish it worked the same for those who know less.
  8. There are numerous USB to AES converters available. The best one I’ve used is the Berkeley Audio Design Alpha USB. Not many HiFi dealers carry any speakers like these. The exception is some may carry Kii.
  9. You’re the one who thought of it, so what does that say about you? don’t read between the lines of my writing. I’m not afraid to say what I mean, unlike the old guard.
  10. People still saying “Thank you sir, may I have another.” https://community.roonlabs.com/t/mqa-disappointing/44057/1932
