  1. AFAIK, Oohashi's papers have not been generally accepted by the biology community.
  2. Yes, my experience began with my PS3s and there was no reason to change (and fumble with dangling drives) when I moved to the the Oppos.
  3. Of course, by definition, ultrasonic frequencies cannot be perceived as sound.
  4. I started ripping over the LAN and I stopped ripping to a USB drive when I discovered that 4GB is close to typical in my collection. Half of my rips required concatenation and that is a pain-in-the-neck.
  5. I've stopped going to shows for the demos which are becoming increasingly irrelevant for these and other reasons. I go to discover and see new stuff and to talk with people.
  6. Well, that is a the issue if there is no special USB driver.
  7. Dunno yet but hope to soon. Also, it has a volume control knob! So does the new e38.
  8. Please note the linked follow-up: https://www.stereophile.com/content/music-round-84-multichannel-mqa-multichannel-mqa-again
  9. Why need they be processed any differently from the L/R pair of channels?
  10. Sure. They were either 4.0 (from some old sources) or 5.1 (6).
  11. OK. I was presuming how MQA data is embedded in stereo files. Still, if that's how its done for stereo, it is likely the same is done for multichannel and, to be honest, it is likely that only Bob Stuart knows for sure. But, since multichannel PCM is sorted out in pairs without MQA, having MQA data should not make any difference. I handled those files as I have all multichannel files with many DACs. Added in edit: I found a metadata tag on one of the 4.0 tracks: "6ch MQA as pairs L R 0 0 Ls Rs." I also found there were channel test tracks provided.
  12. MQA data is always buried in each channel of the PCM and, regardless of whether it is stereo or multichannel.
