  1. I do believe as a manufacturer You should back each and every part of Your product. If You include MQA, that's an endorsement. As a constructor/manufacturer You are informed by MQA what that entails. In the case of ELAC (for instance) the information about the ills was available when the DDP-2 was under construction. I have talked to a lot of manufacturers whose product i liked but that included MQA, almost all of them had included MQA because it was the latest buzzword. A lot of them don't even understand how MQA works (or the implications of this) So the manufacturers just included it to have another thing on the checklist. When I buy from a manufacturer, I don't want buzzwords or "features" that have been proven to not do anything (good) for the sound And I will not support anyone that endorse MQA
  2. It's about the signal that ELAC sends as a company, by including it in their product they are endorsing all the ills that MQA is. One way to rid the world of this illness, is letting manufacturers know that any association with a company that has been shown to have a strange take on the truth, looses them sales.
  3. Well I basically do not trust ANY company trying to push MQA. So this company is of the list
  4. Currently looking into reporting MQA to the Danish Ombudsmand. This from the forbrugerombudsmanden.dk website Claims must be documented Companies must be able to provide evidence of the claims they use in marketing their goods or services. It is a good idea to have the documentation ready when the marketing starts. It is a requirement that companies can document the claims they use about their goods or services in advertising and other marketing. It must be proved if a company, for example, claims that a watch is waterproof or a car wash can prevent rust. When the company begins to market the product or service, the company must have certain knowledge that it can provide evidence of the claim. The documentation must be available at all times if it becomes necessary to document the claim.Therefore, it may be a good idea that the company has obtained the documentation already when the marketing of the product or service begins. WHAT IS SUFFICIENT DOCUMENTATION? What the documentation should contain depends on the claim used to market the product or service. The claim does not necessarily have to be scientifically proven, but the requirements for the documentation are high. For example, if a company markets itself with the fact that it is cheapest, it must be possible to document that the claim is based on a representative and relevant comparison. If the company cannot provide evidence of the claim, the claim will be considered to be in violation of the Marketing Law's requirement that information in advertising and other marketing must not be incorrect or misleading. The way I see it this will be a hard sell for MQA and will be implemented all over the EU, anyone up for collecting documentation against MQA's claims ?
  5. Can you inform us about a new release date? +1
  6. Followed the link "Still have questions? Read the FAQ at Beats Music" on apple.com/music/membership/ ended up getting the info on the Beats FAQ. There's no way they are changing that. iTunes has never been about quality merely convenience
  7. On the web sadly 320 kps MP3 (why mp3???) or a few 256 kps on cellular 64 kps
  8. Thanks Stephen for clearing that up, it seems I need to retire the old G5. Looking forward to hearing the improvement in sound quality when upgrading from Play.
  9. Using a fairly old iMac G5 (last one before Intel) it crashes everytime. It gets unresponsive and the fan spins up. Anyone else experiencing this?
