    20 interesting facts about MQA

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects.../posts/2013309

    Mark Waldrep is apearently preparing a book ebook blueray thing about audio .
    It could be an interesting read in its entirety.

    Here are the excerpts about MQA facts as a teaser .

    We all know this but here it, is as a comprehensive listing .

    Personally i’m more interested in the rest of the book and I think we should be . Mark is very knowledgeable.

    And yes I used MQA in post as a shameless teaser as it is hot topic for some.

    So, someone needs to add a checksum field to flac headers and then you have "authenticated" audio of a higher standard in a smaller package..

    Hi Mnyb!

    I ordered a copy of Mark Waldrep's book & download files quite a while back following a recommendation on this forum & have been waiting patiently for them.

    It certainly looks like it's going to be worth the wait - he certainly shoots straight from the hip in the quoted extracts!

    However, I am saddened to hear of the health issues that his family are currently experiencing. Life is very cruel at times...

    The FLAC header already includes a MD5 checksum...

    I do have a whole bunch of AIX records they are truly amazingly recorded , recommend them .they are a large part of my DVDA collection . You can get most of them as downloads at itrax .

    They are truly hirez ( not that it matter that much ) ie their technical resolution goes beyond what could be stored on reeedbook .

    Apart from some old 70’s rock repacked in glorious 24/192 or whatnot at hdtracks , but really is more like 12/32 most of your bits are random noise .

    My pet bat, Biggles, will probably appreciate them - he's been getting rather down at night lately...

    Say hello from me

    I do know that 2ch hirez is rather pointless, but some are not even trying ( reselling the same stuff yet again ).

    I do miss the idea about true discrete 7 ch soround, that’s something else .
    Thats was also what AIX and some others tried to do . Done rigth itnade a real difference.
    Of course this fare is also aviable in the fake variety “remixeded” just like some mono records where processed for fake stereo way back ( before my time )
