    Mostly likely no one except for the writers and editors at all the high end audio magazines. Just remember that MQA + The Audioquest Jitterbug + The Magic Clock is a match made in heaven.

    MQA: A Review of controversies, concerns, and cautions

    Over time, as we know more about it, the more it is clear that it was always to serve the interests of the Industry... As suspected for the longest time.

    An excellent, well-reasoned article, and even quite a few rational comments.

    What about all the recordings that mastered <=48kHz ( 99% )

    “They” want MQA encode every old record as usual and resell to us again.

    Even if this process worked it could only be aplied to these select 24/192 DXD DSD master that do exist.
    And the legacy recordings should be left alone .

    Same patterns as with SACD and DVDA where atleast 50% of the releases where not hirez in any way.

    Nice work Archimago but you do realize that you have foregone any chance at getting the "loaner" pair of top of the line Magico speakers. Honesty has its price just as dishonesty has its rewards.
