    MQA is apparently a hoax

    This has got to be the most convincing video showing that MQA is truly “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, a hoax. I hope Deezer sticks with flac and do not force MQA on us like Tidal does.

    Yep - that's why I've dumped Tidal and gone Qobuz - nice, plain FLAC.

    MQA have replied to this, so make sure you listen to their reply as well before you make up your mind.

    But i really have to respect the energy how coordinated MQA shills still spread the nonsense about lazy filtering and lousy upsampling is superiour because Bob says so.
    The climax obviously are MQA CDs
    Transporter (modded) -> RG142 -> Avantgarde Acoustic based 500VA monoblocks -> Sommer SPK240 -> self-made speakers

    I think with the advent of HiRes FLAC streaming MQA is a solution without a problem

    How one wonders? There isn’t that much pre encoded stuff available is there? Is it the same playlist as main mix?
