Most of the albums were Warner albums bought from Highresaudio. Maybe my experience was the reason why Highresaudio stopped selling theese MQA-albums. The PCM-files were bought long ago.

Is the 218 capable of handling/processing/decoding DSD files or is that capability still limited to the 818v3/808v6/UltraDAC devices?


Various DSP speakers and Meridian processors

It's not. The other devices you list only handle DSD through their USB input, which the 218 unfortunately doesn't have.
