I agree that people should have a choice with material already in existence MQA or not and any other variation people wish to purchase. I expect people are familiar with and like what they are used to. MQA clearly changes something and some people don’t like it.

New material will be MQA if the producers wish it to be. Of course people will be able to release music in any guise they choose. If MQA becomes the ‘Original’ for new material then that is as valid as the sound of a 60’s single played on a Jukebox. It is what it is. I love a real Jukebox.....
Being as this situation will always be the way of things I just can’t understand the vitreol you find on forums. Luckily these forums have a self selecting audience and round in circles it goes.
The science will win out in the end but the debate will roll on.
The MQA I have heard sounds great undecoded and decoded to me, but I appreciate others see and hear things differently, there is nothing wrong with that.
I don’t think this thread is coming across as anti MQA at all.

Phew!

I think it has to be selective, I still think some albums sound amazing with MQA, just surprised some of the ones I preferred before, I now don't like as much, on the other system.

My thinking is, someone who has a bright system to start with, maybe Naim, might well find it too much.

The thing is, with us lot being Meridian, which is a pretty smooth, yet detailed, we probably like as clean a medium as we can possible get as it still never sounds bright or fatiguing.


No Darling, I've had it months!

Yes Guy, you pays your money and live with what you get.
I can understand the opinion of the creative Mr Lucey but he has chosen the "minority of one position" as he confirms (if I understand his comment correctly) he works 100% independently of others views. i.e. you will get what I give you and the result of any interference is not what I intended. Hmmm!
Interpret this as you will.

Consensus and much needed improvement will be hard to achieve with such polarised attitudes.

Long live Tidal and MQA. It works for me, just my POV
