    Capital Audiofest 2018

    I was asked to cover it by another publication but since I couldn't be bothered to walk four blocks to it when it was in Silver Spring Maryland wouldn't I be a hypocrite to get on a plane to cover it? I look forward to your reports.

    MQA The Truth lies Somewhere in the Middle

    Got to agree. From my post RMAF Seminar conversations and emails with Mike Jbara CEO of MQA Ltd the data they collect and use falls into just accounting stuff. Just to add a little horse's mouth verification.

    What is DRM?

    I'm not going to answer the question yet but my legal sources point to fifteen different categories of digital rights management in the United States.

    MQA The Truth lies Somewhere in the Middle

    MQA is probably going to a harder sell after RMAF thanks for taking a hit.

    MQA vs HiRez: an apples-to-apples comparison

    You got the same different sort of different that Kal Rubinson wrote about and I've found quite often.

    MQA The Truth lies Somewhere in the Middle

    When Ken Forsythe said we need to know your identity because you might be a competitor I knew had wrong-slotted (rally term) MQA Ltd. We could have great discussion about whether you are philosophical competitor or not but if they are looking at you then aren’t looking for real competitors.

    MQA The Truth lies Somewhere in the Middle

    It's called how to fool John Darko. Stems from his discussions of The Nightfly about a 2 dB difference in the versions and different masters as well.

    MQA is Vaporware

    Good to know. While discusiing financial information yesterday some information was given to me that I’m going to want a retraction. And you are still the man I’ll want it from.

    An Open Letter to "MQA Partners"

    The question then becomes did they still have to pay a hardware royalty to do this?

    MQA The Truth lies Somewhere in the Middle

    What an interesting idea. Would you want my accounting, computer and golf professional affiliations as well as audio? And what should I do with my membership in what you call the "We oppose MQA fraternity" hereafter referred to as The Fraternity?

    I had my blue laser pointer and a red one there was no reason to take it out at your presentation. I liked how you have used financial results to convince your "corporate masters" you are pursuing the correct long-term path for Stereophile. The same should apply MQA Ltd and its licenses in your magazine's content.

    MQA The Truth lies Somewhere in the Middle

    I enjoyed your presentation but you and I probably are more used to giving presentations and in my case used to anger and confusion. And of course I can replace my cute blue laser pointer with something that burns if necessary. But next month I get do some CLE and CPE that will be fun involving tax changes. Mark your calendars if it applies. As for Marjorie I'm sure she's hoping the elevators work next year at the Gaylord. It has enough floors to cause problems if they don't.

    MQA The Truth lies Somewhere in the Middle

    It is having an impact based on my conversations with people employed by MQA Ltd. Has it swayed the investors of MQA Ltd? They haven't put any money into the company since 2016. I'm interested in their new funding which is loans according to the 2017 financials but I'll watch and wait for information to be posted. CA is bigger than you think and what John Atkinson calls the we oppose MQA fraternity is starting to approach the size of LAOCAS and there are more people who aren't members that oppose MQA.
