  1. MQA is Vaporware

    That's not what I'm saying, but some could see MQA as the opportunity you describe.
  2. MQA is Vaporware

    I agree the differences in video are much easier to see, but if 1080p was delivered better, 99 percent of people wouldn't care about 4k.

    Not yet. Was at Dynaudio R&D today. Really cool.
  4. Article: SOtM sMS-200 Review

    Wish I could test it for you, but I don't have the SOtM product at home. On the SOtM there is a DAC status type of page. What does that say? Does it see your dac?

    Goodbye Peter.
  6. RMAF 2017 Reader Reports

    I agree, Constellation / Wilson was really good when I was there.

    That's what the machine on which you're typing is for. There's nothing I can provide in this area, that isn't available already.
  8. MQA is Vaporware

    I don't believe 4k video was something consumers asked for or need. I'm not sure it's actually that good for anyone other than those with giant screens who sit close, and the people selling goods. Lossless 1080p, which isn't sent into homes via streaming, satellite, or cable, would be better. When people see how good an over the air HD video looks compared to lossy 4k, they may think twice about 4k. The same can be said for great 44.1 versus high resolution and MQA.
  9. RMAF 2017 Reader Reports

    Back to RMAF talk. Sent from Denmark, where taxation is actually really high and quality of life is higher.

    Oh yes. It has been very neat. My sleeping pattern hasn't been neat, it's 2am here and I'm wide awake.

    It isn't a conspiracy for the same reasons 9/11 wasn't an inside job. The players involved aren't sophisticated enough to carry it out, without the plan leaking. The forceful support of MQA could be seen as an indication of how those totally on the bandwagon view the state of the industry. They see it as being in such bad shape that any new change nudging people to purchase new items or music or encourage more commerce, is seen as good. The efficacy of the change is beside the point, even if it's bad in the long run. The same group of audiophiles will buy new MQA DACs now and buy new non-mqa DACs when it disappears. The blind support could also be many other things with more innocent explanations or ignorant explanations or whatever.

    The mainstream audio press rejects all new formats until a superceding format is released, then the poo-pooing of the newer format starts and waxing poetic about the formerly bad format begins :~) They still talk about digital as if the problems of 1980 haven't been resolved. If a DAC is good, it's always described as having no digital glare and like analog. However, the flaws of analog are completely ignored in this context. MQA has been a different animal for them. Nothing but open arms and the savior for bad digital. I understand those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, but I'm just making an observation based on no data and using the feeling I get when reading the other guys. Subjective to the highest. Take it for what it's worth.
  13. Yggdrasil Glitch Fixed

    Not sure if the DSP chip was required to make the Gen 5 board work in the Yggy. Anyone else know?

    @PeterV and @FredericV any more posts about each other or going back and forth and your both banned.
  15. Can't edit my blog

    The time to edit a blog post should be longer than it is. I will look into this when I have a chance. I'm visiting Dynaudio here in Denmark. Cool stuff.
