  1. MQA Blind Test Summary & Summary Comments...

    It's a great mid-fi dac!
  2. https://tidal.com/album/74836663 Exciting new music based on the writings of Fernando Pessoa heteronym "Alexander Search".
  3. You are right, in my view. As soon as I heard this new album, it immediately sounded like the much darker "the final cut". Musically and soudwise. Mr. Waters stayed in the 80's, which is not bad, it was a great time....

    what a wonderful room! Love it!
  5. DACs: Down to Four Choices

    Don't bother. Does not sound good (agressive, lacks refinement). Better look elsewere... anyway, listen and decide...
  6. Of course. I love krall's timbre, but what annoys me is what she does with it: no variations, no excitement, just plain boring...imho.

    Thanks. As much as I would love living in Canada (beautiful country), I live in Portugal. I will check here...

    I am tempted to simplify my life but I am more excited on the Kii 3. However, given your feedback I am surely open now to the idea of test drive the little KEF's.
  9. HIGHRESAUDIO to stop offering MQA......

    If I understood correctly what is driving DSD sales...at least from the testimonials on CA: - either people look for native DSD files (on albuns that are direct recording to DSD, like http://www.nativedsd.com) - or people are doing offline upsampling to DSD to use the "sweet spot" on certain DAC's. Where does MQA cannibalize sales in this scenario?
  10. if you like B&W you could try to find the famous Signature Diamond...in used. B&W Signature Diamond Loudspeakers Reviewed Most people don't like the design. I love it! They provided an holographic presentation of a jazz piano trio. I never forgot that.
  11. HIGHRESAUDIO to stop offering MQA......

    Well, they have to be very careful with what they write...
  12. HIGHRESAUDIO to stop offering MQA......

    Too many fake news lately, that is fact. Curiously linked to real leaks. But this is not one of those fake news!
  13. HIGHRESAUDIO to stop offering MQA......

    It makes no sense to compare Warner and Universal (editors of music and owners of the music) with an online retailer...who apparently were misled by MQA on a number of important factors. You instead should be thankful that a retailer is worried about how to control the quality of what is being sold...others just don't care and just sell what is being dropped on their sites. The great jumps in quality (almost) never come from the big companies. In Hi-end all major players come from small companies, sometimes from the effort of single people, sometimes from the join forces of small team of experts. Why should we trust the bigger companies that have mainly eyes on profit? Which in music means recycling: Re-pack, re-format, resell, re-brand, the same music, over and over again. Sometime in the future I want to try DSD...
  14. HIGHRESAUDIO to stop offering MQA......

    Already bought Hi-rez from them...
  15. MQA and DRM

    It's not working that way with Tidal. On the high quality side, they store at least two versions, MQA and non-MQA...
