MQA: the end of a weird idea which solved a non existing problem - lyapounov - 07-04-2023 12:17

I always thought MQA was a very bad idea.

I could even say it was some sort of crookery, as it was not clear if it was truely lossless. They pretend it was, but some reverse engineering showed it was not (cf. https://goldensound.audio/2021/11/29/tidal-hifi-is-not-lossless/)

Tidal used it, but Qobuz never.

Well, it looks now like the end of it:

I can only hope they don’t come out of administration

Thanks for the link

Sadly they might find a buyer who smells all that licensing money AND is gullible enough to drink up the MQA "cool-aid"
