  • HiResAudio Drops MQA Encoded Downloads Due to Poor Sales

    From Digital Audio Review:

    Last but not least: we offer MQA since April 2016 with approx. 250 selected attractive audiophile recordings. But MQA does not reach more than 1% of the total turnover – also not with the back-catalog of 300 albums from Warner Music in January and February 2017 on board.”

    Wow what an abosolute honest person. Hiw I wish I heard of him sooner. Thanks for sharing.
    Using tidal and MQA is a blessing on most recordings. But if I buy it will be dsd only
    analog stuff.

      According to a post on the CA forum, Onkyo Music US has also dropped MQA from their music downloads store.

      Onkyo Music (in the US) had an MQA tab that also now seems to have disappeared.

        Wow them too. For me dsd is best for downloads
        steaming would be too. MQA is good but I don't need yet another format.
        I just spent the money to update my msb USB card for MQA while for now it's just dsd to 256. When new card is available it's free to update the card
        between that and the new firmware. I must say tidal be it server or umt plus is very good. It also not rivals my lampi dac in both pcm and dsd. Before the updates my lampi had surpassed the msb in all ways.
        analog stuff.
