andrewc had been a bully here long enough:say that to my face, you punk(andrewc)?
or a better proposition, I'm willing to pay 50000(cost of venue, ensemble, experts to fly here: I remember Fremer a wreck among recording engineers. Then final collation through a consensus of people in my panel, and people in your panel. Then the prognosis goes out to people who can define sound)

i am a big fan of meridian. G08 and 808 cd players are great products. i was user of 808 for a while.

but as a matter of fact, we all know boss of meridian tried very hard on promoting dvd-audio format (24/192 audio file on DVD) and he FAILED...  and i am pretty sure mqa will FAIL too!

we do NOT need another compressed audio format:

when u are in office using lan you do NOT need compressed audio format ...

when u are outside using 4g (soon will be 5G) you do NOT need  compressed audio format ...

when u are at home using wifi you do NOT need compressed audio format ...

First they tried to hide the fact that MQA is lossy... Then they claimed that the lossy "folds" are in the barely audible frequency range... Now they're trying to claim its about protecting the Studio's IPR... WTF. And to top if off, Stereophile is totally complicit in all this B.S from MQA. >:(
