Re: Music on Tidal to test MQA - MQA Review

Wow. That was very interesting. I would say that if it is all true (and it looks like it is) the whole MQA is biggest audio BS of a decade... That it is far from perfect I knew I use tidal and some of my old CD rips sounded better than master MQA version from Tidal But I did not expect that their &...

Re: Hallelujah John Darko

I agree with a lot of what he is saying with exception of his statement: "I know that 8k streamer will sound better than 1k streamer" ( I would not have a problem if he just said "is better" as better is hard to define but he said "sounds better"...) unfortunately with ...

We can supply any SA pot in range from 10k to 250k - Job is the same so are the costs of parts ( down to couple of pounds ) so the cost of upgrade is the same. As Paul mention it would be bespoke item.
