Yes, if there's bad power you might hear a bigger difference. Especially in old buildings.

In the light of the Meridian MQA announcement there has been some good news for us Meridian Prime Users. The Prime is also ready for MQA. That's why the fourth "currently unused" LED (right after 4x) is installed.

They do a good job of hyping MQA up, but these days it seems irrelevant. It would have been very useful about 4+ years ago, but now storage is cheap.

Ok, what does MQA do that hi res files do not?

Timing
post #249 of 253
Yes, and as far I understand to be able to stream/reproduce the "Original Master file" "lossless".

But we have to wait for January and CES for more information

"Timing"

 

To think, that users of hi res audio have been subjected to useless timing all these years. It's a criminal travesty! Thank heavens for Meridian for re setting our clocks, so we can finally hear the right thing at the right time. Please, where can I get some of this MQA stuff?

I think MQA mastered albums will be released in early 2015 but you need dacs than can decode MQA (such as Explorer2 or Prime) for that. HA-1 can't do that.

Meridian is the one who's timing is off. As far as I am concerned MQA is already obsolete and I am not interested. They can keep it.
