    DAC Recommendations. MQA or not?

    Old thread? I wasn't the one 'speculating' !! The person who did , didn't offer any 'evidence'. I just asked "who" !! BTW, I'm not gifted enough to understand the 'tech' bits, I just like what I hear, which is no relevance to you as we don't know each other. However, the original question...
