    slight change, but interesting --- hmm, what does it portend?

    Thank you for your reply.
     
    I was listening last night to Glenn Hansard's album, Rhythm and Repose, the MQA version (TIDAL really needs to add a directory for MQA albums as well as an easy way to identify them in a listing), and as soon as it began I could tell how much better the upper frequencies sounded; it's more noticeable, in my opinion, than the difference between Redbook and Hi Rez in most cases. My plan is to buy a Hugo 2, but the notion of an add-on, although an excellent idea, doesn't appeal to my simplicity sensibilities.
     
    I do wonder, since Chord uses proprietary DAC technology, whether intellectual property is an issue for them in adoption. I'm not clear what MQA requires of the manufacturer in regards to DAC technology.

    I'm sure this enabled Chord to save money in manufacturing, not a bad thing at all as long as the design is not compromised.

    No they are programmed by a tiny bed of nails connector these are sprung brass and gold contact points aligned and held in place by a small clamp it's all a very normal procedure

    Hey Grumpy, can you confirm whether the nature of balanced drive inherently doubles the impedance spec of any IEM/headphone connected to it?

    I don't understand the question.

    For me there is no issue in my readiness to acquire IP to put into my designs; if I hear a technology that genuinely improves performance and musicality then I would be first in the line to use it, and go to any lengths to get it to perform at it's best.

    I foresee a poly 2 with built-in MQA to PCM decoder.

    Thanks, Rob, for your reply.
     
    Will we have to wait for the Mojo 2 to see MQA compatibility or will there be some way to update the existing Mojo?

    I'm getting used to the audio delay on win10, no matter what I do, audio delay is there
