    I'm sorry, it's a subjective and unfair assessment, but I can't help to feel like you're troll baiting me.
     
     indeed the Ayre guys are a good deal more professional and honest than the marketing guys of the pono campaign, so a DAP that actually works came out of the all mess. I would argue about the stability into low impedance loads, or the roll off at 16/44, but other DAPs have such behaviors so it's nothing special.  it's great if you enjoy your DAP.

    This indeed the Pono claim somewhere in 2014.
    My guesswork is that as Pono was teaming up with Meridian at that time, the revolutionary new format Young was talking about is probably what we know today as MQA.
    As Pono and Meridian split for reasons best known to them,  Pono ended up using plain PCM.
     
    At the moment the Pono shop is closed, some speculate they might re-open selling MQA!
