    Clearly something each listener will have to decide for him/herself. So far, the opinions of internet posters (and especialy audio reviewers) who have spent time listening to both MQA and hi-res PCM have been overwhelmingly in favor of MQA.

    Depends on who you talk to.
    One well known producer and recording engineer, after hearing MQA, told me "I don't want MQA mucking around with my audio."

    what I will watch for is the contrast between what MQA does when optimized, and what HQ Player does when optimized. since HQ Player improves all digital formats and resolutions, and is helpful to dsd, I see it as being potentially more helpful to the highest performance listeners. maybe if you are a streaming fan mostly focused on redbook level music streaming listening, MQA might be more relevant.

    these are just my views based on a limited understanding of MQA, but enjoying the lift of the SGM music server with a hot rodded HQ Player. I have more high rez PCM and dsd than redbook and streaming Tidal is not currently a main focus. and currently produced music is a small part of my daily listening. and I don't need an easy delivery system with 15 terabytes of music already on my server.

    No it doesn't. I wasn't expressing my opinion, merely an undeniable fact. Compare the number of people posting positively about MQA with those who post negatively. Especially among audio reviewers, it's remarkably one-sided. That doesn't mean that MQA sounds better.
