MQA Is Made For Apple
People has stopped listening to music.
Everybody who asks me for audiophile advice, this is often the first thing i told them - do not break down music into simpler components. Examples, do not break down music into bands of bass, mid-range and treble. Do not break down music into artificial frameworks like lossless or lossy. Likewise, do not break down music into MQA and non-MQA.
Music has to be felt. You have to learn to let music carry your emotions and bring it for a roller coaster ride.
Because MQA is so tied to the equipment, it’s a classic case of ‘audiophiles listening to the equipment’. However, if you can, forget about the equipment.
People do not seem listen to the music when it comes to MQA. Right now the patents of MQA garners far more interest (and negativity) than the music itself. MQA for better or worse, is more successful as controversy and click-bait than a music codec.
People in general are very negative about MQA, and they are finding tons and tons of articles on the Internet to support this stand. MQA itself has turned into a distraction, the music seems secondary.
Why are audiophiles so negative though towards MQA though?
