Kind regards Morten

Many of us here believe that will never happen.....Devialet does not seem to be willing to work with companys from the outside and do we even know if it is possible to get the DAC in a Devialet MQA certified?

I doubt it too at least the certification part, because as much MQA may have value as a streaming protocol, the DAC certification part is just BS....

Views on MQA are getting very tribal I think.  Over the last month I have read stuff stating that MQA is the best thing ever and a revolution in audio sound quality reproduction.  I have also read that that MQA is nothing more that a way of extracting more cash from music lovers.  I have heard MQA in a demonstration, but never in my own system, so personally I have not made up my mind.  I think the reality is that the MQA bashers do have some good points, but also the mastering side of MQA and the ability to correct analogue to digital conversion errors in the original mastering do offer the potential for genuine improvements in sound quality.  So I think both tribal factions are wrong, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.  I have to say that I am looking forward to Roon implementing software decoding of MQA so I can try for myself.

I have heard MQA in my main system and I can say for certain that it sounds wonderful. It serves a purpose and that is to stream high resolution music without taking up too much bandwidth on a slow internet connection. This can only be a good thing. But as for paying for MQA downloads I dont think I will be doing that. I would download 128 or 256 DSD files instead if available.
