MQA gone shy?

    It's the time of year that MQA publish their accounts and tell their shareholders about how they are going to take over the world by getting the major labels to use their folding for HD audio - and people will pay for it, eventually.

    Unfortunately the major labels have decided that normal HD PCM is really rather good and Amazon is the place to sell it.

    And total silence from MQA, their accounts filling has a nasty red overdue banner like one of those letters from the tax man. A "going concern" issue, perhaps?

    I have a suspicion that people who have paid for MQA media will no longer be able to play it at full resolution as DACs fail, just like happened to HDCD

    Fortunately, the encoding details for HDCD found their way into the open and thus software decoding is now possible. Too soon to know if or when MQA will do the same, or if it is worth the bother. And people are still releasing HDCD players even though it is now out of copyright protection.

    At present I'm not too fussed that MQA may be late filing. That's quite common for UK companies, despite being a legal requirement.
