What happen to MQA on Tidal?

After listening to Tidal only on my phone the last few weeks, I went to stream on my home system but soon realized all my MQA tracks were no longer showing up and the MQA parameters were absent in my streaming settings.  I see Tidal is in "administration" (Chapter 11???).   One of the main reasons I subscribed to Tidal was MQA and purchased a DAC that could decode the format.   I think I should have at least been informed by Tidal if it was cancelling MQA.  Any thoughts? 

I know a lot of people hate (hated) MQA, but like any format I have listened to (Vinyl, CD, SACD, FLAC, MQA, etc.) , some things sound great and others on a plain old red book CD sounds better. 


It's so good that they even make some 44.1 streams MQA 44.1 streams, so that it has to go through an extra chip that they claim makes it sound just like the original 44.1 track did.

Next, they'll say that men are cheaper than women, and you should try them out, too, so that they can save money, while charging you double anyhow.

Sorry, just remember what it stands for, apologies for the way they must be looking at everyone else after that. All you can really do is warn people that they’re dead for crap like that. That’s probably why they approached Jay-Z about it in the first place. Because you wouldn’t believe how dead you should be if you not only expect someone with a 10k DAC they love to replace it with the next year’s same model except with an extra chip in it, to be able to play files that they say sound the same as higher res, but don’t require more than 44.1khz bandwidth, even though Tidal still charges you double the price for the higher tier after all. Nobody else is charging more for higher res yet. Qobuz is $14 instead of $10 here, but they also have the best sounding default player. Of course, nobody else messes with what they say they’re actually selling you.

The guy with the Q ideas probably thought that Jay-z was the right guy to approach with the idea, because since he was a drug dealer before being a rapper, if he ever found out about it, he’d just have to go along with it because of that.

Compression is dead for it.  If streaming players ever start downloading in advance, decompressing the file onto a local hard drive, then playing that, people will start falling asleep while listening, compared to FLAC etc.  Adding an extra chip is really bad news for an audio signal.  Ha, they even said the first 'unfold' already happened on the cpu, which would be a much noisier chip than a dedicated one, which followed, already.

Yeah Randyhat, I just listen to what sounds good to me. But live and let live, if someone gets their panties bunched up by MQA and doesn't like it, so be it.
