Is Tidal the only MQA game in town? If the reports in the news today (5/16) are true, Tidal will either need some more capital investors, raise rates or fold if it can't sell to another bidder. Maybe we have another betamax war, sure it might be better than VHS, but only the minority will pay more. MP3s, HDCD, SACD, divx, dvd-a, hd-dvd, minidisc, Thunderbolt, RDRAM all have a lot in common with MQA when it comes to licensing costs, either they are overlooked, become free or something faster and with higher bit rate will replace it. The one big problem that MQA has against it is the bit rate... oh i guess there's two, lack of support for existing devices without quality loss... maybe three, key manufactures are against it....i can careless about audioquest. oh maybe four, the MQA library on Tidal is worthless for any rock from the last two decades. The only sustaining force seems to be stereophile and i'm not even sure why they care so much.
