.... Mqa is one of the reasons I bought this DAC.
We don't want to get into the MQA debate so please take my comment as purely from engineering standpoint.
What we learned during the implementation of MQA is that a newer XMOS USB communication chip does the so called MQA unfolding (lets just call it decoding). I have done all sorts of programming in my early career from CPU level assembly code, firmware, C++, Java and client scripts. So, is there any difference between doing the decoding by the player on the computer versus on the USB chip ? I don't think so.
I will like you to compare decoding MQA from the computer versus decoding on Evo DAC whether you can hear any difference. My point is that if you like the sound characteristic of MQA, go ahead and subscribe to this compression streaming service. But I doubt MQA DAC is necessary.
