Sorry but at no point can I see you mention that it cannot be done, unless I am missing something there, so you didn't tell him what I have just mention. You expressed an opinion regarding the format which is fine but saying don't bother implies it might be possible.Read my post again. I basically told him what you just said. It seems like old knee-jerk habits die hard, I include myself 🙃
Thank you. No interpretation needed, and I agree with your bold statement.AI, apologies, I see what you mean at a stretch, so to the OP, no cannot convert anything to MQA by an end user right now. And MP3 is a compressed, lossy format, so converting to anything else does not make any sense.
CD format has its own Redbook formulation, you aren't going to get an MQA CD, and nor should you need one.Is there actually much in the way of high res music, encoded in MQA format actually available, apart from that offered by Tidal?
EDIT: Found a small number of CDs marketed as MQA fomat on Amazon but, mostly with no indication of bitrate.
