You’re wrong. Streaming at true 24/196 will require around 10mbps. And that’s more than 1080p streaming. And that to me is wasteful.I'm also waiting for Spotify HiFi. Hopefully they don't mess about with the sound and just upload CDs. Best thing would be if there were different masters from different years uploaded so we can listen to better masters from before the loudness wars.
Spotify Premium already sounds pretty good on our system through Spotify Connect on our Yamaha RN-602.. But I'm happy to pay a few euros more per month to get CD quality.
I already had serious doubts about MQA before I watched the video. We should not be supporting non-transparant proprietary systems. I really agree with the point about the bandwidth that is used by 24/192 streaming: it only takes about 5MB/s to stream hi-res audio. We don't need a form of lossy compression if we can already stream video at 4k. MQA is a non-solution for a problem we don't have. It's wasteful nonsense.
