WhatHifi or at least Becky is just taking the Tidal wording, without mentioning, that even a MQA file through a "non MQA DAC" sounds better than FLAC HiRes or whatever. For audiophiles TIDAL is history. But good news could be on the way.

Interesting: WHF seems to mock Tidal's "hi-res" FLAC claim with "(or 'HiRes FLAC', as it's being called)", huh?

It's lossless, and like other forms of lossless, such as WMA lossless, the essence and full principle is that lossless is lossless, regardless, no? Can there be a superior/inferior form of FLAC? Does Tidal claim anything specific -superior ripping, I suppose, or is it being purposely vague or silent -just marketing it as non-plain, non/extra-ordinary FLAC, 'trust us'??

Why do WHF keep awarding Tidal? Qobuz is better sound quality and much cheaper, less than £11 pm for HR. They also don't keep pushing RAP and R&B, at me.
MQA has gone, that is the good news.
