MQA/Tidal/Roon : Day2
Tidal has added more MQA Masters records today, and I’m a bit more jazzed.
I’m using the software decoding, since the Yggdrasil isn’t ready for MQA.
Listening to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot now, and it sounds lovely. Again, it feels less compressed in this version – wide open – and so spatial cues are more there. Stage depth seems to have sunk – perhaps the noise floor has dropped. The open feel first made me think tonal colors were faded somewhat. I don’t think that’s true now. I want more time…
More air and space between instruments lends to the illusion of being closer to the music.
Based on the records I’ve heard, I like how MQA sounds/feels.
