    Onkyo does have a wide range of pricing and the option to buy MQA-encoded titles. I don't have any MQA enabled gear but I am certainly intrigued by the technology.

    I may have mentioned this before: my understanding is that MQA is lossy 24 bit. I compared 3 titles in cd, Decoded MQA, & true 24 bit a few weeks ago. I could definitely hear a difference. My ranking was:

    1. True 24 bit
    2. MQA
    3. CD

    In a 24 bit streaming vs 16 bit cd listening test, I preferred the cd.

    I found it interesting that many of Onkyo's MQA's were more expensive than anyone else's regular 24 bit releases.
