Re: Buying from Japan
On the topic of “buying from Japan,” Universal Music is using Japan as a test market for something called the MQA-CD. MQA is a high resolution audio format that adapts to the users playback system. If you have a CD player, you get CD quality audio. If you have a universal disc player that can playback anything, you will hear a recording at 32bit/384kHz assuming the master recording was made at that bit depth and sample rate. Anyways, Japan is the only country where these MQA-CD’s are available at the moment and I was curious if anyone living in Japan has heard of these or bought one? The MQA-CD is a niche product that is being tested in one market. I found out about it today by chance. MQA audio has been around for a few years, but never in a physical format.
