    Red Oaks – hilarious so far. An old-school sex comedy set in a 1980s New Jersey country club. An Amazon series – I hate these digital exclusive restrictions.

    What are you reading now?

    Phonogram: Rue Britannia by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie (I was reading The Wicked + The Divine last week but I wanted to go backwards for a bit... the trade paperback releases take a while, so I usually forgot what happened in the previous issues) Lots of Britpop references – time to catch up, starting with Pulp and Kenickie

    MQA-CD (oh no, not again)

    Yes, I've been reading about MQA since the hype train left the station, but it seems to be a controversial format (there could be licensing issues I'm not aware of). I have trouble understanding the technology, for all the claims that have been made. The number of manufacturers that have decided against implementing MQA is also a matter of concern. http://bobtalks.co.uk/blog/mqaplayback/origami-and-the-last-mile/ https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/mqa-time-domain-accuracy-digital-audio-quality
  10. Found this Techmoan video on MQA-CD when I was checking out Meiko's latest album from Chesky Records, Playing Favorites: I'm going to sit this one out for a while. It seems to be a Japan-only phenomenon for a while, and there are no mainstream players.
