Below are two examples of same album, and I want to understand the difference and what is SUPPOSE to be different.
One is Tidal (which I’m trying on trial now) and the other 96k from Qobuz which I have and like pretty well. Should the theory be that their very similar and the big difference is that the streaming rate and file size are more compact, or is there more to it…
Second question, how is an older artist like this’s content created at these formats. Does someone get permission to take original tracks (analog?) and use a modern encoder in each of the different formats to be able to offer this?
And one more thing, in this situation, is the MQA considered the default higher res format by Roon and why?
