The audiophile world is keen on the new MQA lossless codec. It does seem to offer some significant advantages, so much so that I can't image purchasing a DAC without MQA capability.. Will MQA support be offered as an option on the Geekout V2 series?
Although unavailable now, we've looked at the spec, and think we can support it in the future with a firmware update.
We are working to include MQA support. Once finalized and licensed, a firmware will then be released.
+1 Bump on this thread.
Tidal just updated their desktop app to support MQA through their "MASTER" quality setting. I'm testing it now using my Geek Out (v1). I have to use software processing of the MQA, otherwise it is being reverted back down to 44.1khz.
Any update on if/when the Geek Out or Pulse Dacs will get native MQA support?
Hi, This can be very interesting. Does this apply to other LH dacs such as Pulse?
Any ETA on MQA firmware for the GO V2 series?
I am with Dale on this profoundly stupid journey - what is wrong with this organisation - promise after promise broken - it is not curing cancer - just a circuit board - I have had a PSU for about 2 years - not sure if it even works
hope it is not old tech by the time we get it ....
We're working on an update for the Vi Dac!
Why is LH Labs not on the list?
When will we receive a straight and up-to-date answer about MQA compatibility on ALL LH products -- DACs and the Source?
The latest issue of The Absolute Sound includes a column by Robert Harley updating information on MQA. Has there been any progress or further thinking about incorporating this into Source. What about that firmware upgrade for Pulse?
When can we expect the updated firmware?
I'm using Roon, a microRendu and an Explorer 2 DAC and I'm enjoying great sound with MQA files too.
Maybe someday my Source will arrive. Maybe it will live up to its hype. Too many maybes.
Updates were promised about this at least two months ago. Have I missed them? Certainly there must be something you can tell us.
I'm unaware of any timelines on the V2 series MQA update. I'll ask and report back if I hear anything.
A-VCOA will be having a demo and presentation on MQA from Meridian America (Tech Center here in Atlanta) this coming Saturday. If you are in this area you are welcome to attend. We expect to know more about MQA after this session. Anyone on this string is welcome, but please call me to confirm.
