This new release of all new tracks on CD, all solo acoustic, is encoded with MQA. That means if you play the CD in a computer audio or CD player setup that decodes MQA, you will get the full sound quality of the tracks.
You can Two Track Mind – Solo Acoustic” here at CD Baby: http://cdbaby.com/cd/davidelias19
However it can play on any CD player including in your car. It sounds great. The MQA encoding is beneficial especially to my ears at CD quality resolution regardless whether it is decoded or not. There is no hi-res to unfold on this master so there is nothing missing!
Just a new way of creating good sounding CDs. You’ll may see a lot more MQA CDs out there in the future…
You can rip this CD like any other. The MQA is preserved as long as you rip to a lossless format like FLAC or ALAC or WAV or AIF. The ripped tracks are then identical to what’s on the disc.
A new world in digital music no doubt. Mahalo!
