I am wondering whether Spotify is considering adding the MQA file as a streaming option? MQA can pack up the information from a lossless 24-bit 192kHz PCM file into the sort of space you’d need for a ‘lowly’ 16-bit 44.1KHz stream. That’s CD-quality, and takes up around 1-1.5mbps per channel, within reach of a good 3G connection, and a cinch for a reasonable 4G one. In hi-res competitor format, DSD is 306MB while the MQA file is just 40MB. This compares with 73MB for the 24-bit/96kHz FLAC file and 142MB for the 24-bit/192kHz version

They've got to do something. 320 kb is getting pretty tired. I haven't been a fan of other Hi-rez formats. I'm just not hearing a difference (and I've bought recordings in multiple formats for testing purposes). I WANT to hear a diffence. It just aint there (for me). MQA seems like it could be the grail. Anyway, I'd pony up a couple more bucks a month for better sound.
