General Audio / Re: MQA (at least on Tidal Masters) sounds "muddy" to me. Am I nuts?

As an addendum, does anybody remember the promo piece of Neil Young demonstrating pono by carting around other washed up artists looking to resell their catalog in his convertible?  I can’t find a better environment to hear the subtle nuances that make music come alive.
 
 Not to mention most, if not all of them, having their ageing auditory systems plagued by tinnitus didn't exactly qualify them to be as "golden earred" as they wanted whoever was dumb enought to fall for that crap to believe.

But these fossils are believed since they have long and successful careers in the industry. Of course being a fossil guarantees a loss of the ability to hear high frequencies, those frequencies being the cornerstone of the technology. There’s also the attempt to fix an unknown problem, and surely other things I’ve missed.

We had a long thread already about the MQA nonsense.
The only attempt for a fair comparison i know between MQA and non MQA was organized by Archimago at his blog. MQA sounding muddy was surely not the outcome.
At Tidal i doubt you can do comparisons easily because almost certainly the MQA versions are different masters and even if they come from the same nobody knows what things were exactly done to the MQA version.

Many glorifying reports on forums are coming from shills being part of fossilized gangs of the audio business hoping to make money like in the good old times.
I don't remember this video was linked here already:
