MQA audio

Hello as a serious computer audiophile I would like to know if Foobar is planning to add MQA audio functionality to their product?
I think I would also be willing to pay for this functionality / plugin.

Any progress on this?

Kind regards, William

I think a substantial licensing fee is required to implement a software MQA decoder, so it is highly unlikely to be implemented in Foobar.

And honestly, MQA isn't worth the hassle. It degrades sound quality if you don't have an MQA decoder (software or hardware) and all it does is encode inaudible information in a lossy way. It's not worth the tradeoff.

The real purpose of MQA seems to simply be to generate licensing payments to Bob Stuart.

I highly doubt that Foobar will ever support MQA.

MQA is a sham.
Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?
