I added the MQA upgrade on my N10, and it was definitely worth it. I know MQA is controversial for some, but it sounds very, very good on my system. At this level, to get a significant performance increase for just $50 is a great deal.

MQA is just gimmick and it is scientifically proven. If you are hearing a difference it is because it is a different master or placebo effect. Read this article if you have few minutes.
MQA update worth itOne word, from everything legit and not affiliated I’ve listened to/heard of/read/and tests of MQA ????????? And that’s it, it’s not even worth one word.
And if you remember Aurender 1st dac with MQA was tested by Stereophile to hobbel anything without MQA encoding, and they said it was faulty when pulled up on it, YEAH RIGHT!!!!! a company submits a something without checking that’s faulty which can make or break them, "pull the other one it plays jingle bells."
I recently spent a lot more than this to go from a Non MQA dac/streamer to one that provided a full MQA decode. The difference to me was well worth it. My ears, my system, my room. It seems that this is typical. I compared with and without MQA and I could hear the lack of time smear and the better time domain articulation from MQA.
