I wouldn’t trust anything Aurender did after they did this with their A10 network player/server trying to make MQA seem better than when it was switched out.
JA Stereophile Test
"However, the A10’s misapplication of the MQA reconstruction filter to non-MQA files stored on its internal drive means we must withhold a full recommendation for the A10 until this problem has been corrected."
This to me smells, to hobble anything that’s non MQA.
Good on ya JA for not withholding it.
Read all comments after the bench tests.
This is good
"Aurender declined to submit a comment for publication.
Wow George.I don’t think so, it would have been madness of Aurender to continue even if it could do MQA with that, after it was exposed with the A10
But it just goes to show the lengths some "may" go to to gain advantages.
I doubt it but don’t forget "maybe" MQA "could" have been involved in this with Aurender, as they would have gained also from it, if it was never found out. (a conspiracy theory maybe)
All I can say is good on Stereophile and JA for telling all.
Aurender routinely fixes things via app updates.If you read the Stereophile bench tests, they did do the latest firmware updates to try to fix it, but it didn’t apparently. Then Aurender wouldn’t comment on it when asked by JA. "Aurender declined to submit a comment for publication." Read into that what you will!!!
