    MQA-CD : how to get the 24/352.8 flac rip?

    Think there's a previous discussion on this.

    Say for example I am a Mac user with a simple DVD drive. How could I Rip the MQA CD to HI Res flac? All I have managed are bog standard 16/44.1....

    Thks

    My understanding (based on reading a bit on this) is that you rip the CD normally to FLAC. Then when playing back the FLAC files through a player/DAC that is MQA-aware, these items will do the necessary unfolds to produce the hi-res version of the tracks. And not all MQA files unfold to 24/352.8.

    I assume it would be from the available material but my renderer only recognise those rips as 16/44.1 flac. So not sure what other settings I must tweak to make this work

    nothing one can do on the dbpa side. Are you sure that your renderer and DAC does MQA unfolds?
    EDIT: See this thread. More detail there:

    I have now got to the stage that Audirvana recognises the file as MQA FLAC. My dCS Bartók supposed to be a full MQA decoder but so far all I got on dCS was 16/88.2. Either this is the real original resolution or I still need to disengage the DSP setting within Audirvana. More experiments ahead I guess

    Finally done! Remove the &*8216;exclusive&*8217; mode for low level audio and the Bartók managed to read MQA
