I'm holding off on my N10 purchase until they get it done. If they can't deliver, I'll go with the Lumin U1, which already has a successful MQA Core Unfolding Beta version out. I'm currently a new owner of the Berkeley Reference 2 MQA DAC, which offers MQA Rendering but not Core MQA Unfolding.
Ken.......This will certainly be interesting to keep an eye on. Core MQA unfolding on my Aurender N10 would be a nice upgrade, although I'm not holding my breath.

Wouldn't that just be a software upgrade for the non DAC models just like for the Lumin U1? As they already have full decoding on the A10 shouldn't be that difficult if they are so inclined.

Jack.......I am far from a MQA expert. I am assuming that Core MQA unfolding would provide the first level unfold. If that is the case, then 24Bit/96KHz playback of MQA music files should be made available as I understand it. If that is something that can be made available through firmware, that would be tremendous. Please feel free to correct my assumption if I am wrong.

That's my understanding. That initial unfold is software/ firmware based just like with the Tidal desktop app. They would just need to make the unfold from the A10 applicable to the non DAC models firmware. Don't see a reason they wouldn't if they are planning no more model changes until the next Munich show.

Hi,

How are you finding the Berkeley ref 2 sonics over your Esoteric?

It's a good move for streaming MQA.
