Was at the Chicago Axponia yesterday and having a strong interest in MQA, cornered one of two MQA guys there (they had no room of their own, only had one small shared very basic system playing MQA files from a thumb drive). Asked him about Oppo and future partnership for this small technological improvement. He couldn't say, but he did smile. Current dac's or Oppo's do not appear up-gradable although he did suggest that a firmware upgrade would be possible for some dac's until I asked how the two lights showing which of the two level's of MQA is being decoded would be dealt with.
So, after having written Oppo and getting a non response response, hopefully this new improvement in overall sound will be included in future models. It also is advertised of similar or slightly improved sound even if NOT decoded. 2L has a test site with MQA and non MQA downloads to see how it sounds un-decoded versus a regular wav or flac.
