re: Fiberglass pools in the Lafayette area - Marco Esquandolas
I have a gunite salt water. Put it in about 3 years ago. I can hardly taste the salt. No equipment shows any sign of rust. I have a pool heater for the hot tub and pool and use it frequently--it is totally clean with no signs of salt erosion or build up. The tiles on the walls of the pool an...

re: Best way to download FLAC/MQA files? - Marco Esquandolas
Think of MQA as sort of a quasi ZIP type file. It is compressed and then decompressed--sort of. The file size for MQA is its selling point. Go to Stereophile magazine and search the archives for the last couple years--they have a fantastic article that totally explains how MQA works....

Here's what I would do... Get a [link=(https://www.meridian-audio.com/en/products/dacs/usb-dacs/explorer/)]Meridian Explorer2 DAC[/link] for $299 and a USB-to-RCA cable for $10. Run this DAC through a regular line level input...this will give you decoding for MQA, 32/192, 24/96, 24/192, DSD...

re: Best way to download FLAC/MQA files? - Marco Esquandolas
The AC200 was released in 2009---8 years ago...it does not decode MQA. MQA is relatively new. MQA just started to appear in DACs 24 months ago (and those were Meridian's DACs). A year ago, only about 3 other manufacturers of high end gear were able to decode MQA--and they weren't cheap. Wi...

re: Best way to download FLAC/MQA files? - Marco Esquandolas
Your DAC has to have MQA decoding in order to get the benefit of MQA. As far as FLAC files go, just download and use MAXX software to convert to AIFF or Apple lossless or whatever else. You can then store it in iTunes....
