    I recently started my free trial of Tidal, and have been focused primarily on MQA files. I am unfolding these with an Audioquest Dragonfly Red. Overall I’m pretty satisfied with the Dragonfly and MQA. Here are the MQA albums I’ve been impressed with.

    Fleetwood Mac- Rumors - dynamic, punchy, and engaging
    Eagles - Hotel California - a little forward sounding on my system, but dynamic and clean
    The Velvet Underground - Loaded - sonically not in the same category as Rumors, but clean, clear, and fun to listen too.
    Chris Stapleton From A Room - dynamic, punchy and engaging

    On my MQA listen too list
    The Black Keys
    ZZ Top

    I’ll list more as I have time to listen through them. Share your favorites.

    The first three ZZ Top LPs are very nice sounding, especially if your previous digital exposure to them was that 6 Pack box set.

    BTW, have you seen this list?


    TIDAL MASTERS

    And a Bigger one (over 10,000 titles) from Meridian unplugged that one has to download and open in EXCEL.

    Not sure if all of them are available in the US but every one I have been interested in was.

    I’ll add another one to my list.

    Deep Purple Machine Head - I’ve listened to it about 5 times in the last week. Killer! Lazy is so clear and dynamic. The whole album really sounds great.
