MQA analyzed deeply

This discussion at roonlabs is the deepest discussion of MQA I have ever seen.

If nothing else, it also appears Stuart has done DBT proving the audibility of different types of reconstruction filters in digital audio.  (This article is behind AES paywall, but described at the previous link.)

This certainly throws out the findings of the famous Meyer-Moran tests many years earlier proporting to show the inaudibility of digital conversions even many layers deep.  For years audio objectivists have claimed that "all digital is the same" based on Meyer-Moran.  That will no longer wash.
