I would like to purchase the newest Patricia Barber MQA CD. I have a CD5 XS, a UnitiCore, and an NDS. I have not been able to find any information concerning my system’s ability to play MQA CDs. Does anybody know if the CD5 XS can play it. Would the UnitiCore accept the MQA CD?
Thanks for posting this! I’m trying to figure out which version to buy. I have an NDX and a CDX2. . . . and there seems to be no good alternative. I’ve heard a few cuts and want to get it, but am thinking I should wait for the vinyl unless someone here advises me otherwise.
Is this the Higher album? On the Patricia Barber website there is no MQA CD but an SACD, and it does not say if this is a hybrid version that plays on a redbook player.
The download option is listed on this website but the purchase link is broken. However there seems to be a DSD download option like Guinnless mentioned on nativedsd dot com
Oh, no, I was referring to the new one, Clique, which (via Impex) is available in a variety of formats. I’m not a Tidal person, just Qobuz, and the latter hasn’t bought the licensing for it yet. I’m frustrated with the choices, none of which is suited for Naim. Which leads me back to vinyl ….(unless someone gives me a good suggestion here).
I see. That one isn’t on the official website and according to the jpc website it is not released yet, its date is August 20. So I guess it might still appear on Qobuz. The SACD at least is hybrid. And the downloads are DSD which I think the NDX can play
The title of her newest album is Clique. Higher and Clique were produced at the same time but she released Higher first. I stream FM 91 from Toronto, CA. This is a jazz station. They publish an online newsletter available for viewing on their web page only. They interviewed Patricia Barber and you still be able to find the interview.
