I see that the wiki entry for MQA states that "Based on information from Auralic, a manufacturer of Audiophile Wireless Audio Streamers, Meridian Audio prohibits digital output of unpacked MQA in any digital format, only allowing the unpacked data to be fed to an on-board MQA-compatible DAC and output in analog form. Some claim this to be a part of DRM process, which allows a proper MQA file to be authenticated and the full quality of the signal decoded only on commercially-licensed equipment." So not even sure what Audirvana has going on. In theory they can pay the same license fee for the software, but piracy can rear its ugly head. I forseee someone making an unlicensed plug in in Foobar for this.
