Are the Format Wars Returning? Techmoan Intros the MQA-CD | #MusicMonday #audiophile #mqacd
TL;DR: format wars returning? Not likely.
But still, I thought we were past this – physical media for digital audio. (And that’s coming from me who still plays CDs – that I bought ~25 years ago – on my Onkyo receiver.) Alas, the CD is making a comeback (at least in Japan).
Kudos for the Dire Straits disc spotted in the thumbnail:
MQA-CD is a physical Hi-res music format, but while the discs are relatively affordable, playing them back can be anything but.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
