MQA has revolutionised the world of music streaming, giving millions of people access to the best sound possible. From high-end hi-fi to affordable audio brands, MQA technology enables high-quality audio at the touch of a button, at home and on the move.
Thanks to MQA’s network of partners, you now have more choice than ever when it comes to listening to MQA audio. And the network continues to grow, with the addition of new brands and products.
New high-end audio partners
Munich High End Show may not be happening this year but there’s still plenty of news when it comes to MQA, and that includes new partners. Monitor Audio, one of the biggest names in hi-fi, is launching its latest IMS-4 music streamer, complete with MQA support, while Luxman, one of the leading names in luxury audio, is also supporting MQA streaming and MQA-CD with its latest D-03X digital music player.
Other new brands joining the MQA network for 2020 are HiFi Rose, with the RS201 media player and RS150 network streamer, Magnet with its Elite S DAC and the D90 DAC from Topping.
Brand new MQA products
And that’s not all when it comes to high-end audio. Existing MQA partners such as NAD, Arcam and Pro-Ject are also announcing new products. The NAD T778 AV amplifier and M33 BluOS streaming DAC both support MQA, while Arcam’s five-star SA30 integrated amplifier and Solo Uno streaming amplifier will also offer MQA audio.
Other premium MQA products coming this year include the Pro-Ject DAC Box RS2, a high-end DAC in a compact package, the EMM Labs DAC V2, the Bel Canto e1X DAC and the flagship SMSL M400 desktop DAC.
Accessible MQA audio
And you don’t have to be spending serious money to enjoy high-quality audio. There are new and existing partners in the portable market, too, making MQA music more accessible. The five-star FiiO M11 Pro, M11 and M15 all allow you to take MQA audio on the move, as well as additional MQA-enabled portable products such as Astell&Kern’s A&norma SR25, iFi Audio’s hip-DAC, and HiBy Music’s portable players R6 and R6 Pro.
In-car and on the move
If you’re looking to upgrade your smartphone’s audio capability, the five-star Zorloo Ztella DAC ‘dongle’ is set to be joined by the HELM Audio Bolt and Highscreen TrueSound Pro - proving there are plenty of portable MQA options, too.
For the ultimate marriage of high-end audio and portability, JVC Kenwood will be adding more products to its MQA-enabled range of in-car audio products.
Whatever your requirements, MQA’s expanding international network of premium and accessible products will help deliver the best listening experience.
