Bluesound Players to Stream MQA Wirelessly

Bluesound | MQA logos

Bluesound announced today that MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) will be available on all Bluesound Players starting June 1, 2016. With the upcoming BluOS firmware release, version 2.2, listeners around the world will now have the ability to stream MQA music through any Bluesound Player.

Using pioneering scientific research into how people hear, MQA technology captures the full magic of the original studio performance. MQA is a revolutionary end-to-end technology that delivers master quality audio in a file that’s small enough to stream or download. And because it’s fully authenticated, listeners can be sure they are hearing exactly what the artist recorded and approved in the studio. MQA is the first technology to capture this crucial timing information – to transport the listener to the original performance.

“We’re very excited to be the first wireless multi-room system to play back music exactly how it was recorded in the studio.”

— Greg Stidsen, Bluesound Director of Technology and Product Planning

Bluesound is a smart music system of audiophile-grade wireless speakers and digital players, that allow you to stream music from a library store on your home network and many popular music streaming services, to any room in your home with the control of a smartphone, tablet or laptop.

Users will need to upgrade to the new BluOS firmware, version 2.2 which is available starting June 1, to fully experience the magic of studio master recordings on Bluesound. In addition, Bluesound is actively working with MQA to support select BluOS-enabled systems from sister company, NAD Electronics, in the future.

All media are invited to experience a live MQA demonstration on Bluesound in Atrium 3.1, Room C112 (MOC Munich) at 12:00 PM CEST on May 6, 2016.
