MQA Support Continues to Grow at Munich HIGH END show

MQA, the ground-breaking music technology originated by Meridian Audio, is now in active discussions with over 100 potential business partners. Speaking at the HIGH END MQA keynote, Bob Stuart — MQA inventor — announced this latest milestone in MQA’s development.

The MQA ‘supporters’ list includes many prominent audio brands, including Arcam, Onkyo, and TIDAL, the Jay-Z-owned high-resolution audio streaming service. The list of companies discussing how they can help bring MQA to market also counts record labels, as well as further content and hardware providers.

Bob also announced that MQA is to be established a business entity in its own right, entirely separate to Meridian Audio. This move enables the newly formed MQA Ltd to focus fully on licensing its innovative technology, working directly with MQA supporters, while Meridian Audio continues to concentrate on product innovation.

The Munich-based HIGH END show also saw MQA wow press attendees and audio aficionados alike through exclusive live demonstrations. Bob wound-up his address by identifying this year’s IFA show, to be held in Berlin early September, as the venue for the next wave of major MQA reveals.

Commenting during the Munich Show, Bob Stuart said: “We’re delighted with the continued and overwhelming interest in MQA throughout the industry and the reactions at Munich HIGH END have been extremely positive and highly encouraging.” Bob Stuart also observed “MQA is a philosophy and establishing MQA Ltd. as a separate ongoing business allows us to advance and progress all the activities involved in setting up this exciting new approach. Major announcements are planned in the build up to IFA in September at what will be a very significant event for MQA.”
