Meridian Unveils Master Quality Authenticated Technology
Meridian this week announced the arrival of its new MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology which, the company said, is "poised to change the way people enjoy music all over the world."
The technology was developed and introduced by Meridian Audio founder Bob Stuart.
MQA, the company said, "captures and preserves nuances and vital information that current music files obscure or discard, but in a file that is small and convenient to download or stream."
The first products with the technology will arrive in 2015.
“Music lovers need no longer be shortchanged; finally we can all hear exactly what the musicians recorded. MQA gives a clear, accurate and authentic path from the recording studio all the way to any listening environment – at home, in the car or on the go," Stuart said in a statement.
"And we didn’t sacrifice convenience. ”Stuart also advised that “the announcement of MQA is really about the future of recorded music. Music is important to us all. When the sound is authentic it is more involving, we understand it better and enjoy it longer. MQA is already receiving broad support from the music industry, artists, recording and mastering engineers and record labels.”
