Supports MQA/MQA-CD Decoding

Analog sound often suffers from time blurring when converted to a digital signal, which obscures transient signals and diminishes the authenticity of the listening experience. MQA technology eliminates this distortion, creating a true 3D sound field that redefines your auditory perception. Unlock the potential with MQA. Traditional digital audio filters can compromise time resolution, resulting in pre- and post-transient hum. MQA technology significantly reduces these vibrations, preserving the integrity of the original recording and encapsulating the sound with remarkable precision. Enhance your audio experience with MQA Decoder: Expand MQA files to provide superior sound quality that surpasses CD quality. Products equipped with MQA decoders offer seamless integration with music streaming services and media players like Roon, delivering unparalleled audio fidelity.
