First Public Demonstration of Streaming MQA On TIDAL
Sound & Vision 2017 gives visitors first chance to hear Tidal streaming MQA at a major UK Hi-Fi exhibition and Bluesound is the only multi-room system to support it.
“MQA is a natural match for Bluesound’s hi-res music and wireless streaming platform, and we’re very excited to be the first wireless multi-room system to play back music exactly how it was recorded in the studio,” said Greg Stidsen, Bluesound Director of Technology.
Imagine being able to instantly listen to the original studio performance from your favorite artists with the touch of your smartphone, tablet or laptop, without sacrificing sound quality for convenience. Bluesound brings the experience of the studio into your home.
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.
“Music is important to us all, and being able to connect listeners with the artist’s original studio recording through Bluesound is incredibly exciting,” said Bob Stuart, MQA’s creator."
Bluesound is a smart music system of audiophile-grade wireless speakers and digital players, that allow you to stream music from a library stored 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.
