Is the world and our wallets ready to welcome hi-fidelity streaming? 18 May 2017

Hi-Fidelity audio streaming

An organization certified by the RIAA, MQA has existing long-standing deals with three big labels: Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment and Warner Music Group.

MQA was first made available on Tidal after it was commercially launched in 2016 and ever since, it has had a fast growing list of compatible hardware.

A music origami process is used by the service to convert large 24 bit files into formats compatible with video streaming services and music devices without loss of quality.
