Master Quality Authenticated (MQA)

High Resolution Streaming technology

What is MQA

MQA is a revolutionary technology that brings the listener as close as possible to the artist’s original performance. Using pioneering scientific research into how people hear, MQA technology captures the full magic of the original audio performance, in a file that’s small enough to stream or download. The days of sacrificing quality for convenience are over.


LUMIN network music players can automatically perform Core Decoding and Hardware Rendering of MQA-encoded streams to get the maximum available Hi-Res music data (up to 24-bit 384kHz).
