MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) high-resolution audio MQA is a brand new format for high-resolution audio. Not only does it deliver "studio-quality" sound, but the files are much smaller than other lossless formats. And that means you can stream hi-res audio with virtually no buffering or lag. Bluesound is among the first gear to be MQA-compatible. TIDAL, which is available to stream through all Bluesound components, uses MQA for their high-res streaming service (subscription required).
