High-res music-streaming service Tidal launches MQA codec support (finally)

Theo Nicolakis | Jan. 9, 2017
Tidal has one thing going for it: High-resolution music streaming. Adding MQA support will render the service even more unique. And there will be plenty of other ways to enjoy MQA-encoded music in 2017.

Electronic heavyweights Pioneer and Onkyo will have MQA support in the new digital audio players they announced at CES. Pioneer’s next-generation XDP-300R digital audio player along with a new entry-level DAP and Onkyo’s DP-X1A and its new entry-level model will sport MQA. Oh, and if you’re wondering when you’ll be able to get MQA on your mobile phone, your wait is over. Onkyo announced a preview of it’s forthcoming new high-res smartphone.

If you’re a music lover who wants to get back to the original studio recording, 2017 will be an exciting year.
