MQA Lets Listeners Hear Music as it Was Recorded

November 10, 2017

Music technology company MQA Music says that technology has advanced to the point that, even if you have low-quality devices, your experience doesn't have to be compromised.

The music technology company, which packages master recordings into smaller files that can be easily streamed, promises that its methods keep audio file quality high and the file size low.

This means music fans can now hear what artists intended for their songs. The company doesn't cut anything out of music files, CEO Mike Jbara said.

"We actually fold down and then unfold [the file] when the music fan is playing it back," he said.

Jbara credits his core engineering team for the technology that many other companies aren't able to reproduce.

Currently, the MQA is accessible on platforms such as Tidal, the music streaming service helmed by JAY-Z, and nugs.net, a live streaming channel.
