Onkyo Launches MQA Support, TIDAL Masterson Select Hi-Fi Components via Firmware Update on Dec. 18th

Communiqué de presse en date du: 13 déc. 2018

OSAKA, JAPAN. Onkyo is pleased to announce a firmware update release on Dec. 18th that activates MQA audio playback capability and support for TIDAL Masters audio streaming on its network-enabled stereo hi-fi components.

MQA delivers high-resolution sound in a file that’s small enough to stream and download. TIDAL Masters, meanwhile, is TIDAL’s bandwidth-friendly MQA-based Studio Master audio streaming format offered exclusively to TIDAL HiFi members that’s now available to enjoy on any of the Onkyo products detailed below following this firmware update.

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated)

Leveraging scientific research into how people hear, the MQA team created a technology that captures 100 per cent of the original studio performance. MQA files are fully authenticated and are small enough to stream or download. The format is backward-compatible, meaning MQA music can be enjoyed on any device. This award-winning technology is licensed by labels, music services, and hardware manufacturers worldwide.

TIDAL Masters

TIDAL has partnered with MQA to deliver master-quality recordings from the source for an audio experience as the artist intended. TIDAL Masters are authenticated, unbroken, and delivered at high resolution (typically 96 kHz/24-bit), creating a facsimile of the sound in the mastering suite. TIDAL offers thousands of TIDAL Masters albums to TIDAL HiFi members.

Onkyo Music

Onkyo Music is an online Hi-Res Audio retailer open to listeners in Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Onkyo Music offers an extensive MQA catalog.

Network Audio Players NS-6170/NS-6130 

Network Stereo Receiver R-N855 

Network CD Receivers CR-N775/ CR-N775 D
