  • “No audio process in history has ever given us the full, intricate detail of a live performance. MQA goes all the way back to the original master recording and captures it completely. Every detail, every tiny drop of emotion, is authentically reproduced. This means, for the first time in the history of recorded music, music lovers are really hearing the artist’s performance.”
