Innuos and MQA


Partner Spotlight

When we’re not enjoying our favorite music or designing new and better ways to do that, we like finding ways to add value to the Innuos experience through partnerships with others.

Innuos music server/streamers and network music players include MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording. MQA Core software decoding is provided free of charge.

MQA is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download.

All Innuos products running innuOS Operating System 2.3 or higher can take advantage of MQA Core software decoding. Your operating system can be updated using the Innuos Sense app.
