Master Quality Authenticated ( MQA) is an audio technology that was originally developed by Bob Stuart, co-founder of Meridian Audio and is now licensed by MQA Ltd. The main idea behind MQA is to take high resolution master recordings and package them into a standard resolution file size that can be easily down loaded or streamed.
