- MQA - What it Stands for
TIDAL now offers MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology, which is a way of compressing digital music without limitations to deliver guaranteed master-quality sound. This allows subscribers to hear music just as it was recorded in the studio; an audio experience as the artist intended.
All you need is a TIDAL HiFi membership to get access to thousands of master-quality albums through the TIDAL desktop application. When you are in the TIDAL desktop app, go to What’s New and select Masters in the Albums section.
We have a large number of our TIDAL artist owners and key independent labels. We will continue to add more master-quality content over time. Visit the MQA website for all MQA-enabled devices http://www.mqa.co.uk/customer/our-partners. You can also contact MQA at firstname.lastname@example.org for any MQA-specific questions.
Currently you can listen to MQA quality music via the desktop app which can be downloaded here: http://tidal.com/us/download. You can also listen via the Essential and LG V30 phone.
