MQA and Tidal now available
Damn if it didn’t take forever to get MQA to a full unfold but we’re finally here. Our engineering department, in conjunction with MQA’s founder, Bob Stuart (who helped guide the process and make sure PS got red carpet service), MQA is finally available to PS DAC owners.
Yup, free. If you own a Bridge II and one of our DACs that supports the separate Bridge card, DirectStream and the PerfectWave DAC, or a DirectStream Junior (where it’s built in), you’re good to go after an update that’s easy to install.
Unlike some versions of MQA implementation, the engineers managed to pull off a full unfold up to 192kHz 24 bits.
And then, there’s Tidal. Using the free MConnect App, MControl for Apple or Android, users with Tidal premium service can access MQA tracks to their heart’s content.
There’s plenty of debate surrounding MQA and now PS DAC owners can jump into the middle of the fray and have at it, experiencing it all.
Have fun and drop us a note on the forums of your experience.
