Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is a revolutionary end-to-end technology built into every Bluesound Player that captures and delivers master quality audio to any room in your home. All Bluesound Players include a powerful decoder and audio renderer for the MQA system. The MQA logo shown in the BluOS app indicates that the unit is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and lets you know that you are hearing exactly what the artist recorded and approved in the studio.
Masters Digital Music Suite Now High Definition wireless music listening, streaming, storage and playback can be found in NAD's perfectly coordinated suite of high performance components. This is a complete solution that does not require a computer. These are noise-free components that offer state-of-the-art digital performance.
Until now, the only way to download and store these precious recordings has required the use of a computer. Computers are designed as business machines and are not built for audio performance. With the Masters Digital Music Suite, NAD introduces a new way to enjoy HD music downloads.
M50 Digital Music Player
The M50 is the brain of the Masters Digital Music Suite, where most of the processing and control functions are located. The M50 is a "software defined" product, meaning that much of the functionality of the system is defined by software not hardware. This means that new cloud services or audio codecs can be integrated at a future date by simply changing the software stack of the M50. This software upgrade potential means that there is a software "roadmap" that allows the M50 to live on and maintain its cutting edge functionality.
Atreaming music services
While the focus is clearly on 24/96 and 24/192 Studio Master downloads and listening, our roadmap includes Internet Radio and premium cloud services. You will be notified when these additional capabilities are available and given the option to add them in your M50.
