Legendary jazz musician, Bob James, explains why he's so excited to have his latest album released as an MQA-CD.

"I'm so proud to see companies that are still trying to upgrade to the highest quality audio, we live in a time when everything seems to be wanting to be compressed people want to get more and more music onto their phones and they end up with these Mp3 files, they sound ok, but a lot of the quality that we try to achieve when we're making the music gets lost nd the listeners sometimes don't know. But the fact that, there's an audience for it, people who expect more makes me very proud that my company, Evolution, went to the extra effort to make sure that my special project was released in this MQA format. It's fantastic and anybody that has an MQA compatible player and who understands a little bit about the fact that it's just more information, it's higher quality in every way."

"I have spent many hours with Bob, listening to original recordings and being constantly amazed by the incredible sense of space and clarity brought by MQA."

Morten Lindberg, Producer and Grammy multi-nominee

"We have done many blind comparisons of my original high-resolution masters with and without the MQA process. MQA is the consistent winner."

Alan Silverman, Mastering Engineer

"Digital music has given users the ability to hold “a thousand songs in their pocket” for over a decade. But that convenience came at the sacrifice of quality. MQA gives the user the ability to keep the convenience of a large library in their pocket, without sacrificing the quality of the music."

MQA are proud to have already received a range of awards and accolades.
