Founded in the 1990s as a fan site, nugs.net has evolved into the leading official source of live music from some of the largest touring artists in the world.  Metallica, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Phish, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many other artists now distribute recordings of every concert they play through nugs.net. In January 2018, nugs.net was the first service to offer MQA playback on iOS devices, offering thousands of full-length concerts to HiFi tier subscribers.  Android support followed later the same year.

"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."
