Sonic Studio has integrated MQA High-Res Audio technology into Amarra 4 Luxe v4.1, its consumer computer audio platform. Amarra 4 Luxe supports local MQA file playback and additionally supports TIDAL MQA Streaming for HiFi subscribers.

Amarra users without an MQA-enabled DAC can enjoy MQA decoding at 2x sample rates (88.2kHz or 96kHz), while users with an MQA-enabled DAC will hear full MQA with the original sample rate, platform-specific DAC compensation and sample rates up to 8x (352kHz or 384kHz).

With Amarra 4 Luxe, users can sort, search, navigate, and play back their entire music collection. World class DSP includes multi-stage up-sampling as well as a fully customizable, professional-level EQ, with presets for different genres, speakers or headphones. Amarra 4 Luxe supports Mac OS X 10.8 or higher as well as Windows 8 & 10.

Sonic Studio professional digital audio workstations are in use at major studios, record labels, broadcast and post production facilities worldwide for music production, film, and restoration.

Jonathan Reichbach, CEO, says: “With direct MQA decoding, consumers will now experience unrivalled music reproduction. With Windows MQA support coming soon our future plans include iOS integration for MQA streaming/offline playback, DSP processing and more.”

Mike Jbara, CEO of MQA, adds: “It’s good news for music fans that we continue to expand the reach of MQA through partner integrations and the Amarra range is a great addition.”
