Teac has issued a firmware update that brings MQA support to its NR-7CD Network CD player and integrated amplifier and NT-505 USB DAC network player.

The NR-7CD (pictured above) is part of Teac’s ‘New Vintage Line’ line of components, leading-edge audio components with a retro-modern design, while the NT-505 is part of the Reference series, a range of compact separates that encompasses USB DAC/headphone amplifiers, amplifiers, disc players, as well as DAC/network playback devices.

MQA is an advanced audio codec that aims to capture and reproduce the sound of the original studio master, in a file that’s small enough to stream and download easily. MQA music is available from Tidal and download stores including OnkyoMusic.com.

Mandy Clarke, Sales & Marketing Manager Teac EU: “TEAC’s obsession with delivering the most faithful, true to life sound quality is well known. Adding MQA capability to the NR-7CD and NT-505 is the latest step forward in that quest, one that we know owners will truly appreciate.”

Andy Dowell, Director of Licensing MQA: “Teac’s adoption of MQA provides consumers with even more choice when it comes to listening to master quality music. We’re delighted to welcome such a well-known quality brand to our ever expanding base of MQA-enabled hardware partners.”

There are two parts to the upgrade process for the NT-505. The first part updates the System firmware to v1.10, the second part updates the Network firmware to v10.3c

The NR-7CD will be updated automatically by the network.
