MQA has announced that its latest codec, which has the technical name SCL6, has received Hi-Res Audio Wireless certification by the Japan Audio Society (JAS). The new codec will come to market as MQair.

MQA founder Bob Stuart says the new codec improves wireless audio quality by focussing on the time domain. The technology supports both MQA and PCM audio up to 384kHz, and the encoded data rate can be scaled seamlessly from 20Mbps to below 200kbps, making it suitable for Bluetooth, Ultra-Wideband (UWB) and Wi-Fi links. Features include low latency and high efficiency, for extended battery life.

“We are very honoured that JAS has certified SCL6 for use with its Hi-ResAudio Wireless logo,” says Stuart. “This latest technology is born of our passion for the highest sound quality and an understanding that such quality brings us closer to the music. With MQair we can improve the listening experience for many listeners and extend the MQA ecosystem to wireless devices. High resolution isn’t necessarily defined by the big things, it is shaped by small elements in the sound that convey details, separation, colour and space. Our reference for transparency is air itself. We are excited to use these insights in the design of MQair to bring a more enjoyable experience to audio fans and music lovers everywhere.”
