IRIVER To Add MQA Support For Line Of Audio Streaming Devices

MQA Support Will Be Added To Streaming Devices Starting With ACTIVO, Then Added To Other Streaming And Audio Devices

Las Vegas, NV – IRIVER, the parent company of Astell&Kern, the global leader in high-resolution portable audio players, announces support for MQA decoding and playback will be added to the ACTIVO portable high-resolution audio player in January 2018.

MQA’s award-winning technology captures and reproduces the sound of the original studio master in a file that’s small enough to stream and download easily.  With the TIDAL Masters integration, users can instantly stream thousands of MQA tracks on their players.

James Lee, CEO of IRIVER said, “IRIVER is committed to bringing the latest innovation and technology to consumers.  We are happy to add MQA support to the new ACTIVO audio player, powered by Astell&Kern’s new TERATON sound solution.  We will continue to add MQA support to other streaming and audio devices in the future.”

Mike Jbara, CEO of MQA, commented, “It’s exciting that MQA’s technology will be integrated into IRIVER devices.  IRIVER’s addition to the list of MQA partners is a milestone in the creation of an environment where all consumers can easily enjoy high quality audio.”

The ACTIVO CT10 is the first high-resolution audio player from groovers Japan and features the new TERATON sound module by Astell&Kern, allowing high resolution audio playback up to 24bit, 192 kHz high resolution PCM audio and up to double-rate DSD (converted to PCM).  The ACTIVO CT10 also supports music streaming services including TIDAL and
groovers Japan.

The ACTIVO CT10 will be displayed in the Astell&ASPR booth during CES2018, Central Hall, booth # 18218.
