Auralic Add MQA Decoding To Lightning DS Devices
A uralic have upgraded Lightning streaming services to be able to process Meridian's MQA technology. The clever bit here is that the Lightning streaming software can take an MQA encoded computer audio file and "Unfold" it. "Unfolding" here means converting the MQA file back natively to its original sampling rate. This results in a PCM file that can be sent to, and decoded by, any DAC (doesn't have to be an Auralic DAC).
