MQA can be integrated into home automation for the first time thanks to Control4 Smart Home OS 3

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) has announced that Control4’s new Smart Home OS 3 is the first home automation platform to support MQA’s technology.

MQA delivers authenticated master-quality music in a file small enough to stream which can now be enjoyed at studio quality throughout the whole home thanks to Control4 OS 3 integration.

Control4 OS 3 offers MQA technology and is available worldwide for new and legacy systems using EA Series controllers, as well as Triad audio speakers and equipment such as the Triad One Streaming Amplifier. 

Bob Stuart, founder and CTO of MQA, commented: “As a leading specialist in the home automation market, Control4 is simplifying the daily lives of music lovers who want a streamlined, multiroom listening experience. We’re proud to collaborate with Control4 and the growing global ecosystem of partners who believe everyone deserves to hear their favourite music in its original master quality.”

Noel Gouff, Control4’s VP Business & Corporate Development, said: “Entertainment is a key feature of the Control4 Smart Home, and we support a variety of music servers, so adding MQA was a natural fit to offer more better-than-CD quality options for our customers and audio enthusiasts. Control4 Smart Home OS 3 brings users new ways to launch and adjust their music, and it’s easy to start listening to their MQA library from their smartphone, touch screen, or TV remote, even making it a “Favourite” in key rooms in the home.”
