Our ears are incredibly adept at determining where a sound is coming from. This timing sensitivity evolved to help us thrive in forest environments. As sounds reach us, microseconds apart, our brains build a 3D sonic ‘picture’.

Similarly, at a live performance, we're able to position individual instruments. It’s why live music feels so powerful and a recording seems so flat in comparison.

MQA captures this timing information from the master, so it feels like you’re at the performance.
