Lyngdorf Audio has announced a new software update for the Lyngdorf flagship amplifier, TDAI-3400. With the latest update, the amplifier now includes the MQA Core Decoder, allowing MQA files to be decoded and played directly.
Lyngdorf Audio updated the TDAI-3400 in October 2020 by adding the latest TIDAL Connect feature, allowing the platform’s lossless audio quality to be streamed directly to the amplifier. The addition of MQA follows Lyngdorf Audio’s approach of continuously adding new features to its existing amplifiers and multichannel processors in order to keep them up-to-date for both existing and new customers.
MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning technology that enables music fans to stream the original master recording. While TDAI-3400 owners could already play MQA files with TIDAL Connect, the addition of the integrated MQA Core Decoder now allows higher resolution of the audio stream, as well as playing MQA files from other sources, for example a local USB drive, a computer connected to the USB-B input, or via UPnP.
This update completes the amplifier’s built-in media player, which includes: Roon Ready, Spotify Connect, TIDAL Connect, DLNA Support (UPnP), Airplay, local file playback (USB), Internet Radio (vTuner), and the MQA Core Decoder.
The new software will be available March 1, 2021, and according to the company, the update is easily accessible in the amplifier’s own app menu or via external upload from USB or SD card.
