Menlo Park, CA / London, 28 November 2017 – The OPPO UDP-205, its newest universal player, has just gotten a firmware update that enables the decoding of Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) recordings in its music mode. Listeners can enjoy the full benefit of Master Quality Authenticated-encoded music with studio-quality sound. This firmware update is OPPO’s first step in supporting the relatively new audio format. OPPO is continuing the work on Master Quality Authenticated-CD support, as well as adding decoding support for the format to the USB DAC and coaxial/optical inputs.

Delivering reference audio performance has always been the core feature of the OPPO UDP-205 universal player. We are thrilled to work with MQA to incorporate MQA decoding into the player,” said Jason Liao, CTO of OPPO Digital. “Our audiophile customers will enjoy the lifelike and engaging listening experience with the studio master sound quality provided by MQA.” Master Quality Authenticated founder and CTO, Bob Stuart adds “We are proud to be partners of OPPO and extremely happy that MQA’s technology has been incorporated into the UDP-205 universal disc player.”

Current owners of the UDP-205 can update their players directly using the online firmware update feature if the player is connected to the Internet. The firmware is also available for download at OPPO Digital’s website.
