MQA says that Harman audio brand JBL Synthesis has joined as its latest partner. This is just the latest Harman brand to join, as JBL Synthesis follows both Mark Levinson and Arcam, both of whom had signed up with high quality music reproduction technology provider earlier.
At the CEDIA Expo, Harman will show new products from JBL Synthesis, including the SDR-35 AV receiver and the SDP-55 AV processor. Also being shown is the Arcam SA30 flagship integrated amplifier – in its first show appearance.
The company notes that Monitor Audio will also be announcing its new IMS-4 streamer, featuring a BluOS module with MQA capability at the Expo.
