Partnership in High Resolution Audio

7digital (AIM:7DIG), the digital music and radio services company, announces a global partnership with British audio pioneer, Meridian Audio ("Meridian"), based around Meridian's recently launched revolutionary new High Resolution sound experience MQA, or Master Quality Authenticated.

Meridian, based near Cambridge, has over 35 years' history of innovation and development of consumer home entertainment systems offering exceptional performance. The award-winning company is widely recognised as a world leader in high-quality audio and video reproduction. Meridian developed the first audiophile CD player, the world's first consumer digital surround controller and the world's first digital loudspeaker.

MQA was launched to an enthusiastic reception from the consumer electronics and music industries on 4 December 2014 in a presentation at London's "Shard".

The partnership, announced today, means that 7digital will adopt MQA and become the first digital music platform provider to offer this high quality audio format for both downloads and streaming. It follows recent announcements of contracts with Panasonic and Onkyo to develop new High Resolution music services.

Simon Cole, CEO of 7digital, commented:

"MQA is a revolutionary new development in the journey towards serving consumers the purest high resolution digital files. MQA, which will be available in early 2015, delivers the quality of original studio recordings so cleverly and efficiently that it can be conveniently streamed or downloaded. We feel extremely privileged to have been involved so closely with the Meridian team right through the R&D stage, lending our own considerable and longstanding experience in high quality digital music services to the process. I truly believe MQA will become the standard for high quality streaming."

Meridian Audio Co-Founder Bob Stuart said:

"MQA is an important development that transforms music listening. MQA brings the listener every nuance and detail and the excitement of the live performance sound. Authenticity is not compromised for convenience. 7digital's commitment to excellence and to sound quality makes them a natural partner for MQA. Their team have been untiring supporters of this revolution and we are excited about the launch of this platform."
