As I understand it, MQA provides better sound quality at a low bit rate stream. 16 / 44.1 in this format sounds as Hi-rez audio. This is a technology for online music libraries, such as Tidal and so on. And these services are becoming more popular.

Here is a link with the same chart noted in the post above with a bit more information.

I have Tidal and have listened to software decoded and it sounds quite good.  It would be very cool to add send my Tidal or Audirvana stream directly through my Hilo for maximum sound quality.
