LMG Group Introduces New MQA Processing Technologies

Lenbrook Media Group (LMG), specialists in high-resolution audio, has announced a suite of products from the newly formed MQA Labs that bring audio processing enhancements across the music supply chain.

AIRIA by MQA Labs (also known by its technical name, SCL6) delivers high-resolution audio while seamlessly scaling from full lossless to very lossy rates. LMG boasts FOQUS by MQA Labs represents an innovative approach for analog to digital conversion. QRONO by MQA Labs brings a variety of audio processing enhancements within playback devices. These technologies are expected to debut in a variety of licensee products before the end of calendar 2025.

“These developments confirm our instincts around this team and the value of the IP. While the choice and accessibility of MQA content remains a priority ​ for us, this was never about a single codec,” says Gordon Simmonds, CEO of The Lenbrook Group.

New MQA Technologies Designed to Improve Audio Performance

The company points out the creation of MQA Labs and its newest product families reflect Lenbrook’s passion to improve the whole audio chain and bring the highest quality recording, distribution and playback technologies to benefit the entire specialty audio industry.

“The digitization of an analogue signal introduces a range of imperfections to the resulting audio file. One of the most common and critical is something often referred to as time smearing – when the resolution of two sounds is reduced because their timing is incorrectly reproduced within the digital file,” explains Greg Stidsen, chief technology officer at Lenbrook. “MQA Labs’ team are experts in time-domain audio improvements, having invented many of the techniques to avoid or eliminate such audio defects.” ​

LMG emphasizes that two of the new product families will address common home audio issues. FOQUS will tackle the analog to digital processes, and QRONO will address the conversion of digital back to analog.

The third product family, the company continues, is among the most anticipated of LMG’s future products. Previously known by its technical name, SCL6, it is a new codec that is said to ensure the best resolution possible regardless of bandwidth availability. Now named AIRIA by MQA Labs, the codec was developed to transform audio across wireless connections. Most recently, LMG successfully completed pilots for use as a distribution codec, which could be used for applications such as streaming services. ​

“We are inspired by the reactions of our partners who are incorporating these technologies into their products,” explains Mike Jbara, Vice President & GM of LMG. “This is a milestone moment for us. We are committed to receiving and applying feedback from the market in how we apply our technologies and ensuring they are more flexible and accessible throughout the music supply chain.” ​
