I didn't realize that LG was working this closely with Meridian to enable a lot of their upcoming audio equipment with MQA. I saw MQA enabled sound bars, a streaming boombox called xboomgo, earphones, headphones and even some furniture - like a side table which also plays music! The LG XBOOMGO actually has a qualcomm aptXHD chip which will do 24 bit decoding of MQA files.

It won't do decoding (exactly) 'cause aptXHD is lossy (I think bitrate is something around 600Kbps).
MQA decoding will happen on your device (1st unfold) and that signal will be downsampled to lossy 44.1/24.

Technically it's better I guess, having more info to play with when downsampling.
