MAAT has announced the release of their first consumer product aimed at the playback of High Res Audio streams and files.

MAAT Incorporated, a California manufacturer of professional audio solutions, has announced the release of a cross platform plug–in and native application for routing, matrixing and visualization of digital audio.  MAATgo is the debut of MAAT’s first product designed specifically for hifi enthusiasts but can also be used professionally.

Building on the foundations of MAAT’s 2BusControl and GŌN plug–ins, the new MAATgo is designed to augment and enhance the audiophile user experience

MAAT told us: “MAATgo combines the routing, visualization and control of touchstone component separates with additional matrixing modes and a precision balance adjustment for complete control of file–based “computer audio” playback and HRA (high resolution audio) on–demand delivery services”.

Addressing the needs of the home hifi listener was not undertaken lightly at MAAT. The features that those striving for the highest fidelity sound reproduction would want in their systems became the basis for the product. “High resolution file and streaming playback on computers in the home has become mainstream, yet consumers have lost essential controls that were available to them when traditional hardware was in vogue,” said Friedemann Tischmeyer, mastering engineer and CEO of MAAT. “We aim to bring that control back to audio aficionados everywhere.”

High Res Audio

The product is delivered in all modern plug–in formats, including cross–platform VST 2 and 64 bit VST 3 as well as a Universal Binary 2 AU for macOS. In addition to the plug–in, which is supported by top flight, audio–only players like Amarra and Audirvana, MAATgo also includes a “native” or standalone application for use with HRA streaming through services such as TIDAL and Qobuz. Sample rates up to 384 kHz are supported for top echelon HRA content.

MAATgo Price And Availability

Perpetual licenses for MAATgo are available now, from MAAT at $24, £22, 26€ and a 14-day free trial is available.
