Recommend me an option to buy

Hi im looking for a stereo receiver or integrated amplifier mqa capable and ht bypass. I will connect to my marantz with pre outs for front speaker.
There is an other option to go to a integrated amplifier with ht bypass and add some mqa capable dac like pro ject pre box s2 digital or the bluesound node 2i.
There is something like im looking for??

Using google I found this list of integrateds that support MQA. They are: Bel canto blue sound, cary audio, Hegel, Krell, mark Levinson, NAD, Technics.

List was here:

https://www.mqa.co.uk/how-to-get-mqa

Most of these are pretty expensive, NAD, is probably most affordable. I didn't take the next step and go look up which of these supports HT bypass. Google is your friend.

Does MQA make a real difference to music or it's just a certification label?

Its lossy...

Personal opinion: when they do a good job remastering or using a good master it is good but that would be good on normal cd also, not to mention actual lossless high rez files.
It might be well meaning but its still a money grab in all links of the chain for a copy protection no consumer wants without actually giving us true high rez. We dont really need high rez above cd/dvd, what we need is quality work from recording/mastering/production. Really well made CDs sound incredible, better than mqa and high rez from most masters where they didnt do a really good job, which is most of them unfortunatly.

Probably it will have some "exclusive" releases to lure people into it, so yes, it might if you want those releases.

The new Arcam SA30 has MQA, HT bypass, and Dirac Live room correction.

A nice integrated with HT bypass might be a good upgrade mqa or not. Im not sure what speakers you have currently so its hard to say, i really like good electronics but speakers do make the biggest difference so i suppose it depends on how you like your speakers because an actual upgrade might be the more expensive option and a sidegrade is usually wasted money.

I’m considering the Anthem STR Integrated to do similar to what you’re proposing. It has HT BYPASS, the most sophisticated 2 channel implementation of ARC room correction, and tons of power. I’m considering swapping my Sonos Connect for the Node 2i.

If the OP's budget it up to 1000 dollars, then the Anthem STR is out. It's a bit over 4 grand.
