Cirrus Logic Inc. has incorporated Microsoft's Windows Media Audio 9 Professional (WMA Pro) decoder onto its flagship CS49520 audio DSP. WMA 9 Pro is a new high-performance audio codec that supports better-than-CD-quality resolution and targets 5.1 and 7.1 channel surround sound playback.

Warren Rhee, manager of digital audio product marketing, Cirrus Logic, stated, "Microsoft has shown Cirrus Logic great teamwork to enable us to once again take a leadership role in helping audio/video receiver manufacturers differentiate their consumer AVR systems by providing their tremendous WMA Pro codec as the industry prepares for the upcoming tidal wave of high definition audio and video content."
