I want to ditch TIDAL so bad. TIDAL UI sucks, absolutelly sucks.

 

Can you imagine not being able to jump to the list that is currently playing!

 

Give me losless and it's good by TIDAL.

TIDAL isn't that bad for the UI. It's not as good as Spotify nor as compatible with devices/streaming...But it's not horrible. The real thing that Spotify needs to be aware of is that the recordings are usually better on TIDAL. This has nothing to do with the bitrate/lossless aspect of things. I think the 320kbps is fine to be frank -- what you can't fix with increasing the bitrate is the junk recording that you got. There are serveral versions of the same song and they are not all created equal.

 

EVEN WITHIN Spotify you'll see the same song (differen't album) at different qualities. TIDAL simply has more tracks with better recordings. Maybe it's the studio and the masters. Maybe its the way in which the songs were digitized. I'm not sure, but even with a higher bitrate, there's going to be a lot of distorted songs left on Spotify. So all you'll be doing is paying more money for the same thing.

 

This isn't in all cases of course. I do think it's great to have the option for a higher bitrate...It will benefit some songs...But right now it's too spotty. I'd rather see Spotify invest time and money into getting better recordings first.

Me encantaria recibir musica sin perdidas de momento seguire utlizando Tidal, si algun dia deciden ofrecer musica sin perdidas me cambiare, pero de momento lo que ofrece Tidal es muy superior en calidad.

In the same boat here. I've recently tried Tidal HiFi ( and although the service is not perfect) I will be quiting my Spotify subscription unless they can give us a lossless option as well.

Right now I have a Spotify Free account  and I pay for a lossless audio service. Why? Because I want the best audio that is available to me. When Spotify goes lossless I will upgrade my account and use it. Until then I will stick with the other service that is lossless - despite its glitches and inferior interface.

Here's the bottom line: Spotify will have no choice but to go lossless. The internet infrastructure and the mobile infrastructure is capable now. And so competitors, both established and potential start-ups, smell blood and will start to more and more exploit Spotify's Achilles heel (compressed music). This will result in lossless becoming ubiquitous, and those services that dont have it will start (and I would suggest, already are) becoming the but of peoples jokes. Albeit slowly, the lossless train is starting to roll and now there's no stopping the trend. It IS going to happen. My only advice to Spotify would be to get on this quick before they start losing market share.

Audiophiles and/or people who can afford the best are not going to listen to compressed music - period.
