Any update? I tried Tidal when it was free with Sprint. I enjoyed the more detailed sound, but not so much their interface and playlists. That being said, I'm thinking of going back unless Spotify improves its music quality. If there is still a beta version, add me to it.
I'm on the verge of jumping ship to Tidal or Qobuz for this reason. I recently invested almost 10K into an insane HiFi / HC setup and there's no way I'm pumping 320 through it. I'm already signed up to both Tidal and Qobuz and I expect to chose one of these two within a month or two.
But this will be with a heavy heart. I've been using Spotify for a long time now and I'm not impressed with the competion. The interfaces aren't as good, nor is the content curation/suggestions. As for the music, no one service seems as eclectic as Spotify. Tidal's classical music offering is basically s**t. Qobuz is good for classical and less popular stuff but has huge holes in their library. I won't be able to blast Sunn O))) in the small hours - although I'm sure the neighbours won't be particularly upset!
When Tidal started making waves, I had assumed that Spotify would **bleep** this in the bud and quickly provide a lossless subscription. Years later and still nothing! So if there is a lossless trial currently running, for the love of god sign me up please!
Try Deezer. Good library of HiFi tracks. I still have Spotify for my wife and times where I'm using a device that just has it...but for me that's the only reason I see Spotify as any good - because it had such a high penetration rate. Every device out there works with Spotify. If you're after quality, it's just not on Spotify. That's not their game.
