Okay. I Admittedly did not read through all pages of this thread so I doubt the following comments will add to whatever has been said. I enjoy Spotify far better than Tidal. The interface is far superior and I find tracks Tidal lacks. Spotify’s lack of a hi fi option concerns me as a consumer of music. Truth be told, the overwhelming majority of listeners cannot perceive or differentiate lossless from lossy. It may, in fact, be nearly impossible to do so listening through Beats or Bose headphones. In addition, many older tracks were not recorded in high quality resolution..
Nevertheless, for those who can tell the difference–or think they can–and are willing to pay a high premium, Spotify’s denial of hi fi service is reflective of a hostile customer attitude. I suppose some might argue that Spotify are doing subscribers a favor by not offering an unnecessary service at a costly premium most people will not benefit from. I believe that is false. Spotify’s extensive music library is functionally an international archive of history which should be offered in the highest quality possible.
I'm also waiting for HIFI from Spotify. Tried TIDAL and it was nice but have lots of playlists in Spotify and don't want to loose it ... Please if anyone from Spotify hears me please give me an invitation.
