[All Platforms][Music] HiFi Quality - Lossless Streaming 16bit 44.1khz

I've just started a trial of Qobuz - they offer the standard 320kbps as well as lossless FLAC streaming (and high res downloads if you purchase them) the sound quality is noticeably better and on classical it's just wonderful to get all that resolution through your hi-fi or headphones! The catalogue has a way to go to get to Spotify's level, but they are getting there. The iPad app isn't' too bad (the desktop app is in need of an upgrade but I hear they are putting all their efforts into mobile apps right now).
So - lossless streaming - if Qobuz can do it then so can Spotify, they must have the same source - and obviously if you are asking £20 a month then those record labels and distributors take enough notice to make the high res tracks available for streaming. What this all means is soon, very soon, we will get lossless streaming and closely followed by high res downloads - but if Spotify aren't careful it will be Apple who get there first with an audiophile premium offering, and when they do it will be a much harder market place to make money in!

Hey folks,


We know that HiFi quality audio is important to you. We feel the same, and we’re excited to deliver a Spotify HiFi experience to Premium users in the future. But we don’t have timing details to share yet.


We will of course update you here when we can.


Take care.


Why you shouldn’t really choose a music streaming service just by the supposed rate they pay the artist’s:  This still does not excuse Spotify’s attitudes both toward artists and customers. Only a mass exodus from Spotify would kick their ass into maybe actually offering HiFi if it wasn’t too late and they actually went out of business instead. Time to scare Spotify!!!


I have an idea. Why not offering music in hifi quality? 


I hate it so much that you are completely helpless as a user if big corporations ignore your wishes. Still no HIFI available, it is absolutely hilarious.

You're not helpless. Vote with your wallet. Use a free service to transfer
your playlists, and join another service.



Spotify is awefully quiet on the matter, so they don't care about the customers that are being lost to other services.


here we go again...


This new Supertier/Hifi has been buzzing around a lot in the last week, I get the feeling (though I'm probably wrong) that it's soon to be announced.... c'mon Spotify put us out of our misery! 🙂 


It feels so close..

How much longer can they make us wait?


How much longer can they make us wait?

Until they finally give up licking their wounds that Apple and most other platforms beat them in the HiFi race. In fact Spotify are still to finish over 2 years after they fired the starting gun.

A bunch of useless tw_ats
