[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.

They've just changed the layout of the "your account" site. No hi res plan yet, but I feel it's close...

C'mon Spotify... we know Supremium is coming - get on with it!

Very lame excuse to increase price..which has lead a lot of paying customers to other services.

Just give us the lossless and possible hires at the current price. Or we shall go to other places.

The forums are heating up with the Supremium [sic] leak. Ok, Spotify, it’s time. At least make a statement. When? Ever? Never? Q4? 2024? Come on now.

So... I was hoping with the investor/subscriber news today they might announce "Supremium" etc. but no news again...... ... boring.
