Yes, my issue exactly. The more I upgrade my audio from my studio monitors, car audio equipment, headphones, etc. the more I'm noticing Spotify's clearly inferior sound quality. I'd pay nearly whatever they needed to charge for ACTUAL Hi-Fidelity streams across the desktop and mobile apps. I don't want to switch, I really don't, but me and lots of others may have to just to keep up.

Spotify is going to loose the streaming battle with the others quite soon, if they don't do anything with lossless.
I find it really opportunistic they're not listening to us, the people that helped Spotify build as what it is now. I also know that a lot of tv broadcasting services offer Spotify Premium for free, that's how they got so many members and are not worried about the on and off questions and complaints regarding lossless.
Spotify, you really need to step up your game and start listening to us, the Premium members. Add lossless for a couple of bucks and keep us informed about the progress regarding this, otherwise the guys of Qobuz, Amazon and Tidal will win this battle and you will loose loads of members. Please guys, keep in mind, the no.1 importancy is streaming quality, not a flashy UI.
Update to my lossless audio comment - in October, I tried a 3 month trial of tidal, after 2 weeks, I cancelled my spotify subscription, and will not be looking back unless spotify makes some major changes. If anyone from spotify reads this, you just lost yet another customer who was willing to spend more for a better service that wouldn't cost you much to implement. It's time you adapt to the times, or become irrelevant line myspace or vine.
