Access to Premium trial for Unlimited subscribers

I'm an Unlimited subscriber, and I'd like to know if higher bitrate audio will make a significant difference, given my sound setup. If it does, the result will be that I pay Spotify twice as much every month.

 

Spotify has run a 30 day (or 60-day, if you timed it right,) Premium trial in the past, but only to non-subscribers. This seems a bit silly -- don't you want customers to upgrade their service?

 

Alternately, you could post a few snippets of music in both 160k and 320k Ogg Vorbis, available for streaming to anyone through the Spotify app. This could help people make the decsion as to which service they prefer.

"Initially, not all tracks will be available at the higher bit rate. We’ve begun converting the most...

 

So... what, exactly does this mean in 2013? 20%? 50%? 75%?  I don't listen to a lot of very popular music. Does this mean that a Premium subscription would be largely pointless for me?


Thanks for listening.

You have posted a quote from over three years ago. All tracks are now available at high bitrate.
