    Tidal HiFi vs Spotify Premium? Can you hear the difference?

    Hi guys. I am a Tidal user (HiFi only) and contemplating a move to Spotify. The reason is that I don’t like Tidal’s playlist management. It’s very annoying. I was wondering if you could hear the difference between Tidal (CD Quality) and Spotify premium which is 320. These two are my only...

    How can I check the quality of an audio stream?

    Hi, There are now many offerings of online audio streaming services. Someone gives access to their catalog, someone broadcasts, someone takes money for it, and someone does not. If I pay, then I want to be sure that the service meets the declared quality. For example, now I am a Spotify...

    Topping E30 DAC & Spotify

    Hello, everyone! I am very new to DACs and hi-fi systems in general. I have a Topping E30 DAC on the way which I will be connecting to my PC (Windows 10). I have the Edifier r1280db for my speakers which already has a built-in class D amplifier. Lastly, I will be streaming my music mainly from...

    Opinions on the music-discovery performance of current streaming services (and how to get the most out of them)?

    Sure, we all have a stash of cd rips and high-res content that was repeatedly vetted and benchmarked on various gear... But nothing compares to the thrill of hearing something for the first time that fits so perfectly in the moment. As someone who does ml by day (outside the entertainment...

    Anyone have their own private cloud audio streaming service

    I can't do subscription services and their changing copyrights. I have a couple of decades worth of my old rips + my bandcamp purchases (the best music service aroud for someone like me) + downloads that come with physical media. And I'm not talking about music services that let you upload your...

    Sound quality: Spotify Premium vs Qobuz. Convince Spotify very high quality has good enough sound quality.

    Spotify Hifi should be released later this year. I don't know its pricing or if it will be available in my country, but it probably will be the best streaming service for me if it's available here. However, I don't have that choice now so I will be choosing between Spotify Premium and Qobuz. My...

    Regarding the sound differences between Spotify, Tidal, and YouTube on web/desktop/mobile

    I started a Tidal trial on mobile a few weeks ago and was impressed with the (ostencibly) more enjoyable sound than that of Spotify. After numerous listens between the services and on different devices, I set out to understand why Spotify and Tidal sound different. The following comparisons are...

    Network streamer or a better DAC

    Hi, I purchased the Topping E30 based on the good reviews, so far really enjoy this DAC, but I have a question and hope you can help. I have two input sources: CD and streaming, and three setups to listen to music: (1) CD: Teac CD-P1260 (only RCA output, no optical or coaxial, 1-bit Dual D/A...

    I feel like HEOS is overlooked!

    Hi all, I have now owned 3 Denon / Marantz receivers with HEOS (3500, 3600, and SR6012). I always discounted it as a solution for the lazy or as a Sonos replacement, never thinking it was up to snuff for my “serious” (lol) listening practices. I previously used a Chromecast Audio into a DAC...

    Tidal vs. Deezer vs. Qobuz vs. Spotify vs. Apple Music

    I'm into choosing between Tidal and Deezer and I guess I'll stick with Tidal due to being the only Hi-Fi (CD Quality) service that has a Family Plan. Yes, unfortunately Deezer Hi-Fi has no Family Plan, quite a bad marketing I'd say. Tidal Hi-Fi (16-bit, 1,411 Kbps) - No roll-off up to 20KHz...
