Hello! I would like to try tidal and have my own opinion. But I don't know about these plans to stay, I've seen them here. Someone here who has already used it and can guide me a little please. Thank you

My story is somewhat complicated... I was a Tidal HiFi user from Jan'16 - first got a one-year subscription with an Auralic streamer and stayed with it... In mid-2020 I converted to family Tidal (still hifi, for my needs/desires) - to separate music preferences of my wife, both kids and mine (4 of us total)... However, in Oct'20 I essentially left tidal - downgraded the service to [below-hifi] "premium" as my family did not mind (and still are the Tidal users). While I myself moved to hi-res Qobuz.

Tidal drove me away by their ongoing push to (a) restrict access of non-MQA-certified apps/HW to their MQA content and (b) their apparent transition to MQA-only hifi offering. As I enjoy and cherish my non-MQA DACs, though I also own two MQA-capable ones.

Well, there is usually a month or more free trial or at least trial for a couple of $$ so why not give it a go. That link looks to be a bit dodgy, even translated to english its not much good. I would just go to official tidal site and see the offers in your territory.
