TIDAL US still has more of the content I listen to than Qobuz US, but Qobuz isn’t yet out of beta and has more accessible Hi-Res Audio than TIDAL (HR FLAC vs HR MQA). I already subscribe to TIDAL HiFI/Master and am about to pull the trigger on an annual Qobuz Sublime+ subscription.
During my Qobuz trial, I’ve purchased over $100 of Hi-Res Audio albums that I didn’t even know were available in Hi-Res, and I figure if I purchase anywhere near that rate over the next year, Sublime will almost pay for itself in dollars saved on purchases.
So $45/month or $500 annually for much overlapping content, HR streaming through a Meridian Explorer2, discounted purchase power and incredible choices in Roon.
Stupid? Smart? Or just plain crazy?
