It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: I'm still trying to understand the French...

The English version says:

The Qobuz family has a new member: Sublime+. Streaming and unlimited offline listening in 24-Bit Hi-Res on almost all of our 70 000 Hi-Res albums, with discounts all year round on instant downloads: Sublime+ is setting the standards for online music.

So 70K it is.

As for format, many tracks delivered to record companies from the studios will be 24/44.1. This is now an outdated format to the extent that the minimum advisable studio/client format recognised by the AES is 24/96.

Note that some titles would appear to offer under 24 bits if 24 bits are for "almost" all.The almost seems to be 90% of the 70K, given the French version of the wording. So there must be some 18 or 20 bit tracks there to qualify as hi-rez. In respect of sample rate, other than the 44.1 tracks ( I suspect largely pop genre), there are a few 88.2 and, I expect, a large number of 24/96. As for above this and < 192 I doubt that there are many.

Qobuz have claimed elsewhere "over 30 million tracks" . The numbers do not add up.
