Here are some official links:
In French, but easy to make out what is being offered.
And check out this stellar review from What HiFif from last year:
and press release:
I can tell you as a supplier, Qobuz has an enormous catalog, including many very rare rock and pop records in 24 bit, some only available there.
This totally destroys the bandwidth myth, one of MQA's big selling points.
Aside from the totally unproven and bold assertions that MQA sounds better than the lossless master file it was created from, there is literally no reason for it to exist.
Sprint is going to have to answer for this..how a little start up in France can offer full 24/192 resolution streaming with no proprietary compression, and they as a major telecom company and 50% owner of Tidal, cannot.
Yes, plus Qobuz' new interface which resembles Roon with artist biogs, track data down to other artists on the track, producer even engineer. Plus full CD booklet.
I have had a play with Tidal here at the show and was quite disappointed particularly with their classical music offering. I never knew Star Wars was classical music until Tidal ;-)
I have been a Qobuz member for 5 years and absolutely love it. They have had their growing pains but they really do a great job.
Qobuz is also integrated in quite a few DLNA control apps.
Thumbs up for their new service.
when will it be available in the USA..?
Isaak J. Has some practical advice. As for Qobuz coming to the USA, it isn't even available in all EU countries yet let alone all Europe.
I have heard in the past that they did not come to the USA because they have been on the verge of bankruptcy. Do not know what there current financial status is
Yes, that was two years ago. They had to find a new owner and have it approved by the French courts ( they are a French company) in December 2015. This they did but I do not know who rescued them.
Very easy to sign up. I emailed them and told them I regularly travel between Europe and the USA and 24 hours later I had an account. A dozen or so friends of have done this as well. I have also had friends who are European citizens here working for extended periods and they were given accounts.
Or, very easy to use a proxy.
