Question on pricing

The OP stated that Sublime+ cost about 1/3 more than Sublime, which is €220 per year (currently about $242). That would put Sublime+ at roughly about $320 per year, which is about $27 per month.

Assuming these numbers are accurate, true high-res from Qobuz costs more than the lossy-compressed high-res (MQA) from Tidal. However if the 65,000 albums quoted by the OP is accurate, that is over 100x the number of MQA albums currently available on Tidal. Plus there is no need to purchase new hardware for decoding. The extra $7 per month for Qobuz Supreme+ would seem less expensive than buying a new DAC, plus there are apparently far more titles available. Clearly the situation is changing rapidly. The MQA announcement at CES seemed significant, but the Qobuz announcement at Munich may be even more significant. What will the next major audio show bring?

As always, strictly my opinion and not those of my employer, friends, family, or neighborhood raccoons.
