Home Hi-Rez Highway

New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

Truth in Advertising?

From the Qobus Sublime+ web site introduction: "Sublime+ offers access to more than 90% of the Qobuz Hi-Res catalogue of over 70 000 albums, but also to the rest of the Qobuz catalogue, i.e. 40 million tracks in 16-Bit FLAC quality (CD quality, lossless)."

I guess my real gripe is with the statement that 90% of the total Hi-Rez catalog is accessible. That means, to me, for streaming. That is what their selling, a streaming service not a download sales catalog. In classical, for me, they do not come close to 90%. Maybe there is a chance of hitting 90% if you count all those albums mislabeled as 24 bit but really are not available for streaming at the advertised resolution.

"With Sublime+ you can choose the quality that's right for you at any time: with streaming and offline importing alike." Another quote form their pitch.
