RE: Qobuz Reduces Prices Outside of USA

" It's interesting that HDTracks is sending me more download discount offers than ever before. I wonder if they're feeling the pain with the shift toward streaming vs downloads?"

Around two years ago there was a lot of news about a forthcoming streaming service from them ( HDStreams ?) which was to rely upon the use of MQA. Nothing further seems to have been heard about it.

I removed myself from their weekly listings as they do not compete on price with Sublime+ and their offerings seemed mainly in the pop/rock field which is generally not my thing. Further quite a few things which caught my attention through inmates mentioning them were not available in my country.

Yes, streaming is a direct substitution for downloads and it will be interesting to see the industry revenue figures for 2019 when they are released.
