RE: Qobuz classical & jazz streaming service

Thanks for the suggestion about Qubuz. I did spend a couple of hours exploring the service and my impression is that it is much to complicated and not a good value. I did manage to sign up despite not being in Europe and finally without a vpn. It had the annoying issue of constantly shifting back from English to French.

It is similar to all the other services that are pop focused in that classical is a poor stepchild. So for $15/ mo you get to download 24 bit hi-rez for the price of a RBCD. Clearly, the service is primarily set up for phone/ear bud listening not a serious hi- rez layout. The advantage to me of a real pure streaming service is you get to listen and explore lots of new music, some you will never listen to again, and some you will enjoy over and over again, all for a reasonable monthly fee.

If you are interested in the future Chandos service, email and ask to be put on the beta testing program in the USA.
