I ran into him in the Tidal speaker room and later in the day when heading out.  I never saw them at the booth they had setup 😀.  No indication on when the official rollout is going to happen.  I am wondering if the hold up is licensosgreement or they are waiting for Roon integration to be compiled.

Even though the hardware and streaming companies are not connected, it is rather ironic that you caught up to him in the Tidal room.   :-k

Yeah, we got to chatting about it and the speaker pronounces Tidal as Teedal or something along that line 😂

I have 3 more codes for 2-month trial, that I picked up @ NY Audio Show today.  They are going to be available until end of day next Saturday.  If they are not claimed I will pass it along to the local audio society members  :thumb:

I believe you have both Tidal and Qobuz and, if so, pls compare if you have time

I only have Qobuz and my trial is going to expire shortly  :duh (mid Feb).  I hope Qobuz is available soon.

Qobuz is a cluster fuck right now . I realize it's beta but....
Lots of it not working.  Compared to Spotify it's louder just like Tidal.
Making it tough to compare. Very limited library. They got work to do.
We'll see, if I keep it or just go to Tidal ( cheaper) or stay with Spotify.
I only stream for new music.

I've been using Qobuz beta for about 3 weeks now.   I primarily use it through Roon and I have to say I'm quite impressed.   Sure, they've still got some kinks to work out but I'm pretty happy with it.  Of course, I liked Tidal integration with Roon as well but eventually stopped that service.   Time will tell if I stick with Qobuz, but I do love how it's integrated with Roon and I'm extremely happy with Roon.
