Got a Question Concerning YouTube and Other Services
« on: August 22, 2020, 07:40:46 PM »
Actually two questions.

1. Is there that much sonic difference between my YT Premium and other services out there?

2. YouTube has so many selections, covers; do the other services compare? I like everything
you see in my string "Sharing top notch, music links" in "Music Discussion" Forum.

Cheers and thanks Gents.

Had a friend come over this evening with his lab top and checked into Tidal on his and my computer. Interesting experience.

1. Concerning point one, the fidelity was better on the well recorded selections. But it was rare to find a great recording. May be
more time and selections?

2. Problem is TD did not have many of the selections I like but were available on YT.

I would guesstimate that other services are similar to Tidal?

Of course one has to play the selection through their reproduction system, which is just as important as the recording.

cheers

I listen to YouTube audio recordings all the time via maybe 5-10 audiophile sites. Ill then do a search on Roon (I subscribe to both Tidal and Qobuz...CD quality) to see if I can find what was on YouTube. Content on Tidal and Qobuz does overlap quite a bit, but there is wonderful unique content on each. The dual subscriptions are a little treat for me  :thumb: 🎶

Premium has so many selections I like, will just stick with that.

Here is a unique song, maybe for those gaining a little weight due to the pandemic. Hands up here.
