Streaming providers Tidal and Amazon Music have been offering a subscription model for quite some time, which shines with music in hi-fi quality. Now Spotify wants to follow suit. The market leader among the streaming services promises lossless music that is supposed to exceed the previous quality maximum of 320 kbit/s by far. Since Spotify now also wants to offer this option, Apple Music, as one of the leading providers, has to take a significant hit. After all, the Californian company’s music service does not yet offer optional HiFi quality.
New HiFi option still 2021
The Swedish streaming service is looking to launch Spotify HiFi later this year. This option is said to be able to offer nothing less than „lossless CD quality.“ However, the company is still holding back with further details. Possibly it is because the goal of said CD quality cannot keep up with the quality of the competition. After all, it would „only“ be a data rate of 1,411 kbit/s.
