Spotify is one of the most popular streaming services in the world. Until then, it could not offer users a high-quality music subscription (currently, the maximum quality is 320 kbps). Simultaneously, competitors such as Amazon, Tidal, and Deezer have such a service available. But Spotify will soon have something to offer hi-fi lovers.
During its online event Stream On, the company announced the launch of a Spotify HiFi subscription. It aims to “provide users with music in CD-quality, uncompressed lossless audio format that will allow users to experience greater depth and clarity while listening to their favorite tracks.“
Spotify did not specify the cost of the HiFi subscription, only notes that the service will be available “later this year in a limited number of markets.” For clarity, Amazon Music HD is priced at $14.99/mo, Tidal HiFi is priced at $19.99/mo, and Deezer HiFi is priced at €5.99/mo.
