Why does Tidal sound better?
As a subscriber to Tidal I use it on my DS but I also enjoy their app in my iphone. How is it that it sounds better than Spotify? I have noticed ‘‘ this many times listening to the same track. Of course it is the same on the DS too.

This is most likely due Tidal streaming lossless FLAC in CD-quality and Spotify streaming a lossy MP3 version.

If you think that’s good you you should try Quboz Sublime +, you’ll love it.
