What happened to Spotify HiFi ??
Hi All,

Earlier this year (March ?) it was mooted that Spotify would increase it's audio resolution beyond 320kbps. Were now into December and I've not heard anything, at all, about this actually happening. Anybody have any news on this?

But whatever - I'm still loving the Spotify/DS integration Smile

Got fed up waiting. Went for Tidal in the end, and very happy with their improving catalogue and superior sound.

I usually only notice the difference after a while. The music from Spotify just bores me sooner then when I'm using tidal (I have both now).

I am missing the social networking facilities that Spotify has though.

I spoke to a friend at Spotify (who must remain nameless). Its not happening any time soon, if ever. They've got loads on the roadmap and this isn't a priority for them. Sorry.

This is a great pity. Tell your friend that it is a priority for quite a few folks - myself included - who are sticking with Spotify, hoping for HiRes. Also tell him, no-one asked me if I'd pay more for HiRes (which I would). I'd like to see this question asked occasionally when I use Spotify (which I do frequently). If they don't have many folks "put a tick in the box" then of course they've made the right decision to continue supplying a good, rather than a great product, but I would like to be asked rather than told which it will be.

The market for lossless streaming is too small to bother with. Tidal might be bankrupt soon and who knows if Qobuz or Deezer will survive.
