    This Tidal vs Qobuz topic has been discussed in many forums. But, I was curious what SL listeners feel about the SQ of the two main streaming services. Some say Spotify Premium is better than Tidal. What do you all think?

    I subscribe to both and use Roon. SQ about the same- both very good, so much so it’s my main source. If I search in Roon, it will offer up choices from either or both.

    Do you think there is noticeable difference between hi-rez and CD quality either source? I heard that most people can’t tell the difference.

    It depends on the recording. Regular CD can sound great when engineered well. HiRez can sound poorly when not well done. Great HiRez can be extremely good, better than most CD. Of course, if your system is not great, you might not be able to tell the difference easily. My digital playback has evolved and improved greatly over the years. (Keces LPS powering Roon Nucleus and ethernet switch >Fiber Optic conversion >Lumin X-1) Everything matters!

    Lumin x1 is around $10,000. Do you think it is worth the cost? I am using Lumin U1 mini.
