With 345 million users, Spotify is number 1 in the music streaming segment. In terms of audio quality, however, the Swedes have not yet had a top position. Spotify only achieves a maximum bit rate of 320 kbit / s on the desktop and mobile apps. In the future, however, they want to offer lossless streams in CD quality under the name Spotify Hifi. That would correspond to a bit rate of 1,411 kbit / s.

music streaming: competition already offers higher quality

lossless streams in CD quality represent a significant improvement for Spotify, but other streaming providers have long since made progress. Both the Tidal streaming service from the rapper and businessman Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter as well as Amazon Music HD and the French provider Qobuz offer streams in an even higher quality. Deezer, on the other hand, at least offers CD quality.

All these providers are paying a little for the higher audio quality: Deezer, for example, charges 14.99 euros per month instead of the usual 9.99 euros for streams in CD quality. At Tidal, the price rises from the customary 9.99 euros to 19.99 euros per month. In return, customers are at least partially offered studio quality music. The bit rate in this case is between 2,304 and 9,126 kbit / s.
