I could post on the thread about buying music, streamers etc.. but hope that people will share their experience specifically about Tidal. After initially signing up for Tidal lossless, trying it, and then discovering Spotify premium, I completely dismissed Tidal and went with Spotify, and now.. I am firmly on Tidal. Nothing wrong with Spotify, it a very good streaming service, and that includes SQ, it is just that Tidal works better for me. He is why: When I started a critical listening to the same tracks on Spotify premium and Tidal (lossless and master) , and my own ripped CDs, it did not take me long to realize that Tidal sounded just a touch better with my desktop setup.It was not much, for mobile streaming, different type of music, maybe less picky headphones, I do not believe I would hear any difference at all. And I started from the position that I would rather be with Spotify. I listen mostly to classical music at my desk and to compare I picked a reasonably complex piece Rachmaninov Piano Concerto nr 1, first part. My setup was: Tidal or Spotify client on Win 8.1 -> Mimby or Teac UD-501, USB or Toslink, dual mono Nuforce HA-200 and HD800S. In a nutshell, through various combinations piano on Tidal always sounded more natural, bass had more control, and the music was better pronounced and clearer. Not much at all but enough. There are more reasons I decided on Tidal: 1. Better, at least to my taste, classical library 2. Support for DNLA: I could easily select JRiver or RPi Digi+ Runeaudio as a renderer. Spotify connect is very restrictive 3. And last but not least, the Tidal client will let you select the audio output and has better control of the Win 8 audio. I am consistently disappointed with JRiver, less with Foobar, on Win 8.1 but the only way I can get USB to play without even occasional stuttering is through Tidal client. It hurts to pay twice as much but, at least for a time, I decided to stick with Tidal.
