TIDAL HiFi and Sonos

I wondered if yesterday’s TIDAL HiFi North America launch would compel me to subscribe to TIDAL HiFi.

TIDAL HiFi is Lossless High Fidelity sound quality. High definition music videos. Expertly curated editorial.

Plus I am all for the artist and their receiving higher royalty payments that Spotify, well actually the record labels pay musicians. Spotify and the labels pay artists with an eye dropper.

The TIDAL solution enhancement I had anticipated was announced as part of TIDAL’s relaunch yesterday. TIDAL HiFi and Sonos have an engineering/product partnership.

I am considering taking the plunge to buy a Sonos Play:1 ($199) and a TIDAL HiFi account ($19.99 a month). This is definitely the way to go for high-fidelity wireless music. The best part is that I plan to use Web monetization to pay for this transaction. 🙂 Thank you WordPress and WordAds.

I can even play TIDAL HiFi Offline through my Honda sound system via my iPhone and Bluetooth.

  1. I personally will not be subscribing to Tidal because I am a college student who doesn’t have $20 a month to subscribe. Also I feel as fans we spend so much on merchandise, music, concerts and this will only benefit them more.
    The only thing we are paying for is to not have ads. There is still going to be Youtube and Spotify for free.


    1. I found a creative way to pay for Tidal. Yes $20 a month is more expensive. However I can tell you after subscribing to Spotify since day one in 2011 in the US until this morning I was receiving “inferior” audio quality over a wireless network. When I listened to TIDAL HiFi in my car via bluetooth it was like entering the next dimension of listening. Years back I had a separates hifi system and warm vinyl in my home. Then year later the distribution model changed to digital MP3 (which is terrible) and PC speakers, yuck. I have always paid for my music and will continue to support the artists who entertain my soul. Its the premium vs. the premium model. You will see a reduction in free as the artists/labels exert themselves. Thats okay I always enjoy the value.
