Am I right in saying that Deezer (High Quality) is half the price of Tidal at £9.99, or family (6 users) at £14.99? Anyone spotted if this will be the MQA pricing?

So I suspect pricing will be on a par with Tidal.

I believe this increase in competition is good news for users.

Does anyone know what constitutes "High Quality" sound quality on Deezer Premium+? I've had a look around their website and can't find any mention of bit rate. I'm assuming 320mp3 like Spotify Premium?

Thanks

George

Not sure.

I expect they are backed by 7Digital same as the others so much of the content is probably the same. Will have to snoop around the web to find out....

Deezer HiFi is CD 'FLAC' quality but the plan does not show on its website other than at: Deezer Offers HiFi and no pricing or whether it is the same as Premium+

Aa-ha
Found it Deezer Subscription Plans.

HiFi is normally £19.99/m but on offer at £14.99/m for 12 months.

Thanks Gents, and Ian, well spotted!

I wonder how soon Deezer will get up and running with MQA files? I didn't really take to TIDAL, as there were significant gaps in their catalogue for the music I enjoy, and much of what they had (of interest to me) was MP3. The Spotify catalogue (and tailored suggestions) is leagues ahead, so I'd be very interested in giving Deezer a spin.

Cheers

George

Don't know what Deezer is like compared to Tidal. Might have a look on a free trial if there is one.

I'm becoming more and more impressed by the need to be able to purchase and own MQA albums, though. Recently trying to find out about portable players, many of which don't support Tidal, and of those some can't handle offline Tidal media, and may not even use the full DAC with Tidal at all, led me to believe that Tidal is OK on a home system fully set up for it with e.g. Roon, but isn't enough for all uses, and not for mass market penetration when a very high percentage of people listen on portable devices of some kind.

Hey 3dit0r,

Indeed, any time we are disconnected from tidal or other streaming services we have no MQA except for a few boutique options like 2L. I asked MQA Ltd about this on the back of their CEDIA announcements, and they told me that the e-onkyo store in Japan will have MQA downloads for the Warner catalog. E-onkyo's website says it will be announcing/launching (?) something on 21/9. The downloads and purchases are restricted to within Japan, I'm wondering if I am there for a trip, does it mean in theory I can purchase and download from there.
