Tidal brings high quality audio streaming to everyone — for a price

Today a Swedish company named Aspiro is releasing a similarly high-end service called TIDAL, […] You can listen on iOS, Android, or a web app, along with 34 home audio systems including Sonos, all for $19.99 a month. […] you can absolutely tell the difference in sound quality between existing services and this one, and at times its 16-bit FLAC files can be stunning. Tidal is built on the back of WiMP Music, a goofily named Spotify competitor in Europe, and so it comes with a catalog of 25 million tracks that so far has had most of what I’ve searched for. […] What Tidal doesn’t have is great design […] Tidal’s black-and-white hodgepodge likely won’t impress you. And those huge files you’re streaming have downsides of their own: there’s a noticeable lag when you skip tracks as the file buffers; saving files to your mobile device can quickly chew through your storage; and streaming for even a few hours over LTE could be hell on your data plan. – Casey Newton,The Verge
