    I've tried them all and kept Tidal no complaints. Qobuz just didnt do it for me. I Currently have Tidal for myself, Spotify family for the Wife and kids and XM for the both of us I need to just start bluetoothing Tidal in the vehicles and ween myself off of XM altogether but the Deep Tracks channel keeps me subscribing.

    Tidal is my favorite streaming music service cuz it has extra Rap content like interviews and music vids and expansive liner notes. Qobuz is not good at Hip Hop genre. And I just found AudKit Tidizer, a kind of Tidal music downloader yesterday. Now I am testing its features. I'd like to hear if anyone has more info on this program? I am curious about the Tidal-downloaded FLAC files from AudKit.

    Well Qobuz app won't let me sign up. I get as far as it asking me my birthday and then nothing. Looks like Tidal wins :D
