First post here. Thanks to all for a great forum.
I am streaming Spotify Premium, and the front panel of my Direct Stream with Bridge II says it is PCM, 16 bits and 44.1 khz. It sounds great. Can I trust my eyes and ears that this is CD quality?
I also use Roon with Tidal HiFi as well as a Synology NAS that I have ripped CD’s and SACD’s to, along with some other hi res audio I have bought and downloaded. Tidal on the system sounds great and I find many of their recordings are offered in better than CD quality, even if not MQA or listed in the “Masters” category
I find that Spotify has a deeper collection than Tidal, and I can find music there I would otherwise have to purchase as a physical copy. I have a nice CD player and turntable with hundreds of LP’s and CD’s. I am trying to avoid purchasing more physical music if possible.
