Spotify tests Hi-Fi streams to deliver music in high quality

In the Reddit post linked, the user says the upgrade offer was for $7.50/month, which is different than the $5 and $10 fees some other users are seeing.

Spotify is preparing to launch a lossless audio version of its streaming service, according to multiple sources.

From swiping right on collaborations with Tinder to eyeing up a potential purchase of SoundCloud, streaming giant Spotify isn't adverse to looking for ways to get an edge on its competitors.

See where Demaryius Thomas ranks among WR salaries after Antonio Brown extension
Per ESPN's Adam Schefter , Brown and the Steelers have agreed to a deal that will make him the highest-paid WR in the league. In context, his stats being down from 2015 don't necessarily represent a decline in ability or that AB has "lost a step".

Another screenshot, this time on Imgur, shows the same pricing tier and benefits, save for the free vinyl record, which is replaced by exclusive presale concert tickets. When trying to sign up, however, some report that the service wasn't available in their area or that they instead received an error message. This means that Spotify gained 20 million subscribers in a single year, and has is more than twice the audience size of Apple Music. With the company already offering details of the Hi-Fi service to a small subset of users, a wider launch shouldn't be too far off.

This new service is not actually a big surprise considering everyone can access lossless music quality through their Android and smartphone devices these days.

Keep your eyes peeled for a new Hi-Fi offering from Spotify coming, hopefully, soon. At present, one of the many advantages of buying CDs is that people can rip music off them in lossless quality, which audiophiles highly prefer.

The mission is expected to use an upgraded version of SpaceX's Dragon capsule and its Falcon Heavy rocket in development. They will not land on the moon's surface.

Regardless, a Spotify spokesperson refused to shed any light on the matter, telling The Verge, "We are always testing new products and offers but have no news to share at this time". While users have been excited by the new offering, it doesn't appear to be functional yet.

Would CD quality audio be worth an extra tenner a month to you?
