    ◎自封為世界上唯一經過認證的高解析度串流媒體暨下載服務的Qobuz將於2019年初在美國推出,其中將會有4000萬首「無損」音質的歌曲(FLAC 16-Bit / 44.1 kHz,類似於CD的音質)和320kbps的MP3音質以及廣泛的元數據和其他內容。該串流媒體還將提供24-Bit音質的音樂曲目,包含超過75,000張專輯,可作為付費下載以及作為Sublime +訂閱的一部分進行串流傳輸。

    ◎Qobuz目前已經在法國、英國、荷蘭、德國、意大利和西班牙推出。該公司將聚焦於可能吸引發燒友的音樂,包括難以找到的爵士樂和競爭對手的串流服務所沒有的古典樂版本。該公司還承諾提供廣泛的元數據以及完整的數位版專輯內頁冊子、互動文章和評論以及獨家播放清單等內容,這些內容將透過Qobuz的應用程式在每個平台上提供。

    ◎Qobuz的價格略高於他們的競爭對手。若選擇完整的高解析度串流,用戶每年的費用為299.99美元,但其中還包括透過Qobuz Hi-Res(最高到24-bit / 192 khz)下載商店下載音樂有高達60%的折扣優惠。其他費率方案包括「錄音室訂閱」提供無限制的高解析度音樂(最高到24-bit / 192 khz),每月收費24.99美元或每年249.99美元;「Hi-Fi訂閱」將提供16-bit的CD音質串流,每月收費19.99美元;以及「高級」價位可以無限制地串流播放320 kbps的音樂。

    Qobuz, which bills itself as the world's only certified hi-res streaming and download service, will launch in the US in early 2019. 40 million tracks will be available in "lossless" quality (FLAC 16-Bit/44.1 kHz, similar to CD quality) and in 320kbps MP3 quality along with extensive meta-data and additional content.

    The streamer will also offer a catalog in 24-Bit quality that music includes more than 75,000 albums, available as paid downloads, and in streaming as part of a Sublime+ subscription.

    Qobuz has already launched in France, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Spain.

    The company will focus on music that might appeal to an audiophile, including hard-to-find jazz and classical cuts that aren't available on rival services. The company also promises extensive metadata, as well as content such as complete digital booklets, interactive articles and reviews, and exclusive playlists, which will be served through Qobuz's app on every platform.

    Qobuz prices are a little higher than their rivals. For full Hi-Res streaming, users can expect to pay $299.99 per year, but that includes discounts of up to 60% for music downloaded via the Qobuz Hi-Res (up to 24-bit / 192 khz) download store.

    Other price tiers include the studio subscription, which offers unlimited Hi-Res (24-bit /up to 192 khz) for $24.99/month or $249.99 annually or the Hi-Fi subscription, which will set you back $19.99 for streaming 16-bit CD quality audio. Finally, they offer a 'Premium' price point with unlimited streaming of 320 kbps music.

    At launch, Qobuz will be available on all Mac/iOS/Android/Windows operating systems.
