(February 12, 2021) In just two short days, one of the industry’s more notable Hi-Res streaming services – Qobuz – turns two in the US. According to the service, 2020 was a big year of growth. In fact, its American subscriber base doubled in size. Originally founded in France during 2007, Qobuz is now available in 12 countries around the globe.
One of Qobuz’s claims to fame is being the world’s first Hi-Res streaming service. And holding true to that claim, the service offers streaming quality up to 24-bit/192kHz audio. That kind of quality certainly sounds impressive, and what’s more impressive (if not hard to comprehend) is Qobuz’s catalog of more than 70 million titles. In other words, more than enough for the hardest of hardcore audiophiles.
Last year, Qobuz launched an all-new out-of-app conversation series called “Qobuz Live.” With a mission of educating music fans, Qobuz Live has featured a range of personalities, recording artists, and representatives from some of the industry’s biggest speaker manufacturers. This is all in addition to in-app features that deliver editorial content, liner notes, lyric booklets, and the like.
Celebrating Qobuz’s US success, Managing Director Dan Mackta stated: “We’ve come a long way very quickly, made possible by enthusiastic partners in the music industry and creative community.”
