Meh.

post #182 of 200

I use Spotify and Rdio, I gotta say I love Rdio

post #183 of 200

Rdio sounds quality is?

post #184 of 200

Rdio uses 192kbps MP3 at the moment, but they're apparently in the process of converting to 320kbps AAC.

In case someone finds this thread in a search -- Rdio switched to AAC and subscribers can select up to 320 kbps:

Is ALL content finally converted to 320?

Fired it up again, been a little while since I've had RDIO going. 

 

I'll keep up with it, see how she treats me. I always liked Rdio. Spotify's mass of curated playlists has me entranced at the moment, but I know Rdio's AAC will sound better than Spotify's notoriously unreliable OGG compressions...

From the blog post: "Today we’re happy to announce we’ve converted our entire catalog of over 30 million songs to high-quality AAC audio." ... so it sounds like it.  (Related: I'm no longer working at Rdio, having left 6 months ago for a new adventure.)

I know. It's too much.

Beats 320 kbps is plenty good enough for me !

 

I am too old to have 'dog ears' hearing sensitivity :L3000:

post #193 of 200

It's just a shame Beats is a terrible service. :/

My vote would be for Google's all access service for now. When my free Spotify subscription runs out (6months), I'll be switching.
Google - Great customer support

- over 30 million songs

- 320kbps quality in MP3 CBR (currently finding out the LAME format/codec for this)

- 20,000 song upload

- Depending on the MP3 type http://soundexpert.org/encoders-320-kbps it actually will have the best quality if it's CBR lame 3.97b2. EDIT UPDATE: Just got an email back from Google. Said they use CBR, but not sure on the numbers. She said that was more on the developer side. Will update once I find out.

- No offline song Limit

 

RDIO - just upgraded all it's stuff to 320kbps AAC

- Over 30mill songs

- Who knows if it's upsampled or original 320kbps. I emailed them.

- No offline song limit as well as NO DEVICE LIMIT (only one to do this)

 

RHAPSODY (Acquired Napster not too long ago) -

- 320kbps on mobile, but not on desktop yet. That comes in the next update, which who knows when.

- They use 320kbps when the provider allows or if not possible, upsamples older music.

- Not sure what format. Won't specify. I believe it's WMA though.

- No offline song limit

 

SONY MUSIC UNLIMITED - uses 320kbps AAC

- Bad customer service

- iffy IU, especially offline.

- No offline song limit

** Can't even talk to anyone about it on the phone. Hard to get in contact with them as well so no details on the origin of the AAC.

SPOTIFY - 10,000 offline limit

- 320KBPS ogg vorbis (although I've read Google and Sony's music has better quality so maybe they are upsampling lower quality files)

- idk how much of a library (20-22million?).

 

DEEZER - is also coming stateside sometime soon

- is the largest subscription service worldwide boasting over 35mil songs

- has lossless as well as 24bit master tracks for download when available

 

As I mentioned before TIDAL is now available stateside (it comes from WiMP overseas)

- $20 for lossless

- the song labeling and search feature isn't up to par yet.

Google has one dealbreaker problem: it ANNIHILATES data on cell. If you pull up a playlist or an album it starts caching the entire thing. This is a slight problem when I'm at the gym and bouncing between stuff because within 2 minutes I've used up 100mb of data. 

 

Used it on my iPhone and literally a minute into the first song on a playlist I'd burned up 40mb. Absurd.
