There is very little money to be made by artists on most streaming services. Even after the US legislated that they must pay a decent amount (which they are of fighting) it is not enough for most bands to give up their day jobs.

Yup. Though some artists have/are holding out for better deals. That only works for the most popular artists that have leverage though - everyone else is getting hosed.

So another reason Tidal sounds better to me, is they pay the artist considerably more than nearly all the other streaming services. It isn't a specific sonic benefit, it just feels better.

Yes but things change/the world changes. How many did actually earn money on selling records 50(or more) years ago? How much money did Beethoven earn? Not many. The 70's, 80's and the 90's was huge for selling records and many artists got very wealthy because of this. I am not saying that artist's should earn money on what they create but the world is different today. Artists needs to think different today to earn money and what Matallica did with the Black album won't happen again.

In the 30s and 40s, musicians made money performing live. Records weren't where the money was. They were loss leaders to bring people in to the live shows.
