Qobuz is the first streaming service to abandon the "archaic" MP3

Qobuz, a new music streaming service launched in the US earlier this year, intends to establish itself among numerous competitors with the high quality of its recordings. The first step in this direction was the rejection of the "archaic" MP3, instead of which the company will focus on high-quality formats without quality loss.

The new plan offers Qobuz users for a small fee ($ 15 per month and $ 150 per year) unlimited access to more than 50 million tracks, as well as a large library of metadata and proprietary materials from the service's editorial team.

The company also offers the Sublime + plan, which includes streaming access and discounts when buying hi-res music from the Qobuz store. This plan will cost you $ 250 per year.

Qobuz, however, clarified that we are talking about a time-limited offer for the first 100, 000 subscribers until January 31, 2020. It is not yet clear what will happen after that date to those who do not enter the first hundred thousand - will the "entry fee" increase or will Qobuz stop accepting subscriptions altogether?
