Sound Quality of TIDAL and QOBUZ vs rips vs CD replay?

229 viewsStreaming

I’d like to know if you find that the SQ of the best streaming services available at the moment  (TIDAL, QOBUZ) sound equal than their cd-rips (same albums, same masterings). Some people say they prefer original ripped files: They say they sound more “natural” to their senses. You can even read that even good cd reproduction with good cd players betters streaming in terms of SQ. Thank you for your answers.

I will venture out onto that limb!

I have Tidal. In Hi Fi mode, it’s not as good as CD (Oppo 205,) but in MQA mode, slightly better than CD.

SACD outperforms all Tidal modes.
