Singtel Music Streaming

Hi all, I was thinking of subscribing to either Spotify or Tidal Hifi via Singtel. Anyone here have any experience or suggestions about it? Which is better?

Thanks!

Really depend on you and your gear.
If you are using Out of box earpiece/cheap one, just get Spotify will do.
However unless you are audiophile than for Tidal since Tidal is loseless
and now HD format.

Actually I listen mainly to rock and pop and prefer lossless audio. My 'go to' earphone is my Earin while audiophile will be my UM custom with RSA predator amp. I also have a FiiO X1ii as my main rig.

Tidal than but the library for Chinese music is lacking.
FYI Spotify is going Hi fi also but unknown when.
Cheers.

been using singtel music for more than a year now.

quite a good deal for spotify. offline playback, and free local music streaming (no data used). and cheaper.

just need to re-con after the one-year contract for singtel music ends.

Wow if Spotify is going Hifi then I might just wait a while, though subscription is going to be more expensive like Tidal Hifi now.

Actually Tidal also free data streaming and more expensive due to lossless/HD. Contract wise can also subscribe without contract but pay slightly more per mth.

i will be careful with singtel.. i almost subscribe to Tidal hifi, saw $15.99 from singtel.. if sign from Tidal direct is $19.99 but to get $15.99 i need to sign 1 year contract, means technically i cant switch even if Spotify offer Hifi say 3 months down the road..

So I would monitor first. No contract for Tidal Hifi on Singtel is $19.90/mth.

Using spotify from Sep16. Good range of songs. Chinese english japanese.
Anyway android phones dont sample higher than 24bit 48KHz. The OS limits everything. Spotify cheaper half price. Gd enough.

I don't think so since we are not sure when Spotify will launch this. Use your best judgement.

tidal lossless is CD quality 16bit 44.1kHz, so android phones are plenty good.
