Spotify is preparing to launch a lossless audio version of its streaming service, according to multiple sources.
The offering, which is currently called Spotify Hi-Fi, will offer lossless CD-quality audio to users — similar to what Tidal offers in its Hi-Fi service.
The streaming service began running a test on a small group of users in the US earlier this week offering the Hi-Fi service for $5 to $10 above the $10 per month price for Spotify Premium.
But a source and a few Reddit users who got the prompt and tried to sign up for the Hi-Fi service were either told it wasn’t available in their area at the time or they received an error message.
