We are currently in the middle of our “Big Speaker” Special Event, which gives our clients in the Boston, MA area a chance to save significant amount of money on store demonstrator models from Bowers & Wilkins, FOCAL, PSB, Revel, & Wilson Audio. These are some of the top names in the speaker business today!
This prompted me to think about “What makes a speaker great?” I decided to ask each of our audio specialists what they listened for in a speaker and what criteria they had for “speaker greatness.” Collectively these four people have over 120 years in the audio business, so each knows a thing or two about high-end speakers!

Last time we met, we discussed Tidal and its partnership with MQA. This time we are going to bring its chief competitor Qobuz into the conversation. Tidal and Qobuz are at present the only services that bring "higher than Redbook CD resolution" music to the listening public. In that elevated sphere, they alone compete. For all you music lovers in the Boston, MA area, these are both excellent high-resolution streaming services.

Last time we introduced our Greater Boston, MA readers to the high-resolution audio streaming services, Tidal and Qobuz. Both offer their subscribers the opportunity to choose exactly what they want to hear and hear it in full CD resolution...or better, selecting from vast libraries of recorded music. In this way they are distinguished from services like Pandora (adaptive playlists, not on-demand, and lower quality) and Spotify (on-demand, but not full resolution). Other full resolution services include Deezer and Amazon HD, but neither offers higher than CD resolution listening choices.
If It's Easy, Can It Be Good, Too?
