Spotify to offer CD-quality audio

Spotify is to add CD-quality audio for premium subscribers to convert more users to its paid-for services.

Spotify

The music streaming service will this week add an option for tracks streamed at 320Kbps instead of 160Kbps, as first reported by new media age (18 June 2009).

The most popular tracks will be converted first, followed by its entire catalogue.

Spotify claims improved streaming quality is one of the most requested services by its users. It will form part of a raft of changes, including access to pre-release tracks, concert tickets and mobile access, planned to be introduced to tempt more users to subscribe.

Daniel Ek, CEO of Spotify said, “We’re taking the next step in offering an unparalleled listening experience.”
