Tidal vs. Deezer Elite for Sonos


I've been using Deezer Elite (which offers lossless, CD-quality streaming with Sonos) since last spring, and am fairly happy with it, except, on occasion, with the selection. Before my subscription needs to be renewed in a few months, I was hoping to hear from some who are familiar with both Deezer Elite and Tidal. As the latter's claim seems to be that it's got such depth and breadth -- I like rock, mostly -- should I switch to Tidal instead of Deezer?

Thanks for any help anyone might have on this.

And Happy New Year.

Hi Howard, 

What sounds better is purely subjective to one's personal taste and associated gear. Since you're listening through Sonos, there shouldn't be any discerning differences between Tidal and Deezer Elite. They both stream music in 1,411Kbit/s FLAC format on Sonos.  

If anything, Deezer Elite should be less expensive than Tidal ($19.99 per mo.).   

I am not sure about the content with Deezer as they started out with pretty limited library.  You can always sign up for a Tidal free trial and compare the content and streaming quality.  I switched to Tidal from Rhapsody and Spotify last year and been very happy with Tidal high quality streaming.  

Happy Listening!!!
I use a modded Sonos, tidal is clearly better sonically. Content wise was sufficient for me, but loses to Spotify. There's so much to listen to anyways.

Having used also Spotify, i find it slightly better than Deezer.

Tried Apple, totally unacceptable, sounds way compressed and too much gain.
