Music Direct Launches Qobuz Playlist: Streamer's Delight
By Bes Nievera
Music Direct, in collaboration with Qobuz, has introduced Streamer's Delight, a curated playlist posted exclusively on the high-resolution streaming service. This freewheeling playlist touches on an array of genres, including rock, blues, metal, jazz, and electronica, was well as world and classical music. Curated by Music Direct Brand Ambassador Bes Nievera (with input from numerous staffers), this collection features tracks that are available on vinyl LP from Music Direct.
This diverse playlist represents the types of tracks that Music Direct uses to assess playback systems, as we carefully analyze qualities such as detail retrieval, high- and low-frequency extension, soundstage width, height, and depth, vocal clarity, instrument tonality, and the overall, lifelike portrayal of the track. Our goal is to experience music exactly as the artist intended it, with all the power, nuance, and dynamics fully intact.
Our Music Direct playlist will be updated regularly, so it will be a perpetual source for sheer fun, as well as a useful tool for evaluating the strengths and limitations of your own system. Call us at 312-433-0200 to discuss your digital playback system, or any other audio issues you'd like to discuss.
