Qobuz Available In Italy And Spain


Qobuz opens its services in Spain and Italy from the 15th December 2017. Music fans will finally have access in these two countries to an alternative option, with this truly different music service: localised, animated and edited in their language.

With 40 million tracks in 16-Bit/44.1 kHz (the equivalent of CD quality, including all the major and independant record labels) and over 1 million tracks in Hi-Res 24-Bit, Qobuz has held an unequaled expertise in quality sound reproduction since 2008.

Qobuz also offers a thorough editorial line that is particularly rich in genres such as Classical, Jazz and World Music. Beyond the mainstream artists, Qobuz offers daily recommendations in every musical genre, through news articles and original editorials. Qobuz is also the only online music service in the world to offer digital album booklets, which are available in all our streaming apps.

Denis Thébaud, CEO of Xandrie, editor of Qobuz, says: "By opening Qobuz in Spain and Italy, we are entering into a new development cycle for our service. This cycle will also mean improving our functionalities and editorials which allow Qobuz to carry out all its promises in terms of excellence. Qobuz and sound quality go hand in hand - it has been our signature attribute for 10 years after all. Since the beginning, Qobuz has set a high standard for sound quality for music streaming. But beyond that, it really will be an experience for the client that is totally new, unique and high end. The Spanish and Italian services will be completely localised, animated and edited at a level of quality which we can safely say will set new standards."
