Streaming quality

Hi guys,

I was thinking of switching to Soundcloud Go but I'm not sure if the streaming quality rises from 128kbps to anthing higher with Soundloud Go. I know the regular one (which I'm on) is 128kbps, and so am wondering if they've bothered to raise the streaming quality for the amount they're charging.

Much as I like Soundcloud it makes no sense to pay for low bitrates. Any help on the current bit rates for Soundcloud Go will be appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi SC Community and support,

I'd like to say that SC teams are doing a great job I really like SC, the last tunes are often here, new artist, etc. I'm always the one in my group of friend making others discover new songs so thank you SC !

The thing is, i'm also a basshead and let's say some king off bassy "audiophile" so just like chipmonkey101, audio quality matters a lot.

And when, I paid for SoundCloud GO+ expecting better music quality, I find out that there is no perceptible difference.

Artists are doing a great job mixing and mastering songs with their team, let's pay them a tribute, honor and respect their work with better audio quality.

It always go back to money, so yes I'm ok to pay up to €19/month for lossless (FLAC) or high quality ( CD quality minimum )streaming since now most of the people have good internet connexion for streaming purpose.
Totally agree with you! I would say this is a business opportunity for Soundcloud to add a new proposition. I will absolutely pay more than Spotify to listen in 320 or even in high-res audio.
