Tidal: "To lose one CEO may be regarded as a misfortune..."

"To lose one CEO may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness." (But to lose three?)" Oscar Wilde
Tidal's 3rd CEO, Jeff Toig, was "let go" (freed?) in March, soon after their $200 million cash infusion from Sprint, but the news of his departure only recently became public, sending the jumpin' Jehosafats into a click-bait fury.

It's worth noting that Tidal's former CEO, Peter Tonstad, was an 'interim' CEO so you'd kinda expect his stay to be. . .interim. . .and the first, Andy Chen, was CEO under the old regime so you'd kinda expect him to be replaced by the new regime. But the news loves to beat up on Tidal ever since Jay Z & Co. took over.

The BIG looming Question: Should you hold out on subscribing to Tidal?

A. Seeing as Tidal is a monthly subscription service, why in the hell would you hold out on dipping in to their deep and varied (and lovely) CD-quality (or better, thanks to MQA) catalog?

Fear of loss?

for the home or on the go. It's a great company and better in the US than anything else.

The actual quote is "To lose one parent, Mr Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness."

Perhaps the same conditions apply to their CEO's.

that much about MQA. The catalog is ridiculously good.

...and very worthwhile. Hope they make it and prosper.

What I won't jump into with any of these companies are "Lifetime memberships".

the deal. 20 bucks a month for a lossless, or better catalog as deep as this is a steal.

No reason not to subscribe. The monthly commitment limits exposure. The catalog as everyone mentions is awesome and the software is actually very professional and the integration with my preferred players, audirvana Plus and ROON is seamless. Enjoy!

Also, I enjoy a military discount of 50% I believe it is. For those of you who are active or vets, look into it. I"m retired, so I'm not sure if it's vets with a DD214 or retired. Great deal though and nice of them.
