But lately I have begun to find its sound quality quite poor  and flat (I clearly recall I said something different in the past  :-[).

Not just you; the 'standard' sound option is 64kbps AAC. I think 'premium' might be as high as 128kbps.

I've sometimes wondered how feasible it would be for NML to switch to offering a 'free' version (128k), 'standard' (256k) and 'premium' (lossless). Or a model where your NML subscription allows you to download a certain amount from their online shop within bandwidth limits set by how much you're paying per month.

That would be awesome.  NML is simply not competitive with the other streaming services despite their deep catalog.  Raise the bitrate.  Allow for downloads on mobile devices.  Lower the price.

Apparently Klaus Heymann reads this forum since NML's standard quality is now 128k and premium 320k (guess lossless would compete too much with ClassicsOnline or something? idk). Hey Klaus! When are you gonna add Hyperion, MDG and ECM?

I have bemoaned the fact that Hyperion and ECM are not found on any streaming services (I have hoped that ECM would start their own streaming service when they rolled out their announced new site).  Which I have interpreted to mean that it is their decision not to license their music on these portals.

And by them not wanting to stream their music, it certainly hasn't hurt them. Both labels are doing extremely well. I actually admire them for not streaming their music.

ECM's classical label is technically on NML, but they've only uploaded some of the catalog, and it's listed as "Universal Classics". There's no good way to search for ECM releases except frustratedly typing in each album, but I know they have Lonquich's Kreisleriana and Holliger's Bach oboe concertos.

I've just found a way of squirting NML into my hifi via an iPad and a squeezebox, so I'm curious about it. Right now I use two streaming services, Tidal and Qobuz. Does anyone think I should scrap them and just use NML?

Augh!  Oh, waaaayyyy too tempting!  Just noticed these older posts.

1)  Has the bit rate gone up?  and 2)  Yeah, I wonder what kind of money classical artists are making from a streaming service such as this?  :-\
