The only thing keeping me from buying a subscription

I tried Deezer's free trial for a month and loved the sound quality, especially in my vehicle. My biggest issue, and the only thing holding me back from getting it for the family, is that when I use the voice assistant to play a specific song, Deezer will most often play a low quality live version. No matter how I rephrase my request, it just continues to play the live version. I'm begrudgingly going back to Spotify until this is no longer an issue.

Sorry to see you go, @Mitch C. 

At least there are plenty of options out there so everyone can find a service that meets their needs.

I suppose you're right... Not sure why anyone would want to pay a premium to hear songs that sounded like it was recorded on a cell phone 200 ft from the stage, but hey man no judgment here.

I mean sure, it probably wouldn't be terribly difficult to change up the coding so that you have to say the words, “live version" when requesting a track to hear the aforementioned cell phone recording, but why do that when people can just select another streaming service 🤷🏼‍♂️

I do appreciate your comment though, after reading it I went to look at just how many direct competitors there are in lossless audio streaming services... Amazon music, Apple music, Tidal, and Qobuz all seem like solid alternatives.

Rock on @GropplerZorn 🤘 😎
