How about higher audio quality?  Amazon has introduced this feature, and others have been ahead of Pandora as well.  It would be great to have the Genome Project advantage with higher audio quality.  Do others agree?

Hi Pandora,

Your algorithms are the best! That's why I am a plus subscriber and have been for many years, but PLEASE give us a lossless option!

I find myself using Pandora less and less frequently since joining tidal alongside you but I miss my Pandora stations! Easy fix... I am seriously willing to play like triple what I pay for lossless sound.  

Your move Pandora!

Well that's it. Finally unsubscribing from these forum threads after a couple years (and many many more before this forum). Seems it's all but futile. This is not the same Pandora. Good luck to all that remain.

I have been a supporter of Pandora since it’s infancy. I have a lot of Sonos equipment and am disappointed with the audio quality of Pandora. I am a subscriber to SonosHD. The sound is a real step up!  Sonos HD doesn’t have the music genome  of Pandora and it’s play list is not as good. How about it Pandora let’s offer HD!

re: High Resolution Audio

hello,

i fully realize this has been requested before, one time by me...but i'm going to try again: can we PLEASE have a tier reserved for high resolution music? meaning, CD quality and above?

at the very least, could we at least get some offical response or status from Pandora themselves (not a moderator) on their stance on High Resolution Audio?

as a feature request for high resolution audio has been posted many times before with a significant number of Likes, this is a request for Pandora Engineering/Management to issue a Status Update including ETA on this particular request.

thank you,

Scott

I pay for the Pandora's highest audio quality (192kbps MP3), which I can get on my computer, but I can only get 128kbps on my Denon AVR using the HEOS app. This is really kind of lame.

I am trying out Amazon Music HD, and I can play 24-bit/192kHz tracks (3700 kbps) on my Denon AVR. 

Why not at least allow your highest quality on all devices capable of that quality?

Pandora, I'M ASKING YOU!

Agree!  Higher Quality ---- Higher Quality! 🤓

I really like Pandora, but only using Pandora FREE until they upgrade the streaming quality/bitrate.  Upgrading to a higher quality stream does not seem to be a priority for Pandora.  Maybe they make more money from ads and would prefer free users.  Pandora is nearly always ranked at the bottom in streaming quality/bitrate.  If you are spending money, go with another service, any other service probably sounds better.
