Status: Open Ideas

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?

I switched to streaming Pandora via HDMI ARC on my smart TV from an optical/toslink connection and the audio quality noticeably improved.

I listen to Pandora in stereo 2.0 using an AVR, all quality components.

I totally agree that the overall streaming audio should be upgraded.  It is time.  Hope the Pandora honchos agree.

I always playing Pandora on my Roku sound system but it is not 5.1 so the sound quality is not good. When do you expect to provide 5.1 on Roku?

Local Performer
New here are you?

it will never happen.

There will almost certainly never be 5.1 audio from any source. DTS recordings are already rare. My suggestion is to focus on a good stereo setup or ditch the Roku for a better music playback experience.

I let my family premium plan expire and moved on to Amazon music family plan.  Audio quality is incredibly better.  My kids all moved to Spotify.  After more than 2 decades of Pandora, it was finally time to upgrade...and for less money.  Pandora is almost like listening to AM radio, even on their highest quality bitrates.

Which service has the ability to pick good songs like Pandora?
Local Performer
Yeah, that's the thing... I think Pandora is best at choosing
music. really sad that they can't get the quality better because
they'd dominate the market. I let my family plan expire and will not renew.
Yeah, I currently toggle between YouTube music, Amazon Music HD and Tidal Hi-Fi Plus. I'm noticing that these services radio or similar music playing options have improved greatly. No, it's not music genome but the sound quality more than makes up for it in my opinion.

Agreed. The Entrepreneur in me wants to approach Pandora (who is
owed by Sirius XM as of Feb 2019 I believe) for me to be a paid
consultant or to take over as CEO LOL. The Audiophile in me feels
the same way, to bring the best of the genome tech coupled with the
highest quality possible to the masses. I feel like a generation is
missing out on quality. even the sound systems today are inferior..
I remember when people used to have quality equipment and 4-6ft tall
speakers in their homes for a real experience.
I’m a pig, I guess. I’m entitled to both the genome and great sound. And not at a premium, either.
