  • AKKU Quintet - Depart (256kbps mp3, sent as a promo) - Minimalist Jazz from Switzerland. If an MP3 sounds this good, I wonder what the 24/96 or an LP from them would sound like. Available on Bandcamp too.

      Tidal has Depart as a HiFi stream. Qobuz does not.

      HiFi = 16/44 uncompressed, Master = 24 bit MQA, anything from 44 to 192 kHz.
