I really like the new Jplay IOS application, for its sound and for the user experience. That's why I decided it was time to give Qobuz a try, with its 30-day free trial. I was surprised at how good it sounds, almost on par with local storage, which in my case is an M.2 NVME Femto drive powered by Plixir Elite and quad-star DC cable with Mundorf silver-gold alloy wire and shield JSS360 . What perhaps surprised me the most is that there are all the records and artists that I have searched for, some of them very old and only released in Spain. I have taken the opportunity to catch up with music in Spanish by current artists, such as C Tangana (fusion of Spanish song with rap, the child Josele (flamenco guitarist) especially on the album tribute to Billy Evans "Paz", Orishas (hip -Cuban hop) and many others like Residente, Alba Molina, Javiera Mena, etc. Also records from my youth like Derribos Arias, Pau Riba, Jaume Sisa or the prematurely deceased Nino Bravo. The ones from Qobuz take approximately 12 seconds to start, probably because my ADSL is via satellite and always has a delay, which ADSL does not have over fiber, although in the case of Qobuz it is longer. On the other hand, have at your disposal all known music is ideal for meetings or parties with friends , where someone always wants to listen to a file that you do not have in the local storage .It is also very interesting to be able to search for a specific recording , to which it refers erence a reviewer for music magazines. On the other hand, the price to pay, after the free trial period, is in line with what platforms such as Netflix mark.Carlos
