Streaming-music listeners really don’t care about missing out on CD-like sound quality

Streaming-music listeners really don’t care about sound quality.

A recent survey by MusicWatch found that few music fans would pay more to listen to music with better audio quality. The consumer research firm, which polled 7,700 people, asked listeners who stream music for free what it would take for them to pay for a service. Just 6% said that CD-like sound quality could persuade them to part with their hard-earned dollars.
