Samsung and Deezer have announced a new partnership which sees Deezer’s High Fidelity Lossless Audio arrive on several Samsung soundbars and wireless speakers. With the new audio quality, the companies said that people will be able to listen to their music with the quality that it was intended to be heard with.
Those who have compatible devices can now subscribe to Deezer HiFi and access 36 million HiFi tracks. If you take out a subscription you also get a feature called Flow, that lets you listen to personalized playlists without ads interrupting the playback. Subscribers get music streamed at 16-bit/ 44.1kHz in lossless audio.
Discussing the deal, Taeho Park, VP of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said:
“At Samsung, we prioritize innovation and sound quality when introducing audio products to our consumers. We are driven by our commitment to providing a listening experience that’s unrivaled by our competitors, and our partnership with Deezer speaks directly to our mission to produce the best sound quality in the market.”
Meanwhile, Riad Hawa, VP of Hardware Partnerships at Deezer, commented:
“Our partnership with Samsung ensures that Deezer HiFi and Samsung users will have even more opportunities to discover and experience the music they love in the way it was meant to be heard. Providing greater accessibility to FLAC quality sound is really important to us and to all audiophiles who have a greater appreciation for lossless audio. Teaming up with Samsung allows us to deliver the best quality sound to our consumers who care about high quality sound.”
A Deezer HiFi subscription will set you back $19.99 back each month but it’s possible to try it out on a 30-day trial basis.
