  2. Streaming Sound Quality

    Adaptive bitrate streaming is certainly a thing - see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adaptive_bitrate_streaming - but whether Tidal uses it or not is another question. This review seems to indicate that it uses a fixed bitrate: https://www.techradar.com/reviews/audio-visual/hi-fi-and-audio/music/tidal-1270607/review Tidal's own website also implies that they use a fixed bitrate: http://tidal.com/lp/about/

    I certainly recall people that bought the various multicoloured/patterned "special" pressings that were released from time to time saying that they thought they wore more quickly than the standard black pressings - anecdotal information of course, so who knows...?
  10. What are you listening to right now?

    Certainly one reason...but (for example) if the black pigment is graphite, the addition might reduce the coefficient of friction, which would probably be a good thing.
  11. What are you listening to right now?

    ...or worse. Depends what/why they add the black stuff.
