I have dabbled with a few of the streaming services, and in short, I have found:

Google Play Music (now defunct) had very good sound quality, was easy to navigate, and allowed you to upload your own stuff, no questions asked.
YouTube Music is much more restrictive than Google Play music was, and the sound quality is surprisingly below average and far below that of Google Play Music. It does integrate well with Google's ecosystem.
Tidal has lossless audio, and the "master" tracks they have are the highest sound quality I've found. Tidal has a lot of music, and rarely do I find myself asking why a song isn't showing up. However, they are very hip-hop, rap based, and that's not at all my cup of tea. That genre is going to be very in-your-face.
Apple Music is also very good from a sound quality standpoint, and the selection is also excellent. Good enough interface. Now integrates on Google Home.
Surprisingly good is Amazon HD music. Sound quality is actually, IMO, is right up there with Tidal as they too offer some lossless music, just not as much. The interface is manageable, but not the easiest of the bunch.

From a sound quality standpoing alone, interface notwithstanding, Tidal is worth $50 for a year. With quality headphones, Tidal is noticebly better than the rest.
This. +1

Tidal HiFi is really only for those who want a lossless, bit-perfect capable streaming source.

That being said, if you do have an audiophile rig that can process bit-perfect streaming audio, I can't recommend Tidal enough. The audio selection is pretty good, but the audio quality it top notch and superb.

For me, my rig is Mimby -> MJ2 -> VC/Utopia/HD800S. It's a match made in heaven with Tidal.

Interesting. Auto-renew price is significantly lower. $120 vs. $20/month. Hi-Fi Family plan isn't on sale but $180/year is a good deal compared to $30/month.

Prev deal said purchase of "pop smoke" but I think this requirement has been removed for the $50 price.

Note that the subscription starts at purchase and have to create a new account to use. Cannot add to any old ones.

More like Spotify with less music selection but better audio quality.

Is there a way to get the $120 a year as an existing customer

someone should add the regular premium one year service is on sale for $40.

One of the benefits of the HiFi Tidal subscription (the more expensive one) is that there's Dolby Atmos content.

Thanks for the detailed response.

Did tidal work with Google home devices and Alexa devices?
I've got several of this speakers scattered around the house and use YT music.
