To avoid taking this thread off-topic, I think we're going to have to agree to disagree on Tidal vs. Qobuz differences, as ears and brains also have differences.
I am still interested in learning more about the Omnia S1, to compare with other products. It appears the OS will not support some software options preferred by Audiophiles and tech hobbyists. But OK, perhaps that is not the target market. So what about the hardware? Any sonic improvements or other special features?
