Qobuz Download Promos Thread

Recommended Posts

It's not easy to navigate Qobuz as these offers are displayed differently in countries/regions. It seems it's best to Google 'Promotions' on your local Qobuz store e.g. Qobuz UK.


Tronosonic Experience, Them Damn Crows, Rymden, Doomsday Outlaw, Motorpsycho, Morphine, Greta van Fleet

Only had time to listen to the Amandine Beyer. As expected, this is well worth it particularly for $0.00...

 

I'll check out the Charpentier in the next days.

 

In any case, highly recommend everybody checking this out! It's really recent high res albums for free, guys. 

 

Thanks again for sharing.

Agreed. I sampled the Choral Masterpieces, Le Bal des Animaux, and Dixit Dominus albums, and they all sound great, even though the music is not familiar to me.

 

Well worth the price of - what was it? - ah yes, $0.00!

Here’s a review of the Charpentier (not by me): https://www.audaud.com/marc-antoine-charpentier-la-descente-dorphee-aux-enfers-harmonia-mundi/

 

I just quickly sampled it and it sounds really promising. 
 

I’ll download the other free albums later just in case.

Another big Qobuz downloads sale here:

 

https://www.qobuz.com/us-en/page/qobuz-fest-2020

 

Wow, this was brutal, I just spent the last 90 min going through all the discounts. Luckily a lot fo the discounted albums I already had, but I just clicked on buy for about €170 worth of music (actually worth much more before the 30-50% discounts, plus the beautiful Sublime discount on top). 

 

Currently downloading about 15GB of beautiful music.

 

Everybody, please check this out. This is a really amazing selection. You can take all the four and five star reviews from my blog almost randomly and you have what feels like a 50% chance of seeing them heavily discounted. It is truly a treasure trove.

This is another excellent deal: Chailly’s complete 24/96 Brahms symphony cycle for €11.49 (including Sublime discount). The same 244 min / 3 “CD” box at HDtracks sells for $44. 
 

This is one of the best contemporary Brahms cycles one can buy. And well recorded.

A word of caution for the Ondine label: if you're a sublime subscriber, the discount is only applied to the regular high-res price, not to the Sublime discounted one. I by default without watching always selected the Sublime price so I overpaid by a couple of €. (I've informed Qobuz customer support about this issue). I understand that the discounts on an already discounted Sublime price can and should be lower than the discounts on full price, but making the Sublime price more expensive than the discounted highres doesn't make any sense (and I haven't seen it occur for any other label).

The answer from Qobuz customer support was basically "not our fault next time just pay better attention", worded somewhat more nicely in French. I only overspent €7.50 so no big deal in total, but given how much money I spent with them I was hoping for a bit of a more customer friendly approach.
