Sonos_deezer-elite_web

 

Today we’re proud to take audio quality to new heights with the introduction of Deezer Elite, a new global service offering High-Resolution Audio (HRA) to music fans everywhere.

Joining us on this mission to provide the ultimate listening experience is Sonos, one of the world’s leading brands in high-end audio hardware. Together we’re delighted to provide music streaming at CD-quality or higher.

From September 15th Sonos and Deezer customers in the United States can stream FLAC files at the touch of a button, bringing exceptional audio into the home. It is the first time that music fans in the US will be able to use Deezer exclusively via their Sonos device. Deezer Elite availability in other countries will follow.

“Deezer has built a global audience of over 16 million people by meeting the many needs of music consumers. Audio enthusiasts no longer have to choose between a streaming service and high quality audio, with Deezer Elite they can have both for the first time,” said Tyler Goldman, CEO of Deezer North America. “We are focused on super-serving the needs of underserved market segments to continue to grow the music streaming category.”

Deezer rated as best streaming service in Sweden

Shortly after launching in Sweden, partnering with mobile operator Tre, we’ve come out on top in a recent comparative review of streaming services conducted by respected Swedish tech blog, Lajka.se. We’re thrilled to have beat market leaders Wimp and Sweden’s own Spotify to the coveted top spot, proving that having a home advantage isn’t everything.The article championed our sophisticated design, wide availability on different platforms and devices, and our extensive range of in-apps. Thanks for the thumbs-up Lajka!

Here’s what our Partnership Manager for Sweden, Alex Esser, had to say: “Spotify has done a fantastic job introducing streaming to the masses, especially in its home country. However, it’s exciting for us to see that Deezer is now rated as a better service in Sweden and, as a result, we’re welcoming more and more Swedish users to Deezer everyday.”

“We’re committed to offering a streaming service that gives people something extra. For example, we understand that in Sweden we have to focus a little more on electronic music, indie acts and female artists as this is what our users want. Through our extensive team of editors, we’re focussed on taking the time to understand what Swedish music lovers want and it’s good to see it’s paying off here.”

In the Lajka.se review Deezer proudly topped the podium with nine out of ten points. Natives Spotify took second place while Norwegian Wimp came in third position. Read the full comparison here (in Swedish).

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve taken our collaboration with edjing, the world’s first DJ app, one step further with the launch of edjing’s brand new app. Now you can play with the entire Deezer catalogue and mix to your heart’s content on the more social, more intelligent, and more intuitive edjing app. A range of new features radically improve your overall experience:

  • ‘‘edjing World’’: the social network for edjers, connecting you with other aspiring DJs all over the world and helping you to share and discover new mixes.
  • ‘‘Global Search’’: this feature gives you instant access to more than 50 million tracks in one click – browsing everything Deezer, iTunes and SoundCloud have to offer.
  • Redesigned interface: the attractive new design means seamless navigation through all the latest features.

What’s more, the new app grants improved access to more social sharing features, unlimited Cloud storage space, and a ‘‘current playlist’’.

Daniel Marhely, founder and CTO of Deezer, said: ‘‘When we first partnered with edjing over two years ago, we had the common goal of giving new opportunities to aspiring DJs and refreshing tired old mixing techniques. Today, we want to take this even further providing music fans with increasingly innovative features, while helping them to discover more of the music they love.’’

Jean-Baptiste Hironde, CEO of edjing, added: ‘‘In 2012, edjing and Deezer had the ambition to innovate in the music track-mixing field. That’s what we’ve done since then. As from today, with the new edjing, users will enjoy an even richer DJing experience. With these evolutions and the optimised Deezer integration, edjing remains the most powerful DJ app currently on the market.’’

The app is available for iOS, Android, Amazon and Windows 8 devices. For more information, go to the edjing site.
