I just got new speakers, didn't expect them to be that great compared to my dynaudios but the are and the bass, is great

To my question

I noticed i could hear some white noise (i normally don't notice) playing music from tidal, same source, cable,soundcard,dac as when i play a youtube video
where theres no noticeable noise, the noise is white noise in the background, pausing it theres no white noise, only diffrence is new speakers.

Is there some noise from tidal or is it the songs or both ?

I'm not hearing anything strange, the percussion and bass are quite far back in the mix, but it is MQA encoded so maybe that?

If you were listening to Bob James, it was probably the elevator motor you could hear in the background! I know its a childish comment, but I couldn't help myself, sorry.

I used to hear a lot of artefacts when using tidal that I didn’t on other streaming platforms, sorry it’s helpful but you’re most certainly not alone.

It annoyed me so much I left the platform

A quick google will bring up many threads on it. At least it did a few years back.
