"At least someone liked them."   Jim, you sound skeptical.  Have you heard them or talked to someone who has?   
Tidal Music
I had Tidal for 4 years and switched to Qobuz 6 months ago.  I much prefer Qobuz for the following reasons: (1) Qobuz just sounds better.  Not on every single album but on the vast majority;  (2) Qobuz has about 10x more hi-res content than Tidal ...

One that has not been mentioned yet is "Pro Studio Masters".  If you are on their email list you will receive 4 or 5 mailings per week of new releases and remastered music from several genres all in hi-res.  Almost all of the albums have samples o... 
Eva Cassiday Blew Me Away with her cover of Wayfaring Stranger....
Eva is magnificent and definitely worth exploring.  Try "Live at Blues Alley" for your next listen.  Unfortunately her catalog is not large as she died at a young age a number of years ago.

your favorite 3 Duke Ellington albums?
It's not "technically" Duke... but since you already like "Side by Side", you should hear "Johnny Hodges with Billy Strayhorn's Orchestra.  It's one of my all-time favorites regardless of genre.  I see where it is available on a 2013 SACD release....

I'm not sure how to contact them as no email or phone # is available on their site. 
Innuos Statement Review
lalitk, I also heard the Innuos demo at RMAF.  I concur with your praise of the Zenith Mk3 paired with the Phoenix re-clocker.  To my ears it was 95% of the Statement's SQ for a lot less money.
