How do I know if I'm streaming at highest quality

I've been going back n forth b/w Spotify Premium (SP) and Tidal Hi Fi. I just realized my Cambridge CXN v2 doesn't yet support Tidal so I was used SP last night to play around.

I noticed the "Music Quality" section was greyed out when streaming through the Cambridge CXN. I would like some kinda comfort that it's getting the signal I'm paying for.

How do we know? Or how do we prove that we're truly pulling the bitrate we need?

Any tools out there that are simple?

I wish the CXN would just tell me it's bitrate on the screen or something.

Might get more answers posting this on Spotify's own forum or asking their help desk? I know there are some restrictions published by Spotify as to when HQ streaming will work, so you might find some answers on their site
