    Whats your streaming music service?

    Mine is Rdio and I have the all you can listen plan and is very solidity but I'm intrigued by Apples new service.

    i signed up for apple's 3 month trial. it has some very nice features that make Music Match unnecessary. I currently have Deezer partly because of the price discount, but unless i see something really bad about Apple's offering i will probably drop Deezer. The choices seem to be between Tidal and Apple currently as both have unique offerings.

    So far I like the Apple service. Am I the only one who misses the DJ ? It just lacks something without a live person there.

    Beats 1 is really good. Better than anything Sirius has to offer. Excellent playlists.

    I cant even remember how long its been since I cancelled Sirius. So far they are #1 on my all time worst customer service list.

    I have the Spotify premium service. I like it, it turned out to be a major pain in the ass to add someone to my service though. :rolleye: They make you unsubscribe, then re-subscribe with the new number of people on your service, instead of making it easy to just add one. So dumb. :grr:

    i don't trust streams or anything off the internets for music except for neil young's high quality music service

    i like to get the CD at the very least (dvd audio or sacd) are better. from there i rip my own mp3 (if it's just for the car, mp3 is "ok" enough) but i rip them at 320 kBit/s @ a sample rate of 48,000 Hz stereo

    for extra extra special stuff like the Bach 540 performed by Cameron Carpenter, i'll use the real disc in the car. there's no beating the real thing

    i get tons and tons of used CD's off of ebay for almost nothing and it's well worth it if you want anything close at all to the master
