Want to take Spotify for a test drive?

3 months of premium for free right now. I think I'll finally try a streaming service.
Yep, my name really is Bob.

    Spotify def has its place in the world. There are services with better SQ but I enjoy Spotify streaming to my bluetooth speaker wen working on the car or grilling or in the office. It is a great way to explore different music too.

    Spotify works good for us, both for work related uses. I just can't see trying to pair it up with my 2 channel though, the differences in volume between albums drive me nuts...

    Have you turned on the Normalized Volume option?

    ALSO, SPOTIFY HAS TURNED DOWN THE VOLUME! Say no to loudness wars.

    I think Spotify makes for a nice all around option with the given features, quality, function, and price.
