Music service

I just purchased a music streamer and a tube amp (Yakin), Chi Fi and would like to hear what service you'all use and maybe why. Thanks, Mike

    Agreed wrong forum but, I would suggest Tidal HiFI lossless and fantastic sounding. Its 20$ a month.

    I was hoping for a new service offering.
    Imagine my disappointment. :/

    Tidal HiFi for at home and Pandora Plus for at work.

    Depends on what you want to spend. Tidal offers cd quality, but costs twice as much at 20 bucks a month. Others like Napster, Spotify, Deezer are around 10 bucks a month, but mostly only offer MP3 quality.

    If you have a decent dac, playing these music services with MP3 quality makes them listenable at least. For sound quality alone, Tidal is king right now.

    My new in the box streamer is a Bluesound Node-2, It's what the guy was using when I auditioned the tube amp. I thought the combo was excellent.

    Back to the music service. I was going to use amazon just because i have the prime service and some is already included...and I will do this. I can later switch to Tidal to see if it's worth it. Probably is worth it.

    With a node2, you can take advantage of Tidal Masters and MAQ. Sign up for a 30 day free trial. Look for what's new and then the masters tab lots of good higher resolution music in there.

    I forgot to mention, I also have Amazon Prime. Sound quality wise, Tidal sounds better.

    Cool man, the Node 2 is a nice unit for basic streaming....even has a halfway decent dac in it. Let us know how you like it.
