MOG Replacements?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

For those who use MOG, you may know that MOG is shutting down next week. For those who don't; MOG is an online music player that streams 320 Kbps mp3's for $5 a month.

 

Anyone got a similar site that I could use?

I'm moving to spotify.  Just really wish I had known that mog was going to sell out to beats back when I still had the grandfathered intro pricing on google music.

MOG IS NOT SHUTTING DOWN, BM(AN APT ACRONYM FOR BEATSMUSIC) IS GOING TO EXTEND MOG'S LIFE WHILE THEY TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO KEEP PEOPLE LIKE ME WITH 200+ PLAYLISTS HAPPY AND TRANSFERRED TO BM PLUS CREATE A DECENT PC/APPLE WEB INTERFACE

RIGHT NOW I AM LISTENING TO MY BRAND NEW SUBSCRIPTION TO QUBUZZ STREAMING SCOTT MCKENZIE AND OTHER 60'S MUSIC IN 16BITS/44.1 KHZ LOSSLESS FLAC! NOT 320KBPS-ITS WONDERFUL BUT PRICEY 19.99EUROS/MONTH AND YOU CAN GET A USA SUBSCRIPTION BUT YOU REALLY HAVE TO WORK TO GET IT

ANYONE ELSE USE IT?

Spotify recently really upped their game by offering a "library" system, and they stream at 320. Combined with the excellent recommendation engine and the size of it, I feel like they're the service to stick with.

 

If Rdio wasn't stuck at 192 for some friggin' reason I'd suggest them.

Although I used to be a MOG subscriber, they mangled this transition, so I dropped them. Now I'm using Spotify Premium @ 320 kbps. The key is to go to college so you can get it for $5 a month on the student discount. :D

I second SomeGuyDude. I listen to nearly all of my music through Spotify - gasp! But I cannot tell the difference between DLed tracks on Spotify and FLAC files. Perhaps the fault is in my hearing, but whatever objective difference there is between the formats, it doesn't amount to a subjective difference (at least in my case).

 

Lest anyone think, "Of course you can't tell the difference on your ****ty phone and ****ty earbuds", I should point out that I listen to Spotify through my WA6 with a Fostex HP-A4 serving as DAC, while the headphones are HE-500s, Mad Dogs, and PS500s. If the signal is ****, I should know.

LOL there was a huge thread on that before, and the take-home is that there's no way to tell a 320 from FLAC unless you're just born with INCREDIBLY sensitive ears.

 

I've got Spotify piping through a VMODA Verza into the FAD PH6, so I'm in the same boat there. If there were any problems with the source files I'd know.

It's good to know it's not just me. The question is, then: Is the ability to tell the difference a blessing or a curse?

 

How's the Verza? Specifically, is it good for "on the go"? I wish VMODA made a case for the HTC One.

I'd imagine being able to hear 320 vs FLAC would be awful unless you either had the resources to listen to everything in FLAC or were able to ignore the difference. Plus, well, I think even if you could tell the difference you wouldn't know if you weren't A/B'ing. 

 

The Verza is the best thing ever. It's amazing for on the go and home use.

Well Mog is still up when it should have shut down.
 
Long Live Mog

This is good to know. I'm looking to get some sort of portable system going. Right now I just run my Momentums out of my HTC One. Of course, they're easy to drive and it sounds great. But everything can always sound better.

BTW if anyone was an older Spotify customer, the new update makes the service pretty much a perfect all-arounder. 

 

And yeah, the thing about the Verza is it's a DAC/Amp combo. I didn't think my M100s or PH6 benefited a huge amount from an amp, but the DAC makes a seriously noticeable difference.

Well, it's April 19 and nothing's changed. Mog's still up, and hopefully, will continue to stay that way.

 

Thanks for everything
