Studies have proven over and over again that our ears can't hear the difference between 192kbs, let alone 320kbps, and raw sound files.
And of course I am a premium subscriber so the point about it being only 320kbs for subscribers only is moot.
And of course there is a real reason to want to hear Spotify through a premium DAP instead of iPhone due to the much better DAC and amp. There is a gigantic difference in sound between the iPhone and a premium DAP and it isn't due to higher bit rates. It is from the DAC and amp.
And sure, I could run the signal through an external DAC but the point is PORTABILITY. Why would I want to have two or three devices taped together when the point is to have it being as portable as possible?
Just because it might not be something you care about doesn't mean it isn't something a lot of other people would appreciate, because the fact is, it is.
Sorry for being snippish but your post was pointlessly catty and obnoxious.
BTW, you don't need a high powered attena to listen to Spotify. When you are a premium subscriber it copies the songs to your player so you can listen to them WITHOUT being on internet.
