interesting article on streaming music services...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Since acquiring my new IEM'S, I've been trying to improve my experience. I've been trying to find the best streaming service, looking for the highest sound quality. I've been using Pandora One for years... sad I know. anyway, stumbled across this article.

I am on a trial using Beats, definitely an improvement over Pandora. I'm leaning towards Google at this point. There is an interesting service from Qobuz, however they are based in France, the app is in French, but they seem to have real Hq streaming.

In the last week, I tried Beats and Spotify. Beats has some interesting playlists, but did not sound very good. Spotify sounded amazing on virtually every song I tried (on hacked I9300 + RE400s.) The EQ of Spotify is basic but gave just what the RE400s needed.

 

I tried the Google music player app a while back, and it sounded pretty inferior (compared to Poweramp/Neutron) for playing music files. It may be better now though.

I definitely like Google play music the best. I think you can have a different player while streaming google as well. I've yet to. try it though.

I have a Spotify premium account and it's been great for home/portable use specially when using the right gear. It was hacked recently though :( now they are requesting all users to change pass.

I tried Google again. Still sounds worse to me. And add to that "cloud storage" is less good than on device for me.

I'm going to check Spotify out again, it's been a while.
