These days, instead of a massive CD library, many of us are turning to the versatility of streaming services like Tidal, Spotify and Deezer. However, to get the most out of these services, and to play all your digital music files, it is important to track down a music streamer - the new way to source and play your 'digital' music.
A music streamer, such as the Sonos Port, works very much like a CD player but instead of a disc with digital music on it spinning around, the digital music is streamed, either from your local computer network or from the internet. There are also products that can rip your CD’s and incorporate on-board storage for your digital music such as the Bluesound Vault. Then there are all-in-one music streamers, such as the Naim Uniti Atom, that have their own internal amplifier which means you just need to connect a set of speakers and you have a complete streaming system.
If you care about ultimate sound quality then you will want to listen to CD quality or even Hi-Res digital files. These can be found on streaming services such as Tidal, whereas other services such as Apple Music & Spotify only stream compressed files which are fine for background music but not really up to snuff if you are serious about sound quality.
Whatever type of music streamer you need, Audio Trends has the right one for you. Please contact us to discuss recommendations for music streamers and music streaming services.
