Quote from: sanantonio on July 02, 2015, 04:19:19 AMI am trying to get it to work on my PC but so far, it can't load my iTunes library (granted which is huge) - but I hate the forced editorializing with suggestions and playlists, etc. However, if it has gapless playing, I'm there, since this is the main drawback with Spotify and other streaming services. Listening to a long work that is broken into a dozen tracks, and having a hiccup every three minutes or so is infuriating.
Quote from: Gordo on July 02, 2015, 04:15:10 AMAs far as I know, we don't have a general thread devoted to streaming music services...

Quote from: DaveF on July 03, 2015, 12:48:35 PMNo - so thanks for starting this one, since I was just looking for somewhere to ask a question. I'm considering a subscription to Qobuz, and there's a very tempting "link" on this page: http://www.qobuz.com/gb-en/plans/music-streaming-subscription offering a 15-day free trial, but in fact it isn't a link at all and doesn't do anything. (Likewise, the FAQ and Help centre links on the Help page only refer back to the same page - O site, thou art sick, thinks I.) Does anyone know if and how I get the free trial?
Quote from: sanantonio on July 03, 2015, 12:56:29 PMPeople are reporting that after invoking the import iTunes Library into iCloud that Apple Music screws up their iTunes Library's metadata, re-tagging items (sometimes incorrectly or at the very least differently from how you might have painstakingly tagged them), and even putting tracks from one album into another. Really messed up. I am glad my initial attempt failed. I have backed up my itl file and will wait to see if they fix the glitch before attempting again.

Quote from: Holden on July 05, 2015, 02:41:45 AMI use a device from Kaiser Bass called Soundshift. It connects to my stereo amp via RCA plugs and all I have to do is select it on my iPad/iPhone via AirPlay. I've also managed to connect it to my work tablet via WiFi. Both run through my home WiFi network. I am very happy with the sound and the ability to listen to Spotifiy through my system.
Quote from: sanantonio on July 05, 2015, 06:43:11 AMAside from the tagging issue of more concern to me is the DRM issue. That is a policy decision by Apple and not linked to a software update.
Quote from: Mandryka on July 05, 2015, 04:42:09 AMThe reason I'm asking is that, although squeezebox works well for me, it hasn't been supported by Logitech for a long time, and that means that it isn't able to respond to changes in music streamers' formats. Spotify's OK. I rejected qobuz because the squeezebox app wasn't finding all the files available for streaming, and the youtube and soundcloud apps are a total failiour.Let me check with you if you have the time. Does this Soundshift: Stream your own server of lossless and lossy files? Is there a maximum server size?Stream quobuz, soundcloud and youtube? Allow you to search on your tablet? Allow you to use an external DAC? (I know you're happy with the sound but . . . )
Quote from: sanantonio on July 05, 2015, 09:10:32 AMFrom what I understand from reading this article Apple will add DRM to all your music tracks during the importing process to iCloud making it impossible to play them unless you continue buying Apple tunes:
Quote from: mc ukrneal on July 05, 2015, 12:30:07 PMThey have a terrible approach to DRM, always trying to lock you into their services. With this, I became anti-Apple (when they first started doing this funny business years ago) and absolutely refuse to buy anything of theirs. I was hoping their approach to locking you into their software/hardware/services had changed, but apparently not. There is no reason to give any money to Apple when there are better alternatives...
