Home Music Lane

It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Close to $20 a month...

I run it using a laptop with their player software installed (OS-X or Win).

I run it out the USB port of my laptop to what I consider a top quality DAC(Audio-GD Master 11 DAC/Headphone Amp) for most listening but I also have it on my SONOS and on my main system via a Mac Mini and another Audio-GD Ladder DAC (Master-7).

Stop by sometime and compare your favorite CDs with what streaming sounds like. I live out at Ocean Beach in the Outer Sunset. There is not that much difference when using a decent computer and a really good DAC.

OK, maybe my CD player sucks, there is always that risk. ;-)

But streaming is so much a part of my musical discovery process that I also subscribe to QOBUZ which has an even larger obscure classical catalog, and sounds just as good if not better?

And I used to have Deezer Elite, another 16/44.1 streaming service as well as ClassicsOnlineHD before they closed it down.

No Cable TV and I get SONIC Gigabit Internet for just $40 a month so I'm $$ ahead of most folks.
