Hello,

What music service do you prefer and why?

I guess I should start first.

Apple Music for me. It is neatly integrated in all Apple Devices, the UI is quite clean and there is a lot of motion in it (with the animated album arts). It also offers high-res/dolby Atmos (though these can be gimmicky) at no additional charge.
There is ML model that removes vocals (works well).

I tried Spotify but the UI has a lot going on and the bass was weird (too warm and not punchy). Amazon Music Unlimited was jam packed with bugs and nonsensical behaviour.
YouTube Music Premium was OK but still very much work in progress.

Nice thread idea :) It's Spotify for me. I like the layout and the features of playlist backup, and the ability to move the playlists easily. With my hearing going out on me, it makes sounds..lol, that I can understand, so that works for me :) The Roku app isn't to bad, maybe not as intuitive as the desktop, but at least it's with a better audio system than my Windows PC speakers. What helps on the PC is I use the Breakaway audio app, which gives me some control and does improve the sound.

Don't use one. I listen to music 3 ways:
SiriusXM in my car.
On my computer with headphones, I have thousands of songs I've downloaded or burnt from my old vinyl and CD's.
And if I want to shake the walls I load a CD in my 5.1 system.
Shake the walls, like the old Maxwell tape ad :)

Btw I’m diverging from the original topic, has anyone tried the Comply eartips? I bought them for my Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 but I am not convinced they are so great…
I feel the original tips isolate better.

I dont like the tracking and guerilla marketing tactics of Spotify, Apple etc, found and am enjoying this desktop alternative...


"nuclear is a free music streaming program that pulls content from free sources all over the internet. If you know mps-youtube, this is a similar music player but with a GUI. It's also focusing more on audio. Imagine Spotify which you don't have to pay for and with a bigger library."

I mostly listen to Tidal, and YouTube. I used Spotify long time, but when I got my new speakers KEF LS 50W II, I began to hear the difference on Tidal. Jay Z (the owner of Tidal) just put too much hip hop and rap in there. 🥱😇
