Whereas I'd just suggest she gives up on Spotify, and starts listening to music in decent quality again.

Well there is that, too Smile

Decent music, at least.*

EDIT - she could also try knowing her point, getting more sleep...

 

*As in "she could try listening to". Sorry, I seem to be finding it hard work. Rather like the author of that article, really. Still, we all have bad days.

RE: Has computer based media killed music?

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

It has suffered from compression associated with streaming and downloads, but it has also unleashed huge potential by making music more available and making lossless and hi resolution streaming from a NAS/HDD, etc. possible.

ATV -> NuForce Icon HDP -> Genelec 8020C

In this case I don't think it's the file choice that's spoils the enjoyment, rather the choice of playback equipment and the listening environment.

Slightly off topic but I don't have the equipment or hearing ability necessary to tell the difference between a good 'Mastered for iTunes' download and a lossless file.  So I opt for convenience as quality is not an issue for me.

RE: Has computer based media killed music?

Sounds like she is just playing it on her laptop and laptop speakers, so no wonder, as for graphic equaliser there maybe one on her soundcard. Services like Spotify and Rdio mean I listen to far more music than before. No wonder she is bored if she only plays one artist. The whole point is you can play loads of different stuff not just the ones you have bought, you don't get bored and you discover new music. Streaming music is not the problem.

Listen to the music, not the hifi.
