Sonos has transformed my house!
Hi all I had posted similar on computer based music thread but feel it is more appropriate here.
I spent weeks ripping my CD collection to ALAC in prep for my Sonos and Qnap NAS. I bought the ZP90 yesterday and installed it.
Streamed some stuff from the MacBook Pro all good. Listened to our Napster account good fun my wife loves Napster using the iOS on iPhone which is a first her playing loads of music as she couldn't be bothered with hunting down CD's.
I signed up for Spotify premium and wow amazing. I have spent hours listening to music that I haven't heard for years and never owned. The SQ is fantastic at 320kbps maybe not as good as lossless but I don't care can not really tell much of a difference.
What I can say is I have never enjoyed any system I have owned as much as I am now. This is fantastic. Millions of tracks at my disposal in v good SQ all controlled from my iPhone.
My point is my Micromega CD transport is now on eBay and I can't see any reason for buying the NAS for my rippedI CD collection as I can have all I want to play through Spotify premium. It is liberating.
Any views people? No debates on 320kbps vs lossless formats as it sounds great to me maybe because I am enjoying the music rather than studying the sound for once. Plus there are all the Internet radio stations and other music sources plus multiroom. No I don't work for Sonos but it is the best bit of kit I have bought for years!!
