I haven't seen Doyle 2.0 since 2001 when he opened for Eric Clapton.  His latest album is pretty good IMO, but skip the vinyl, it's a muddled mess.  I'll never understand how people screw up so badly on mastering an album, but think of what T-Bone Burnett did to the Leon/Elton record.  The CD or a Tidal stream is better.

Anyway, I get to see him in Charlotte on 2/16 and I got some good tickets for a reasonable price.  Looking forward to it.  The guy can really abuse an electric guitar and the venue has good sound.  Should be a good night...

Hey Ed, I've been streaming Spotify (as well as Tidal which has higher rez than spot) through my two squeezebox touches>dac>truth>FW F3>GHH's for many many years.  In my system, Spotify doesn't sound bad at all...pretty good actually...Tidal a little better.  FLAC files also stream through my Squeezeboxes.  It's great to have so much music at your fingertips and Discover Weekly gives me a 30 song playlist which I archive.  It's nice to have a master playlist of some great stuff that I would never hear and if I like it enough, I will buy the vinyl (Transcendent Sound pre amp for my turntable) or buy the FLAC file through HD Tracks or just pull it up on Tidal.

Come to Houston and listen to my system!  Just watch out for the hurricanes.

Hey Ed, I haven't played with spotify.  I use Tidal hifi because Best Buy had a deal where you could get 6 months free with a music purchase.  I just use a chromecast audio dongel connected via wifi.  It sounds very good as the Tidal hifi version is supposedly lossless files.  I haven't tried Tidal standard.

Tidal hifi costs $20/mo. and standard is $10/mo.  Tidal has lots of content, even some Truckstop Preachers tunes. I'll probably pay the $20 once the six month trial is up.  You may find Tidal free trials if you are interested.

Some of the youtube content sounds pretty good as well, but I don't use it much.

Ok, Intel Compute Stick into 55" Smart TV, Stick is hooked to TV via HDMI. TV has optical digital output, this goes into our Cal Audio Labs DAC which is hooked to stereo. TV outputs all sources on the optical out.

You Tube audio is damn good. Spotify is unlistenable . I mean, so God awful bad it hurts my ears. How do people listen to this? The difference between the two is staggering.

I've not tried other streaming audio but all Movies and You Tube are pretty freaking good. Spotify on the other hand is simply awful.

Most everything running through TV is very, very good.

 Anyone else have any opinions on Spotify vs. YT sound quality?
