Maybe I am behind the times but I just subscribed to my first streaming service today with Apple Music.Choose them simply because I use Itunes and Idevices and it was easy.
I have always owned my music with thousands of CDs and hundreds of purchased downloads and will continue to do so but what are your thoughts on streaming as far as the listener,not the artist ?(another subject)
So far,after a day,it would seem to me,why would anyone buy anything ever gain,if they can stream it.I have always been a lossless user so will probably go over to Tidal if I stay with this.
I know it has been many years you can stream for free as well,You tube being a prime example.
My original idea was to have a service where I can sample whole albums (similar to Bandcamp) before buying,including major artists.Then if interested,buy.I listen mostly at home and with my portable device (Astell & Kern AK 240,look it up) where I have no internet access so streaming does not work in that capacity but at work,stream while there.
Does anyone have a preferred service that caters more to ambient and electronic artists that we listen to here on this site,maybe Spotify or Tidal?
So far,on Apple,there have only been a few artists I could not find.
