Digital or physical media? Since the release of the very first MP3 player, the debate has raged on among music fans, with each side making strong arguments in support of their preferred platform.
Not to discount physical formats - vinyl, in particular, has incredible sound quality bona fides - but if you're looking for the right combination of convenience, fidelity and library size, mobile music streaming may be just the ticket.
Music streaming radio offers incredible convenience
Even vinyl's staunchest supporters would probably concede that there's a lot of legwork involved in listening to a record: setting up your vinyl player, flipping the LP to listen to the other side, switching records when listening to a double album, etc.
One of the biggest benefits you get from a mobile music service is that you can play any song you want right from your phone or mobile device. When paired with a high-quality wireless music system, your phone becomes your entire collection.
That has storage benefits, as well. You don't necessarily need to keep piles of records and CDs within arm's reach to listen to your favorite music. Queue it up on your smartphone, and you're good to go.
A lifetime's worth of music in a tiny package
Collecting all of your favorite albums can be an expensive proposition, especially for purists who only want original pressings. Thanks to the various music streaming platforms available today, music fans can listen to just about any song, album or artist they can think of. From early blues artists like Robert Johnson to unsung punk/emo pioneers like Rites of Spring to the very latest indie rock releases coming from Bat Fangs and Jeff Rosenstock, streaming apps have the entire modern music history landscape covered.
To get the best sound quality out of these music streaming platforms, you'll need to pair them with a high-performance wireless music speaker. HEOS speakers support a wide range of streaming platforms, including:
- Amazon Music
- iHeart Radio
- And many more
The HEOS app is routinely updated and refined to support new streaming services and ensure the best sound quality possible.
