Apple Music, good enough for me.

    I've used the majority of streaming services over the years and keep finding myself going back to Apple Music. None of the streaming services are perfect and each has its special strengths over the others. I just find Apple music to have the best combination of music catalog, easy to use interfaces, sound quality, and compatibility with my playback devices. Seems like many people focus on bit rates but in practice I find it nearly impossible to distinguish between 320kbps MP3 and 256kbps AAC. Even Tidal lossless streaming wasn't substantially better when listening on my primary speakers. Anyone else have similar findings?

    I agree.

    But I find a lot of Tidal HiFi streams at a bitrate 3-4x higher (on iPhone & Apple TV)and can hear a difference on a lot of stuff I listen too. Haven’t tried Tidal app on Mac via USB yet.
