    Did not know that Jonathan Schwartz had his own channel. Will have to listen to that when I get a chance.

    My main streaming franken-rig:

    Spotify Premium on vintage ThinkPad T43 W7 laptop over wi-fi to my router > JRiver WDM driver > JRiver DSP (for occasional oversampling) out to WASAPI > generic USB cable > Metrum Musette NOS DAC > Adcom GFP-565 (DarkVoice 336SE in tube buffer duty in the processor loop, mood depending) > Yamaha MX-600u > JBL L100 Centurys

    Sounds good to my ears, hoping Spotify will come to their senses and offer lossless streaming at some point in the future.

    I stream Spotify Premium mostly from Sony HAPZ1 USB out ->Auralic Vega DAC->PS Audio PCA-2+HCPS preamp->Auralic Merak Mono block amps->Wilson Audio Sophia 2 speakers.

    Spotify Premium is OK, not Tidal quality though

    I agree that SQ from Spotify Premium is "ok" but its good enough and their catalog makes it worth while imho.

    Google Music -> Lexicon Alpha -> ( Sennheiser HD280 Pro | Grado SR60 )

    Will probably add an old receiver into the chain.

    Wow! What a great thread. I really enjoy seeing what you guys are using in your systems. I am currently streaming two ways. My original method was Tidal HIFI or Spotify Premium via laptop usb---Lampucera DAC--Fisher 400CX-2--Pioneer A88x -- Nola Brio Trio Clones with dual 15" OB subs.

    Then I purchased a Chromecast Audio puck and that replaced my laptop. I love the ease of this but I think I like the sound of my original setup better. I will have to A/B them this week.

    Apparently I can use my Asus Zenwatch to control Spotify as well. Like a remote for the phone haha.
