    To buy or not to buy

    YBA Passion amp and CD player, Raidho speakers. I was thinking about buying YBA Passion 550 pre-amp as a DAC. Any recommendations on other DAC's? My concern about Tidal is the limited choice of music. It kind of forces you to listen to what is available rather than to artists I prefer

    To buy or not to buy

    Great, thanks for this! I have just subscribed to Tidal for a free trial period. Let's see what they have Now could you answer my first question replacing Apple Music with Tidal?
  8. Hi All, I recently got hooked to Apple Music due to access to pretty much any music just for $12 a month. Being in a car - this offer cannot be beaten. At home it's a different story where I have a high end stereo and hundreds of CD's that I enjoy very much. This brought me to a question - do I need to buy a high end DAC? The though of streaming any music from Apple Music of something similar for a reasonable subscription price is really seducing me. My main concern is the quality of the end result. So the questions that I am hoping to get answers to: 1. Is streaming from Apple Music to a high end DAC going to be comparable with playing CD on a high end CD player? 2. If the source of music (Apple Music or similar) has low quality, do I need to be bothered with a high end DAC at all? 3. Are there any other subscription services with a wide range of music that offer high quality digital music to stream? I am not considering purchasing separate digital tracks nor would I convert my CD's into digital. I just do not see a point in doing so given that I can achieve the same result simply listening to CD's. Cheers
