How do you listen to your music?
I use Apple Music, and previously used Spotify and Pandora. I really like my current setup. :)

We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And in my heart I can't contain it
The anthem won't explain it."

I usually download my music from YT and then I listen to it on either iTunes or whatever media player came bundled with Android :P

Usually, I listen to music with my ears :p

I belong to the dying species, who's buying CDs. But I don't listen to them :D

They become ripped as MP3 and migrate to my external HDD, which is connected to my Yamaha-Receiver. And I can simply copy them on my 64GB MicroSD-Card in my smartphone. From there, I listen to them with my Magnat Headphones (I think, I posted a picture of them in the Last Purchases thread).

I want to buy a Bluetooth-speaker for my phone, but I had some problems (which I will talk about in Campion's Computer Corner later).

Maybe I'll one-up Darkling here.

Stuck in the past with CDs.  Once bought I rip them to FLAC files, and listen to them through my Sennheiser 598s.  Not a fan of bluetooth so no bluetooth speakers.  On my phone/media player, I use the AAC codec from Apple Quicktime.

Everything sounds amazing!  I can't stand streaming quality and Sirius is even worse.

YouTube. Or if I really like a song I rip it off YT and save it in a file in my computer to play with VLC Media Player when I don't want to be distracted or I'm practicing in my studio downstairs where I don't get internet.

When I'm lying in the sleeping room and I don't want to turn on the receiver in the living room (they are just separated through a archway), I use this bluetooth-speaker (it's the S777 10 Watt version)

Before I got an iPod about a year ago, I was using a Walkman CD player. Since then I have discovered the wonderfully convenient package that is the nano. I already had all my favorite stuff on CDs, so I just had to burn it to my computer and put it on.
Now I can't imagine going back.
So much music (and all my Redwall Audiobooks) in such a small piece of tech.
Anyway...I'm writing too much about this, so I'll leave it there.
I've missed this place.
Check out my Deviant Art page. But only if you feel like it.

Mostly Spotify, though occasionally I listen to the radio.

A long time, I used an external HDD on my Yamaha-receiver, but that won't work reliable anymore - whyever :meh

Now, I use the mp3's, stored on my computer. They are shared via WMP and I access them with my Yamaha-receiver (PC -> LAN-cable -> Fritz!Box -> LAN-cable -> Receiver).

Still the same. Although, I DO have more CDs now, so sometimes I pop one of those into my laptop or practice to them. :fiver
