Firstly, having recently upgraded the ole hifi, it has really shown up the sound quality of the Spotify stream compared to CD and records. I have signed up for Amazon HD for a free month and that seems noticeably better, and it is £2 a month cheaper anyway if/when I do start paying, so it seems like a no brainer. I am using a Bluesound streamer, and another advantage is that Amazon music is available through their app whereas Spotify isn’t. Anyone else have Amazon HD? Any drawbacks?
Secondly, I am upgrading the music I have on my hard drive, also streaming through the Bluesound and want to use Flac files or similar hi res files rather than mp3, although I have always used the highest bitrate for these. How do I get the hi res files from Blu Ray discs onto my hard drive with all the relevant tags and so on? I also have Flac files that have been sent to me which I want to load up rather than convert to mp3. Mp3s are so easy to tag with metadata – can I do this with flac easily? Thought I’d ask here rather than flounder around!
