Abandon stream: Part 2

It's been a few months since I left Apple Music to figure out something new as part of the #SovietTough brief. Here's where I've ended up:

  • • Store: Bleep, 7digital, Bandcamp
  • • Library: Homelab running a Samba directory filled with FLACs
  • • iTunes: Swinsain
  • • Speaker: HomePod

I rigged up my HomeLab to host a Samba server. Then Swinsain acts is my library/player: it comes with a preference flag to automagically check a network drive for updates, then I'm playing out via AirPlay to a HomePod.

I'll be changing this to an amp and speaker rig soon I hope 😍

Full nerd. Damn though, I'd forgotten how expensive music is. Convincing myself buying is better than renting in this scenario and that artists might actually see a slither of that coin. 💰
