I’ve made a similar thread on LET a while ago, however this time around I’d like to know from my fellow Ballers: How do you guys manage/get your music? Do you use subscription services, youtube-dl, good old CDs or do you run your self hosted music station/stream solution?
I have, about a year ago cancelled my Spotify sub for various reasons. One of them being to listen to and select songs more consciously than just listening to some Spotify mix. And ofc dropping the sub. Having to pay monthly adds up. And then Spotify doesn’t even have everything I’d like to listen to. Since then I’ve been using Spotify free to discover music and used Audials One to record my music from Spotify Free or YouTube DL if Spotify didn’t have a song. Being able to record from Spotify Free however often allows for higher music quality than the equivalent on YouTube so I prefer that. I then copy my mp3 files to my phone and use Pulsar Music Player (free+ Chromecast support) on my phone
What about you guys?
