Finally got on the spotify wagon, I listen to a lot of non-murican music and half the fucking artists are missing half their discographies. What gives?
>>118327534Get off that shitty wagon.
>>118327534spotify is exclusively for normies
they dont even have flaci have a $500 sound system and i would prefer to take full advantage of it
spotify is a joke in the patrician scene
>>118328098Spotify’s sound quality isn’t great but you’re a retard if you think you can hear the difference between FLAC and MP3
>>118329549last I looked into it spotify doesn't even use mp3, just vorbis or aac at a low enough bitrate that it still sounds like ass
>>118329549you're right but spotify's bitrate is garbage
>>118327534spotify sucks, the only good reason to use it is to share your music or playlists with normies
>>118328098>muh flacI guarantee you wouldn't be able to tell the difference in a blind test >inb4 I totally could please stop embarrassing yourself
>>118329549you lack ears, not even joking
>le .flac file meme>>using your phone speaker>>>>>>>>>>using cheap earphones >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>using bluetooth earphonesUnless you use the newest Sony audiophile Walkman, file format ain't doing jack
>>118327534It’s labels and rights bullshit. You are sold a truncated version of music history because they are cheap bastards defiling the very point of the platform.
>>118331828the only time you could tell is Death Magnetic
>>118327534spotify only hosts good music, sorry anon
>>118327534>Finally got on the spotify wagonMe too. Been a long month working from zero for the first time in two decades creating various lists.I call on all anons to tell me their number one song, thanks in advance.
>>118327534i back this up with full confidencefront 242, x marks the pedwalk, and meat beat manifesto have utterly butchered discographies on spotify
>>118327534>>118328075what is a good alternative?
>>118327534>I listen to a lot of non-murican musicyou should die
>>118336290maintain your music library yourselfkeep proper rips in whatever lossless format you want and transcode to something sane like opus for listening on the go
>>118337608>transcode to something sane like opus for listening on the goyou can just get a microsd card for your phone so you can take your flacs with you, bro
>>118337703i use an ipod with rockbox, personally. thats also an option, i cant believe micro sds are available in such large sizes these days. it doesn't really matter too much though, the dacs on most smartphones are such dogshit anyway, and opus is extremely tolerable at even like 128kbps which saves a bunch of space (allegedly the transparency barrier is like 96kbps)
For me, it's Pandora. Simple as.
