Simply Streaming… Music Streaming for Beginners

Saturday 10th November, 12pm (FULL) & 3pm (FULL)

Music Streaming for Beginners - Simply Streaming

You’ve heard about it, some of your friends are doing it and apparently it can be very good… better even than CDs. But just what is music streaming? How do you go about it? And what do you do with all those CDs you’ve collected?!

For over ten years we’ve been extolling the virtues of music streaming, as the way we listen to music has changed beyond all recognition. A decade ago, compact discs accounted for over 80% of recorded music sales; streaming was only just emerging as a serious format contender. Fast forward to 2018 and CDs now make up less than 20% of music sales. But wait! That doesn’t mean your collection of five inch silver discs is obsolete; far from it. In fact, we’ll show you how to make those discs sound better.

Join us at Loud & Clear to discover the infinite and glorious world of digital music streaming. It’s fun, it’s free and it’s informal. We’ll explain the basics of streaming high quality music over a home network, demonstrating:

  • What you need to get started (less than you think)
  • How to rip and store your CDs losslessly (on a device smaller than a shoe-box)
  • All you need to know about streaming services (TIDAL, Spotify, Qobuz, etc)
  • Explore the world (literally) of Internet Radio
  • How to access ‘HD’ or “studio master” music
  • The dem – CD playback vs. the same CD, streamed vs. studio master
  • Q&A
