    What is Streaming?

    It is the supposed sound quality, one review reckons it is better than the Bluesound Node 2 and Pioneer N50. Yes I could use my DAC. Price appeals now. CCA does not seem to support some services such as Tidal. Not sure about the others as have not checked yet.

    Anyone using the Arcam rPlay? I see that is only £249 now.

    OK thanks but I have just read on a Spotify forum that I will need Spotify Premium account to be able to connect to the Bluesound streamer.

    OK thanks that may work. So how do I access Spotify if I use Bluesound, if I use my ipad that is a mobile device?

    My wifi is not very good, ipad is far slower than my computer, so I don't think it will be good enough for streaming music. Services like Deezer and Spotify you can use free on a computer but on a mobile device then you need to subscribe. So I don't know if you wire in a streamer if you need a subscription or not.

    Thanks, yes moving the computer is something I'm considering next year. If I say buy a Bluesound Node that will be wired to the internet and then can be controlled by my ipad, I don't have a smart phone and don't want one either. Will the Bluesound count as a mobile device or a computer?

    Sorry I don't understand this. What has the BBC got to do with streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer and Tidal? I'm not interested in any BBC radio.

    I'm trying to understand what a streamer adds, I thought the more expensive ones had a remote which controlled it but it seems not, so you still need a smartphone or tablet etc? I'm not keen on wifi, so does a streamer get around that or do I still need wifi to control it? At the moment I use a computer and it is just wired into the DAC. I have tried Tidal, sound quality I could not tell apart from my cd player.

    I thought the whole point was a streamer replaces the computer, now it seems you need both. I'm confused by some of the earlier posts.

    Well this confused me as it sounds like you don't need a phone or tablet: "A dedicated streamer will be the same inside as your average mobile or tablet but will be dedicated to a single purpose. Obviously you can re-purpose an old device but that is a choice. " So now people are saying I need a phone or tablet or computer as well as a streamer?

    That's what I said many posts back. This is going round in circles.

    So what is the cheapest dedicated streamer which you don't need a phone or tablet to operate it?

    But don't you need a phone or something to operate it?
