Today, sales of most physical music have continued to plummet. Even downloads of MP3s have tailed off. After taking this trip down memory lane, it’s easy to get caught up in the nostalgia. A day doesn’t go by that someone doesn’t talk about how bad music today is, and in our industry, about how convenience has become far too important. But as the title of this post suggests, I’d like to make the argument that now, today -- is the best time we have ever seen to discover and enjoy music.
How do you get great music all over your home? Well, that is where Sonos comes in. Back in 2002 when Sonos was first born, they had the foresight to see all of this coming. Their great products have become the best-selling ever at Audio Advice. What I really like is that our customers who have Sonos love it.
For just $20 per month you can enter the name of a favorite artist and in most cases have their entire discography available at your fingertips. That is such a great feeling! From there you can see related artists, play an artist's radio station, build and manage your own playlists and even share playlists with your friends. While these things are not unique to Tidal, what is unique is their huge selection of music choices provided with full CD resolution streaming.
