As a status update to my earlier post about Sirius/XM audio quality, I cancelled my subscription and have now become a disciple of Spotify. Although I will miss some of the curated shows, especially Dave Koz, it's a minor loss for much better audio quality with Spotify Premium. Plus, I save $10/month, enough for a couple of lattes from Starbucks.

Right but now you use your internet bandwidth for playing background music.

There's no such thing as 'background' music in my house.

Spotify has plenty of curated playlists. I have all 4 - Spotify, Sirius, Starbucks and bandwidth. Not worried about the pocket change.

I did say curated *shows*, with a live host, like Dave Koz. Maybe hosted would have been a better word? Does Spotify have those? Please enlighten me on where to find if so.

I'm happy for you that you have everything, including petty cash.
