Source for high quality music play?

Hello guys, this may be in the wrong forum if so I apologize.

I have recently purchased a new Yamaha STR-7850 and Polk S55 towers and have a new Hsu STF-3 subwoofer coming tomorrow(pretty excited about that!).

With our new system my wife and I have found ourselves listening to a lot more music. We are currently using YouTube through our LG t.v. because we love the variety but some of the recording the quality is not good.

What is a good source for high-quality music with a nice variety?

Your AVR has a great selection of music sources through MusicCast. I would try Tidal or Qobuz for their hi-res audio recordings where the audio quality should CD or higher. I've been using Tidal for a year or so (great military discount if that applies) and love it.

Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer HiFi, or Amazon Music HD all offer lossless CD quality sound

If you'd like to try Qobuz, they are offering 21 free downloads (classical/world/jazz) until 5/15. No payment method is required.

I've used Tidal and Amazon HD and enjoyed them both. Have you used the MusicCast Controller phone/tablet app for you receiver? Network connected apps are convenient in that you can control the receiver from another area while doing something else. They also make searching for music easier than using the receiver remote control.

I have not tried any of the MusicCast features of the receiver.

I am an Amazon Prime member does this mean I have their music also?

You will have access to Prime Music in MP3 format. They should offer you a free trial of Amazon Music HD. Should you try the app, you can select Amazon Music and sign in to your Prime account from there.
