A variety of paid and free services that can either stream music like a radio channel or permit you to browse and select from a collection of music and stream it to your device.

I am personally familiar with Amazon Music, Spotify, and Tidal -- I keep Amazon Music only because it is discounted with my Prime membership. However, Tidal is what I use most often because it offers lossless CD-quality music and they have a reasonably good selection of music I listen to. I have only used Spotify at other people's places and they seem to have a really good selection, but everything is lossy and if I'm going to pay for music it may as well be at the best quality I can get it despite hardly ever being able to hear the differences between high-quality MP3 and CD-quality. I guess I'd just prefer to support a company that is willing and able to give me what's on the disc instead of what I could download.

I'm sure you can Google the rest.

Qobuz and Tidal both offer "lossless" CD-quality (16-bit 44.1 khz losslessly compressed). Beyond that, Tidal supports MQA, while Qobuz has 24-bit HiRez. I like both. I prefer Qobuz in almost every way except in terms of library size, in which Tidal has the edge... I don't really like the economics of MQA.

BlueSound is Roon-Ready, too... and Tidal and Qobuz both support Roon Integration. Roon is great. Bluesound devices aren't cheap. You've paid a premium price for a premium product; IMO you might as well feed it some premium content (Tidal/Roon), and if you've got a big library of your own CD rips, consider integrating them together with your subscription(s) via Roon...
