Streaming services are "Ok".  I subscribe to both Spotify and Pandora, and they are ok for what they are.  But nothing beats the sound of a "good" vinyl pressing played on a "good" sound system.  Well maybe Reel to Reel on a good system.   Been around digital music since its inception and while its come a long way, its still not on par with analog (IMHO).  But it still comes down to play back equipment used, as to what results you get.  In the digital world, I prefer Burr-Brown or Wolfson DAC chips.  Those two manufacturers chips sound more analog to me than say Cirrus Logic, Sabre, etc..    But I have yet to hear the newer Sabre32 ES9018K2M chip.  It gets good marks on paper, but I rely on my ears.   I have a Yamaha R-N602 that I use exclusively for streaming music from Spotify or Pandora and it uses the Burr Brown DSD 1791 chip (reason I went with it).   We use it for streaming music outside.  But if your only streaming music, then research and listen to the various DAC's out there.  Especially if your streaming music via your TV's dac or Chromecast.   You will hear a huge difference.
