I am streaming , how can I play music when provider goes down.

  1. Hello I have been streaming for awhile now ,and have  a 1T server with Flac files on it .  My question  is there anyway I could still play my music when my provider  spectrum goes down ,it can be quite disturbing especially when company comes over . Any ideas or help would greatly be appreciated , no CDs as a option ,    thanks much ,and happy listening 🎶 🎼!!

Pickup a portable music player that plays FLAC files and the largest SD card it will take, 256mb or 512mb on a Surfans. If possible, find one that will bypass the internal DAC so you can stream directly to your system. Then you can listen through a set of nice headphones or connect it digitally out to your system. You can even go for a walk with you music.

@zappas  8-track had to sound better than cassettes because they were BIGGER, right?  So said meeself at age 17.

I copied 250GB (800 CD rips ALAC) from my computer to my phone. I can send music from it to my network player via AirPlay (Bluetooth) if there’s WiFi issues. Plus, my files are backed up on another device (phone) and they are portable.
