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.

Turntable and streamer with hard drive. I have an Innuos streamer that holds 2500 albums. You can rip (copy) from a cd or from the the streamer.
