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 🎶 🎼!!

@audioman58 I see several people have already answered your question.  You need a streaming server that does not require an internet connection like Roon. My setup is simple,  I only stream in one location,  my dedicated music room. I use a Cambridge Audio CXN V2 to stream Qobuz. I also have a 1TB drive that is connected to the USB port on the back of my Streamer.  If you are looking for whole house streaming,  you will need a music server with Endpoints.  As I stated earlier, there are tons of solutions mentioned in this post and defer to those since I only stream in one location.  Hopefully you've gotten the info from here.

Enjoy the Music..

Ok thank you, I willlwork on getting a dedicated server streamer, for only one area 

is all I need.


Return to a CD player. As you are finding out, Servers/Streamers are not all that.


Happy Listening!

@audioman58 , gowanus mentioned getting the Eversolo which is all the rage right now. Comes in 2 flavors: $700/1300 which I believe is a great deal for what you get. You can plug in your USB drive until you are able to get a drive that installs directly inside the streamer. With this type of unit, you don't even need a network to play your tunes. DAC/ Preamp/Streamer all in one. Your current drive may be able to install inside the streamer.

Enjoy the Music 


Thank you ,it is as good as innuos they have a $2terabyte server,streamer in their mini is that any good ? I want something I can keep for awhile
