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 🎶 🎼!!


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 

they have more expensive models also,   Please advise ,Thank you.

@audioman58 I can't comment on that. My digital set is simple.  Cambridge Audio CXN V2 and i connect a 1TB USB drive for local music.  Never a problem. If you are listening to music in one location and don't have a need to stream video around the house IMO a server or NAS is overkill.  You need an appliance that can connect to the internet to stream Qobuz,  Tidal  etc and play music from your local collection.  I believe in KISS.. If you want something more elaborate,  there are tons of suggestions in this thread. 

Enjoy the Music
