Belt drive turntables are universally recognized in the audiophile community as FAR SUPERIOR to direct drive tables in terms of sound quality. Get a clue Bob.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Well... It's true that in some models the direct drive motor may generate vibrations that can affect sound quality. But this issue can be addressed with the use of shock absorbers between the platter and the motor. ALSO, belt drive turntables have lower torque, so they can have less accurate playback speed. The belt will eventually wear and need to be replaced. No simple answer here.

Try exploretunes.com. It's music you can choose and ad a play list and much more. Shoutcast is also a very good choice of music radio stations of any genre category.

I find most any music I want to hear on YouTube. I record it using Audacity and save it to my hard drive, then listen to it whenever I want. Some may consider it a lot of work, but I've got a considerable library of music WITHOUT spending a considerable amount of cash.

There is a site where you can stream or download 1,000s of live songs/shows for free.

Vinyl, CDs, then if I get too lazy to get up Amazon Music and if I don't feel like picking it I go to Sirius-XM where a real DJ who actually knows something about music, often knows the artist personally, picks the tunes and sometimes tells me something I didn't know about it as well as picking new songs for me to enjoy. I hate computer selected music, I hate shuffle mode. I'm no luddite or I wouldn't be reading this, but music is too special to leave to an AI. IMNSHO

I love, love, love AccuRadio (accuradio.com). It's free (you have to sign up but it's free) and you can pick among many different channels and kinds of music. They do play what they want but you can rate songs and then usually they will play those songs for you more often. You can also skip a song if you don't like it. And, they have a free app for Android (probably iPhone also but I don't know because I have an Android phone).

Thanks Bob! I've used most of your suggestions and all have made me very happy with the music available. I recently donated over 300 cds to a local non profit radio station that has not gone digital. Now most of my music is digital, iPod, on my tablet or computer and an internet radio.I have kept the stereo system with the turntable, but as I downsize my possessions, I think the vinyl will go next. I agree with Jack about turntables, but unlike him I didn't think this was an article about sound quality.

What about YouTube? There's a wealth of music of every kind, most with acceptable audio quality.

While discussing free music on the net, it should not be out of bounds to ask you: What is the legality of readily available free apps that ignore the video part of a YouTube video, and create a mp3 file from the audio? All one needs do is input the video's URL.

Thank you for your time and effort.

Good suggestions, Bob, although Pandora is only available in the US, Australia and NZ. Also, am listening to Slacker now and it seems I have to click on the PLAY (>) button for every track, not sure I want to interrupt what I am doing every time, but it is good music.

Toronto at 91.1 on your FM dial www.jazz.fm is an NPO and also is more than happy to accept support.

I like the options offered by Google Music, especially their playlists that are good ways to hear new music. My YouTube red subscription includes Google Music so I get the music as well as unlimited ad free YouTube videos.

Obviously you're not a bodybuilder Bob.

Thanks for another great article!

Don't forget Music2pc: http://www.music2pc.com

It's a non-bittorrent and non-peer-to-peer tool to find and download MP3 tracks from a large database.

I have an old BSR turntable with a diamond needle and a decent selection of LPs to choose from (some are duplicates as I had inherited them).
Great article, Bob! :-)

This past decade has been disastrous for most of us who are trying to earn money from our music. Finally, after ten years on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and scores of other streaming services, I have instructed my distributor to allow my contract to lapse later this week when it comes due for its annual renewal. In the whole ten years together, I could not earn enough to pay for even one year's distribution fee.

Spotify pays the artist $.00001 per listen. While a few of the very hot and heavily promoted singers are making tons of money, those with maybe something to say but no big advertising budgets to say it with were left out of the revolution.

If you subscribe to Amazon Prime and have an Echo, you can stream thousands of songs for no additional cost. Some tunes can only be streamed if you subscribe to Amazon's music service but the number of songs available without a subscription is huge. Remember Beep Beep by the Play=mates? Alexa does.

Live 365 (live365.com) is back operating again and streaming radio stations. No choice, no playlist, no skip but its free. Myself I listen to Jambalaya Jam when I want tunes, it's free too and it plays my favorite genre, Zydeco,Blues, New Orleans sounds and I can't put it down!
