I have decided to try a 30 day trial of Spotify premium. This is kind of alien to me, really, as my whole music listening past has been focussed on collecting music – mostly in album form – and the concept of merely accessing music from the web is anathema.

I’ve installed the Mac app, the iPad app and the Logitech Media Server plugin.

Actually, though, I can see this being an avenue to listen to music before buying it in a higher resolution format (I usually go for flac). I will give Spotify a month (i.e. the trial), then decide whether I’m really going to be getting £9.99 (per month) of value from it. Even the Premium account delivers pretty lo-res music.
