I don't know but the audiophile community is pushing network streamers. I would consider moving to streaming, but not if there's a drop in sound quality.
Thank you all for your feedback. I'm not big on specs (bitrate, etc.). I go by how it sounds. I will continue to use hardwired playing of music files to be my preferred method of listening. I'll use Spotify just to discover new music.I think the audiophile community is just trying to sell more boxes.
