I have a love/hate relationship with Apple. I hate that I keep buying their gear and love to complain about them.
I still can't bring myself to finish ripping all of my CDs when I can stream music so easily from various services. I do love how, when using the iTune Remote app in my iPhone with an active subscription to Apple Music, albums I've ripped from my CDs and also those I've downloaded from Apple Music are grouped together seamlessly in my Mac and my phone acts like a jukebox music selector and I can Airplay the music from my Mac to any one or all of my Airplay 2 receivers at the same time with no Zone limitations with just a few taps on my iPhone. This is no small thing as other setups do not allow for casting to multiple zones. Volume levels of all of the receivers can be controlled by the iPhone as well.
For those with active Apple Music subscriptions and an iOS device, it is all too easy to simply download lossless or hi-res versions of albums and then output them via 3.5mm cable from an older iOS device or via lightning to 3.5mm adapter and cable on a newer iOS device to connect to a radio with a 3.5mm AUX port. Connecting a lightning to USB A adapter to a newer iOS device and also to a USB DAC connected to the 3.5mm cable will allow for hi-res output for those who want it. I may treat myself to a USB DAC for Christmas. Damn you Apple!
For those with Best Buy Rewards accounts and Apple IDs and iOS devices who want to check all of this out discreetly, you can currently get up to four months of Apple Music for FREE when purchased through Best Buy. You can then Airplay lossless audio to an Airplay 2 receiver or physically connect to a device using the mentioned adapters, cables and DACs.
