What is a music streamer HiFi?
And what do we mean by a music streamer? It’s any component that allows you to play music wirelessly – using a streaming-service app and/or network storage device – to your hi-fi system.
Do CDs sound better than streaming?
CDs obviously sound better than streaming digital files, too. MP3, AAC, WMA are all types of compressed music files. The best compressed digital music files are referred to as lossless because they don’t lose information, but only a few streaming services are able to play lossless or CD-quality audio.
Can Bluetooth stream hi fi music?

What is the highest quality audio format?
Both WAV files and AIFF files represent the highest quality possible in the audio world – they are the files of choice for any mixing or mastering engineer looking to retain the highest quality possible. AIFF files were developed by Apple but also play on the Window’s OS.
Is Spotify 16 or 24 bit?
Tidal provides both lossy formats at lower quality settings and lossless formats at higher settings. Their hi-fi setting is a lossless 44.1, 16-bit file, whereas their Master setting is typically 96kHz, 24-bit.

How can I stream music to my old stereo?
The easiest way to adapt an old stereo for streaming is to add a Bluetooth receiver. This lets you stream wirelessly from a phone, tablet, or computer without having to add or configure a new app. The downside is that Bluetooth does have a subtle effect on sound quality.
