TO STREAM: Is it the Dream? (Part 2)

Hello again from my home in Framingham. I’m looking out at the over a foot of snow and the swirling winds and thinking this is a good time to write part 2 of my thoughts about music and streaming.

In part 1--last month’s blog or newsletter that you hopefully read in your Boston MA, Metro West, North Shore, or South Shore area home--I talked about how streaming might not be the solution for replacing many of my favorite LP’s and even CD’s. I also promised I would tell you how I viewed the real value of streaming high-end audio and why it is “the dream” for many music lovers. Could be you already know all of this and might even have more useful ways of using streaming, but here are most of mine:

Introducing Black Ice Audio

Explore Audio Solutions from This Revamped Brand

Introducing Black Ice Audio

There's something new at Natural Sound...a brand of audio electronics called Black Ice Audio, which fills a gap in our product offerings: value-priced vacuum tube-powered components. We have always had premium tube products...from VTL, McIntosh, and Rogers High Fidelity, but for clients in the Boston, MA area wishing to explore the magical world of tube amplifiers, pre-amps, and even CD players on a lower budget...we haven't been able to offer them something until now. So, who is Black Ice?
