    Spotify or deezer?

    Are they even worth over digital downloads?

    I have over 9000 songs and I don't even know where I got most of them:tpi:
    And I tend to dislike the ups and down quality of each ripped song.

    Would signing up for Spotify/deezer improve the quality of music I listen to?

    I haven't done much searching, but I can add my own mp3s to Spotify and deezer playlist, if I can't find a song right?

    Deezer claims to have a higher number of songs in their library. Are they worth over Spotify?

    None .Download mp3 from YouTube or pirate the original flacs. You can hear them without an internet connection or paid subscription :D

    Neither. I don't have an unlimited data plan. (500MB / month, in fact.)

    The difference in quality in different tracks is quite annoying. Which is why I am leaning towards one of these.
    I got uncapped unlimited. Say you did have internet, have you tried either of those?

    Download full albums/rips on pirate sites then or download from YouTube with max quality.
    Music streaming isn't really worth it for me

    Nope, I prefer files, not streams, stored temporarily. Why? Simply because with files, I have the freedom to play them wherever and whenever I want, not to mention I can use any piece of software to do so.

    It's hard to find any torrent through my ISP :P
    And a lot of the times you can't even find half the stuff I want.

    You can store offline through deezer and Spotify as well?

    But I'm still locked to their music player on which I can't use my soundmods.

    I thought deezer and Spotify supported the use of your own files too?

    Maybe, but I'm sure you have to use their player, which doesn't support external audio effects.

    Mostly equalizers, virtualizers, convolvers, sound stage simulators, stereo mixers etc.

    Would you not be able to just adjust the equaliser according to your needs?

    And do you really need the rest lol

    I like having my effects consistent system wide. Believe it or not, a good soundmod can do wonders for subpar headphones.

    Spotify is great. I love it. Superb for music discovery. Well worth the money. You can dl music for offline.

    Is there a way of signing up without card information?
    Like, pay for a year?
    Lol that seems to be the most common way. But when you have a massive playlist, the difference in quality of the tracks can be quite annoying.

    Yeah I never really understood the point of streaming services. I dont care to have a company or my internet connection determine when or how I can listen to my music. Kinda the same reason I mode my consoles ;] I have used spotify before to find new music and its pretty ok lol

    IRC you can gift cards. Personally, I just pay by card.
