    Aloha!

    I've posted here before, but haven't in a long time, so I'm a newbie retread.

    After many years with BlackBerry (up to the Passport) and Android (up to the Samsung Galaxy S7), I have come back to iPhone and iPad.

    Why? Two reasons.

    1.) I love Apple Music. Truly. Yes, I can get Apple Music on Droid, but it is NOT the same experience without the GUI that iPhone/iPad provides. It feels like a totally different experience on a non Apple product. And as an Audiophile, I do love Airplay. It's awesome.

    2.) I love Google, but don't want the world to be totally Google-Ville. A monopoly is not good for anyone. Apple is the only company that can still compete with Google, so I am happy to support Apple.

    I first came back by activating my iPhone 4s and my iPad 2. In 2017? A 4s and an iPad 2 ? Yep. And although both are "slow", they worked GREAT. Actually so good I almost didn't upgrade, but finally took the plunge and got an iPhone 8 and an iPad Pro. But I still use the 4s and the iPad2 as Apple Music Streaming devices with Airplay.

    So there you have it. I'm back.

    Mahalo!

    Thanks guys.

    I have REALLY been enjoying my iPhone 8 and iPad Pro. Amazing machines. Truly. As an audiophile, you just have to love Apple Airplay. Now, I WISH Apple did Bluetooth Apt-X lossless so I could enjoy high fidelity Bluetooth streaming to my Apt-X Bluetooth devices, but at least I have Airplay, and Airplay is AMAZING!

    I'm now a iPhone Power User. Too bad I can't change my user name!

    Welcome back! I also used to use Blackberry and Android a lot, but I’ve been happy on iOS for many years now. Though I do have an Android for a work phone.

    Thank you.

    Coincidentally, I also have a work Droid. I like it very much, but as I posted, as a hard core audiophile, iPhone really was designed with music in mind and I love that. Plus, iOS seems a little more "fun" or "enjoyable" to me. Don't know how else to put that.

    The iPhone / iPad are just BEASTS for serious audio playback. Airplay is just brilliant. Totally lossless streaming to my hi fidelity stereo systems. I have a few vintage systems from the 70s like Pioneer, Yamaha and McIntosh. These are very high end systems and hooking them up to an Airplay receiver and then streaming Apple Music to them via Airplay is just amazing. I believe Apple Music streams at 256 AAC and that's very high fidelity to all but the must discriminating Audiophile.

    If you want totally lossless high fidelity, you can always go with a subscription to Tidal High Resolution Streaming Service and stream at resolutions that are in the true High Resolution class, but I'm happy with Apple Music's streaming rate. And you lose nothing with Airplay transfer to your system, so it's a winner.

    Apple’s 256 AAC is good enough for my primarily Parasound system.
