    While I've got Amazon Prime for streaming music I don't like that aspect of it too much - I like to be able to "thumb through" my album collection until I see something I like. Having the entire world of music at my fingertips, I might be stuck what to pick Amazon lets you add Prime (free) stuff to your collection, no idea about Spotify?

    Also, Amazon streaming music is flaky for me which makes me dubious. On both iOS and Android devices it gets the odd stutter and sometimes playback will just hang until I skip to the next track. Which is crazy with Fibre... bad developers I reckon.

    If you are in Virgin fibre I'm finding it far more flaky than it used to be with very short term (seconds) routing issues that would cause that sort of problem.

    Never had a problem with Spotify, both at home and out and about.

    BT. But I still blame the software... streaming should be fundamentally designed to come with crappy network conditions since so many people use it on their phones. I imagine it is something like you describe... every now and then a page load stalls but is 99% of the time lightning quick?

    Odd, I have had no issues with streaming Amazon Prime music, whether at home on a crappy DSL, random WiFi here and there or 3G/4G. If the mobile signal goes too weak the playback just stops and tries to buffer, no constant stutter or crackle or w/e. that's on PC, Mac, Sonos, iPhone

    This.

    My music is mostly in Dropbox which is then syncronised with a folder on my NAS. Sonos then accesses that shared folder as well to build the library.

    The stutter is only a very slight one, every now and then... just enough to be noticeable.

    Playback stopping and buffering if there's an issue is annoying but fine... but in my case it never seems to fix itself. It will sit buffering forever until I sort it. When listening to music in the bath that's a PITA if you don't want to get a wet phone

    So NAS... he's one of the artists I can listen to? Hiphop yes?

    I have 2 and they have never faltered. my netgear stora & buffalos I'm sorry to say are flaky.
