I was curious to know what everyone here considers their favorite music service for the Squeezebox. I am a Rhapsody fan but I like to browse through multiple services because I always feel I might be missing something better. Lets see who takes the cake, which service is most popular among our peers.

I used Rhapsody for the free trial. It seems they have everything until your personal collection reveals they aren't really deep (in age) with most artists' collections.

I'm using Pandora, realy happy with it. And paying for it.

It is the only music service I have found that dosen't make strange mixes when you speicify a song. Not like Last.fm, Napster or SlackerI have tried.

Example, when you chose Stairway to Heaven or Nothing Else Matters from Metallica and want to enjoy some "softer" music it will not jump to the heavy metals songs but continue in that style.

Regards,

Alex

Rhapsody is great. I listen to Slacker and Pandora and Last.FM too. They are good for random music and discovering new stuff. Then when I hear something I like, I can listen to the whole album, and other albums by that artist, on Rhapsody. Rhapsody also has what they call channels that work like Pandora and Slacker. Those are good too. I also love being able to make playlists with Rhapsody.

Rhapsody is like having a huge-mongous jukebox that I can listen to with my Squeezebox. Even better - I can listen to all my downloaded favorites on the go with my mp3 player. It's a mobile jukebox. And if I avoid buying just one crappy CD a month, it pays for itself. Fun stuff...

I can't believe more people don't "get" Rhapsody. It's a no brainer.

I use last.fm, Slacker and Pandora. I find that last.fm has the widest and deepest selection of music for someone like me with unusual likes. (Including singer-songwriter, Latin pop, Scandinavian folk, Celtic, etc.) After about a year and a half on the service, it's amazing how well it predicts music I'll like. I'll be going to the paid service when the free one ends soon.

I use both Slacker and LastFm the most. Both are great for hearing new stuff, plus I like the "radio" feel I get from them. Love all of my custom stations on Slacker. I also really enjoy listening to my friends' stations on LastFM and seeing what they have been listening to.

Rhapsody is not easy to use if you are not in the US... The work around is easier for Pandora.

You gotta hate that kind of limitations. There is no world wide regualtion for music rights.
