What could be finer than binging on the 12 audio CD box set, Otis Redding, Soul Manifesto: 1964-1970.
The collection features the eight studio and live albums that Redding recorded between 1964 and 1967, as well as several essential posthumous sets.
The King of Soul’s box set gives me the opportunity to test the Spotify on Chromecast (2.0) solution. There are several features I am really liking such as an effortless find of the Google Chromecast device on the home wireless network (Connect to a device option). Then the pairing with the Spotify Web app which instinctively knows I have used the Apple iPhone Spotify app to connect to the device. (The Spotify device icon states, “You are playing from: Chromecast”, a nice pairing…The audio is smooth at a dedicated 5GB throughput through Chromecast to the SONY Blu-Ray 7.1 Home Theatre sound system.
I’ve been listening to Otis my man from the first track until the Mets World Series game tonight. Wonder how far I’ll get 😉
Part II of this audio binge (next chance I get) will be with Tidal HiFi, Google Chromecast and the Sony Blu-Ray system. The audio fidelity is much better that way 🙂
