I've been looking into alternatives, but I'm finding options are pretty limited with what I need. I'm ultimately looking for a service that is similar, but still offers me the things I enjoyed about Subsonic. Mainly having access to my files still (no uploading needed), iOS and OSX apps and a web interface. There just aren't a lot of them out there. The closest is jRiver but there is no iOS app.
So I started looking into the cloud solutions and all three have pros & cons but neither is blowing me away.
- iTunes Match -- $25 year and matching of up to 25000 songs (at a higher quality) is pretty awesome, but it replaces all your content with clean versions. Plus if I understand correctly it needs to download the whole song before playing whereas Subsonic does stream + buffer
- Amazon Cloud Player -- again, fairly cheap at $25 a year. Where this becomes less than a great deal is the lack of match/quality upgrade is lacking. In my reading Apple's AAC is better than a MP3.
- Google Music -- Aside from trying to avoid Google Music, I believe there is still no native desktop client and I was less than thrilled with their interface and lack of ability to manage your files
- I also pay for Rdio, so is this complete overkill at this point?
