Ernesto finally got an iPhone 7, but he can't use iTunes with it because his Mac is too old. Leo says that if he wants to sync it via wire, then he'll have to update his computer. He could pay the $25 for iTunes Match, and that would put his entire music collection up in the cloud. Then he could access the music from his current Mac as well.
Rick s frustrated with iTunes. It seems to have a mind of its own. It wants to manage his own personal music and deletes some of it randomly. Is there a substitute that gives him more control over his music and podcasts? Unfortunately, iTunes has taken up all the air in the room in this category and most of the alternatives have dried up. But there are some third party programs to consider:
Ted wants to listen to his music via Airplay, but he doesn't like that it's compressed. Leo says yes, music streamed over Wi-Fi will be compressed. So it's best to keep it all wired as a result. Since Ted has such great speakers, he'll want to get a digital to analog converter to play the music through his computer. He should rip his CDs using Apple lossless or FLAC. FIIO is a good company for DACs.
