In a word, no, I haven't tried it, and have no plans to.

Still listening to my thousands of cds.  Not much interested in digital files.

I find it hard to believe they could send tracks of that file size over the internet. Most internet music, due to bandwidth availability and cost, is 128kbps. There are a few 192kbps offerings with a paid subscription and college stations that are 320kbps albeit with unpredictable offerings. The sound quality on the higher kbps is way better than than 128 and below.
I live where there is almost no broadcast anything-TV or radio without huge antennas and a high tolerance for FM hiss in the signal. I listen to internet offerings consistently in my woodworking shop as cds and the players have a short life in dust. 220 feet of ethernet cable delivers it to my shop from my home computer. A Trends T10 ss does the amplification. No tubes. Thats reserved for the home side of my listening. I would love to find better sources but at the price they want per download-yikes. Anybody tried it?

I haven't tried it, yet, but I am going to buy one to see how it sounds.  I have WinAmp and I want to see how a FLAC file sounds.
