Sharing music has always been a big priority in my life. While the way I’ve come to share music has changed a fair amount over the decades since I started making dupes of cassettes I’d bought, or recording LPs I scored from a record store as a teenager, the underlying desire to connect with others through music hasn’t changed at all.

Choosing a Product of The Year for AudioStream is a balancing act; there’s a lot of pros and cons to weigh when making a decision that is distilling a year’s worth of high-fidelity listening time down to one product that made such a difference that it could qualify earning such a lofty title.
