Yes I know that squeezebox can play local files but I would like not to have to switch back and forth. The attraction of spotify is that I can create a playlist and it will incorporate my music. Spotify does not have access to certain groups such as the beatles or the Eagles. I use squeezbox to be able to play on my home stereo. The question is if I upgrade to premium will I be able to play local files using squeezebox and spotify? If the answer is yes please explain how.
