What wifi music systems do you use?

I listen to music pretty much from internet stations like spotify, youtube music etc using wifi phone/laptop and using wireless headsets. But looking at various comments on drop, I feel I am obviously missing something. I do not think I want to go back to CDs and wired systems. What are the some really good wireless music systems I should look at? I am ok with cost in few thousand USD.

Spotify's highest quality setting is honestly extremely good - some people may be willing to pay the premium for Tidal, but even with the equipment I have, Spotify is satisfactory. If you want good wireless systems, try something with an LDAC connection (like a Topping DX3, D50s, etc) or a wifi streaming solution - the Chromecast audio has been discontinued, but is still available in lots of places, and sounds great as the source for a good amp.

I use my Topping DX3 Pro as a digital receiver and pre-amp to stream TIDAL from my iPhone via the Bluetooth connection (44.1 / 16 bit i.e. CD quality). The DX3 is connected to my integrated amp, so I can then play music via my speakers or headphones.

I also came across Dynaudio Xeo 2 wireless. Seems to be equivalent to KEF LSX. I will go hear them and then decide. Though I missed the sale on KEFs.
I've not listened to the Xeo but I do like Dynaudio designs... should be a good option for an audition.
A streamer with bluetooth would treat you right from a wireless source front to a traditional stereo/home theater. Stuff like Bluesound Node or the amplified version to drive passive speakers work well on the cheaper front. If you want a fully wireless solution(speakers, source, amp and app) the KEF LSX or LS50 wireless are good options (800 to 2200). Higher end wireless sources would be something like Matrix Element M/X, Mytek Brooklyn Bridge, Auralic Altair/Aries and Ifi iDAC Pro

Why are subwoofers so expensive?
Big drivers with big magnets, high power amps, DSP and an overly built box to keep vibrations down. I always recommend to "buy once, cry once" on subs. Never had a friend complain of too much sub, definitely had some "go cheap" and then complain about too little.
