Paul Oakenfold

he is the master of  radio one essential mixes. he has done over 30 of them. His programming/ track selection is magnificent. the only DJ that can really keep you entertained for 2 hours at a time. (please note that most of his essential mixes prior to 2000 was mixed from vinyl)

and the man himself talks loudspeakers:(if component setups are your thing) i prefer earphones an pc's






youtube-dl;

SO NOW YOU CAN DOWNLOAD YOUR AUDIO FROM YOUTUBE FOR FREE AND CHOOSE EXACTLY THE FORMAT YOU WANT

like youtube-dl(.exe) -f 140 (or 251 for opus) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=(youtube id)

if opus gets downloaded in a webm container (which foobar2000 wont play because it looks at the file extension  and doesnt recognize webm ) then use ffmpeg -i 1.webm -c:a copy 2.opus  and then without quality loss you can listen  in foobar2000 to that opus file.
 






for ffmpeg to copy :

and general audio conversion from ffmpeg:




protect your ears:









be aware of snapcraft. it allows you to install windows programs on linux (ubuntu in my case). so you can run windows programs  on linux no need for windows:





and if you are into cellphone sound:

for android:







for iphone:
