    I'd say either one should be fine.

    Apple is consistent about fixing and updating. Well except for the things they aren't consistent about.

    But either one should run your music just fine. I would not cheap out with only 8 GB of RAM, however. Or with a teensy-tinsy SSD.

    I don't have either but have been researching to do the same (currently on an Intel MBP). From what I've watched and read, M1 wins in terms of stability, performance, value for money. FWIW, that's probably the way I'll go when I can afford it. Let us know which you choose, and why! :)

    I use M1 with monterey and up to now I have only encountered a small bug, on the master LED with the latest update, 
    but then resolved thanks to the forum... (I play on average once a week for 4-5 hours continuously) 
    colleagues who use m2 have bugs when using in the evening...

    In that case M2 for sure. 8 performance cores vs 4 performance cores.
