Want to start downloading music and have been on the amazon web page. Cannot find any info on the compression rate they use and want to get the best quality music possible. can anybody recommend me a site?
I'd recommend Spotify. The 'extreme' quality you get on the premium service is fantastic, and then you can stream everything and no need to worry about downloads. Before I started using it all my music was listened to from lossless CD rips through jRiver mc17 on WASAPI event style, there isn't much difference (if any).

If you look here:
...apparently they aim for an "average of" 256kbps.
I hope that helped
Main system: Mac Mini 2011 > HRT II+ DAC • Cyrus 2 & PSX • Cyrus tuner • MS 10i speakers [on loan]
Also cluttering-up the place: Thorens TD160 (no cart) • Marantz CD 63 mkII KI & PM66 KI • Technics SL-P777 • Nakamichi DR-1
Thanks a lot for bothering and sorry if I seem really stupid but have seen comments of people ripping a CD to a hard drive. How do you do this to the highest quality? Have downloaded a few songs from ares but there are very few flac files and the majority are 192/320. Thanks.
