Select 192k quality and it should open in iTunes.
If RP sounds 'thin' then I would say you need to check over all your settings. (Windows, Mac, iTunes, Quicktime, iTunes Equalizer etc..)
Here are some guides....
For iTunes/Quicktime on Macs
For iTunes/Quicktime on Windows
Audio settings for Windows XP
Audio settings for Vista
And don't forget to disable the 'equalizer' in your iTunes.

Nice one Chebby. I have followed the advice given in the 'For Windows XP' and Spotify sounds better! But I also tried itunes and it has not cured the crackling problem.
EDIT - I should say; the changes I made were to set the volume in Sounds and Devices at maximum (turning down the volume on my amp to compensate) and changing the sample rate from 44.1 to 96 khz in Quicktime. As a result the bass (which Joel criticised for being awol ) has beefed up and overall clarity has improved slightly.
Internet - laptop - DAC - amp - lots of headphones.

I have just added settings for iTunes/Quicktime on windows.
Refresh screen and check those out too.
idc, have you tried downloading and reinstalling iTunes completely across the top of the one you have now?
You won't lose anything (settings, playlists, purchased, account details etc.will all get picked up fine.)
Do your regular system backup first though, just for peace of mind.
