    Default MP3.. do you buy them or...

    I buy I guess 95% of my mp3s at different shops (because of availability or price)

    what do you guys do?

    do you buy them or download them elsewhere like via usenet, soulseek etc?

    I buy from juno/beatport, i rip from cd's and i download some from blogs.
    But i stick to 320kbs from blogs. ok sometimes 256, but getting them from other places you can't really count on the quality. Sometimes they say 320 but they've been ripped from a cd that was burnt from an original file of 192...

    I noticed that too..
    If I keep a 192 it must be a very rare record otherwise I just throw it in the bin.

    I buy from Beatport or Spotify (7digital). Try to stick to 320k if possible. If the tunes are restricted I use TPB or other services...

    how good have we got it now.£2 at most for a track that you can own instantly.10 years ago i would pay at least £7 per record and wait 5 days for it.whats the reason for the 5% you don't buy then.i'm not judging just curious as to why you started this thread(although i'm glad u did as thats a monster list provided by alien2kmajor props)

    Buy 95% of them (the others are given to me :P )

    The only time I'll torrent them, is if I picked them up legitimately from somewhere like emusic (which uses fairly crap encoding - fine for an iPod, not fine for a decent system) and I like it enough to play it out, I'll acquire a higher bitrate version - I figure I own a 'license' for the tune, the artist has been paid, and I've got a better quality version.

    I actually have spun emusic tracks on some awesome systems and they sound mint. Might need to be a little louder, but I never lose anything. They are usually encoded around 200kb/s VBR. It's not as good as 320, but not total shit, at least for me.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.
