Napster is a flat fee per month with unlimited downloads and you can put them on your MP3 player but you don't own the songs so if you membership lapses you loose the songs after a while

I personally like Limewire

Exactly what I do before I make CDs. Anytime I download from limewire I typically only download 128 or 192 bit rate files. 192 is CD quality.

very true, i remember you posted this comment along time ago so i set out to find an example. go download Robert Plants "Walking Toward Paradise" in MP3 than listen to it on the original CD . . . HUGE difference and that was one of the earliest full digital mixes. I do still use Mp3's because of the convenience but there is a difference.

I can hear the difference over 300K. It depends on the system really. If you are driving your boat up the river and want something to listen to then heck record at 64K. XM radio is at I think 44K and Sirrius is at 64k for music if memory serves me correctly. Some say that 128 is the same as CD quality but if you listen on a even midfy system most people can hear the difference. Some times you have to have the nuances pointed out. It also depends on the ability of the device to take the MP3 and convert it out to music. Some do a much better job then others. I love music so I find it hard to listen to the stuff at home but when I am in my truck Sirruis is fine over the rumble of the motor and road noise

Thank you,

I thought that I was the only one that thinks mp3 sounds like chit. I converted some mp3 to Cd and tried it on my home system. Listened for about 5 seconds and threw out the CD.
Straight plug in of my Ipod to my home system or my Bose system in the avalanche sounds like an old transistor radio.
Back to buying CDs and vinyl from the store.
