I do NOT suggest buying music through iTunes, that's what I was getting at.

But, I don't like using it as a music player either. I don't really care for anything with an i in front of the name when it comes to music playback.. Which is a real shame, because those aforementioned i products have great software for creating music. It's kinda frustrating and everything is a compromise it seems.

iTunes is 256kbps AAC, I've compared against flac and heard no difference. iTunes is also very convenient, so I'm cool with it.

I can understand that. My apologies for misunderstanding that. I don't normally buy from iTunes myself.  I only do when I know I can not obtain the CD, which is usually the case with foreign music. triportsad.gif

Are the 256 AACs even DRMed anymore? I know the old way still works though. Burn it to a CD, re rip in 256 AAC. Done.

Nope.

301 GB

23,187 Files

I'd say 70/30 between FLAC/320

Maybe 25-30 GB of 24/96 vinyl rips

k. Officially nothing wrong with buying from iTunes then.

That's what I thought. 256kbps AAC is very good, and iTunes is very convenient. Most of the music I like isn't available to purchase anywhere locally, so my options are to buy the physical copy (CD) online and wait days, maybe even weeks for it to arrive and then rip it onto my computer in 256kbps AAC anyway, or just buy and download instantly from iTunes. I'm not interested in flac, I've compared flac to 256 AAC and 320 MP3 and could not tell a difference.

I'll still buy CDs just for physical copies, but iTunes is the go to for digital.
