What about http://www.qobuz.com ?

I usually just buy the CD on Amazon and burn it to my computer to download to my DAP.

same here.

you can buy most CDs under 15 bucks so there are no reasons to buy MP3s.

If reasons I won't bore you with I need to be able to download single cuts (songs) and while amazon would be perfect I believe they are all MP3.

I never had problems buying CD quality albums and tracks from them. Hi-res files are sometimes not available for my country.

I tried them and they can't currently sell in the US.

Huh? "Sounds better" is a subjective judgement. Science doesn't prove subjective judgements. Science can be used to determine technical differences, or whether there are actual audible differences. So I don't know what you mean about "the science of a we page that shows why a FLAC rip of a vinyl LP sounds better than the CD of same." What science, exactly?

Those who didn't grow up in a different era (unlike myself) perhaps don't realize how revolutionary it is to be able to buy single tracks without buying the entire album/cd. And now to be able to buy them in lossless formats is quite incredible.

I grew up in that era, and as I recall we had something very similar.  They were called 45's! ;)

Hehehe. Yeah, but they were only two cuts off the album that maybe had a dozen or so cuts, and the B sides often sucked.

Yeah but the record labels still decided WHICH songs were released as singles and which weren't. LOL
