iTunes Quality - Page 2

post #16 of 50
I don't like itunes, to slow. I buy ALL my music on CD, the main reason is that i only have a CD player, i will invest in a pure i-20 in the future and an ipod classic. I personaly prefer cd (vinyl more) over any MP3/AAC downloads,i can't really say why, just like it more

Does anyone know if itunes will be offering lossless files some time in the future?

I sense a strong argument for buying Cds whenever possible. Spending bucket-loads of money on gear and then having source quality issues... doesnt make sense to me.

I buy all my music on cd&vinyl it's also more personal then a download.. I guess buying it digitaly would be cheaper, for your setup aswell. What i mean is you can get a great DAC for around ~$300, , a good cd-player wil cost you a lot more. Mine cost €999

My Sony bluray player sounds as good as my old $1000 SACD player. There's no sound quality reason to buy expensive CD players any more.

If the iTunes store went lossless, that would be a massive bandwidth hit for little or no sound quality imprrovement.

My first Mac computer was a Lisa. It cost $5000+ new, but I had to get creative to figure out how it could remain useful. I threw a little rug over it and made it a stair to help my dog jump up on the couch.

Wow a Lisa biggrin.gif that's a piece of history, does it stil work?

The Lisa went to the dump, I'm afraid. My IIci made a better step so it replaced the Lisa.

yes there is a difference

 

 

but youll need a good set up to hear it and of course the mastering has to be done well too.  much modern stuff is mastered so badly youll hear no improvement moving to lossless.

Artifacting is artifacting in a good job of mastering or a bad one. Lousy sounding music isn't necessarily easier to compress.
