Does anyone know what the khz and Bitrate are on streaming audio from places like Yahoo Music or Musicmatch? Radio365 labels the bitrate and type of file but the others just claim CD Quality. If you buy a download do you get a fully lossless file or something else? They seem evasive to questions about this in their help forums.

Bad quality mp3, I think. A streaming file can't be huge since you have to be able to download it at a certain rate per second, and a claim of "CD Quality" usually corresponds to 128kbps, not necessarily with a good mp3 encoder like LAME either.
