I’m sitting here listening to a CD. I know that may not be surprising for many of us. However, it’s quite surprising to me. Back in 2005 I discovered iTunes and MP3 files. Though I thought the sound wasn’t quite as “full” or rich as I was accustomed to hearing, I didn’t realize until very recently that 128 kbps isn’t anywhere near the audio quality of a compact disc--and forget vinyl. Sadly, nothing seems to match the warmth of a vinyl album. So, I’m in a spot. I can’t find any store online that sells lossless Pop, Dance and Country music. Classic Rock seems to be about it. I’m therefore buying CDs again and ripping them as lossless files. Can anyone help with a suggestion as to where I might find Top 40 lossless music online? Side note: I was shocked recently when I discovered some of my songs did not upgrade to 256 kbps when I purchased iTunes Plus. Apparently these songs are no longer available from iTunes and I’m stuck with DRM and 128 Kbps unless I can find the music elsewhere. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks!
