Music Downloads Can’t Replace CD Quality

Well yeah, i think so in term of sound quality. Eventhough, downloading your favorite music of course make your life simpler. But after all, I still buying CD instead of downloading MP3 (even if it’s free!). Especially if i really like the album.

Ok, my PDA phone helps me to keep my listening experience simple. I convert the audio into MP3, in my standard quality. I usually make it at least 256 kpbs so i don’t lose especially the mid-high frequency.
Here’s a list of the major download stores and the download quality that they offer from best to worst:

  • Amazon 256 kbps
  • iTunes 256 kbps
  • Napster 192 kbps
  • Rhapsody 192 kbps
  • Zune 192 kbps
  • eMusic 153 kbps
  • WalMart 128 kbps

See? In the end, yes. If you want good quality of digital music, buy a god damn CD and make your own digital version.
