Just discovered this new site, HDtracks.com.

Needless to say, wav and mp3 are seriously degraded formats compared to these high bit rate samples from the original masters.

Several sites now offer 320kbit streaming premium service....only audiophiles with very high-end equipment can detect a difference, and that's highly debatable

between 320 and other high end formats, right?

Anyone in a quiet room or on headphones can tell wav from mp3 from HDaudio from analog.

mp3 is really only useful when there is a lot of ambient noise, because it is punchy...
