iTunes which now offers DRM-free :shock: downloads!

I think the quality of iTunes songs is really poor. They also have a really limited selection of tunes. I use Limewire mostly.

I only have iTunes because I have an iPod Nano. I haven't really researched MP3 downloads much. But I did have a bad experience with MusicMatch (which is now part of Yahoo) and their DRM really messed things up for me. So when iTunes decided to launch iTunes Plus with DRM-free downloads, I stepped up my purchases with them. But I'm open to other sources of downloads as long as they also offer DRM-free downloads.

I'm a major music snob so when I say the quality is poor, it's not something you'd notice through headphones or desktop speakers. I also tend to listen to music that is a bit off the beaten path so iTunes isn't the best choice for me.

I do like using iTunes as the player though. I really don't like Windows Media Player.

Almost all of the time I'll use SoulSeek. Never failed for me.

This is of course when I download music for a cracked/scratched/missing disc I already own .. of course ;)

I just downloaded a Radiohead album from Amazon. Nice, easy and good quality.

i use a private IRC server that has well over 300.000 different mp3s.. possibly more now.

irc.mp3depot.org:+7100

you need OpenSSL installed

i think its mirc.co.uk/ssl

i go to this russian website, www.gomusic.ru

they have a good archive of music and per track is only about .15c US.
The only bad thing about them is recently they upped the limit of your wallet
balance minimum you can add to $30... before it was only minimum $10. It's
still worth a try though if your in a hurry to dl alot of music.
