    Am i right in thinking all online MP3's are ripped lower than 320kbp/s? its annoying because you should get top quality if you pay for it, atleast amazon are going to compete with play but i am yet to try online sales the good old album from family every year from the store is good enough for me .

    so why are amazon 1 step behind? cutting down on bandwidth and so they can provide that slightkly cheaper price? Should have 3 prices or something, 1 for high/medium/low bitrates because it would reduce bandwidth and so the pricing could be good.

    I sincerely doubt that Amazon are worried about bandwidth - they are supposed to be adding a CDN service to their web services toolset at the end of the year as they have servers all over the world.

    I agree its better to have multiple encoding options that create different pricing levels - although i will always go for the highest bitrate available.
