I used to buy from iTunes, but 128 kbits/s are not worth it, so if what I'm looking for isn't on eMule, Demonoid, OiNK, Mininova or ThePirateBay I just order it from Amazon.co.uk

Wow, is that there standard bitrate?

I think they now have a higher bitrate option on some downloads.

Anyone know what that higher bitrate is?

256 kbits/s only for EMI productions, still not enough though.

Especially considering that many of those EMI's can be had for less money in CD format, like in the Gemini series.  :-\

the minimum for me has to be 192, but most of my music are in 320, because i converted them from ape/flac files.

40 gigs on my main desktop
20 gigs on my laptop

none of the music in my collection (quality wise) is lower than 320 kbps.

And how much of that was downloaded legally?

Why don't you just used demonoid to trade music instead of rapidshare?

I have no desire to trade music anymore, because it has been proven to be "harmful" to GMG. BTW, i don't use Demonoid anymore, because file-sharing is slow and inadequate.

I uploaded this in the Now Listening thread, but it got buried under the flood of posts there, so I'm uploading it here. This is the first section of Langgaard's Lenau Moods song cycle.

Can someone briefly explain what "downloading illegal music" means? I was under the impression that CD's I buy in stores or online (or basically anything "in print") are not legally available for free download, but the rest is up for grabs.

i would like a clear statement as well, but, mind you, this is an international site, and international law differs on copyright infringement.

In short, if it's still in print and still in copyright, then it's probably illegal to 'trade' it in any way which means royalties don't reach the artist/publisher/fat-cat record execs, etc ...
