best experiences with an online mp3 store
I am running up to my yearly DJ gig and am getting tired of trying to find decent mixed CD-based music and then rip it onto my laptop - always 10-15 songs I don't want and only a few that I do. I avoided online mp3 services before because - well they didn't really used to be mp3 - they were all DRM crap.
Apparently there is some selection out there now non-DRM mp3s recorded at 256kbps or better. ITunes has some, for example but I don't know how much of their library is in this format.
Where do you buy mp3s? Are they 256Kbps or better? How much are they? What online store do you recommend?
Not wearing pants.
Buy mp3's? As in....paying money for them?
Yarrrrrr.....ye be in the wild, terrrrible seas of the pirates, mate. Ain't no such thang as handing over golllllld for the music.
I don't think anyone has ever bought MP3's ever.
If they have they should be shot, you can download 256kbps or better MP3's for free, as in PIRATED, STOLEN GOODS OVER INTRAWEB SEAS.

Unfortunately in Canada we are severely limited in legal mp3 download options. The best source for DRM free mp3 purchases is amazon.com. The only problem is the service isn't available outside of the USA. Here is a page I came across while researching the same issue (it looks like itunes is your best bet though):
