http://www.linnrecords.co.uk has lots of HD downloads. Unlike much of the HDTracks stuff, which are in many cases remasters from old analogue tape, the Linn stuff is all digitally mastered and mostly recently recorded - you can actually buy a copy of the Studio Master.

Good find Rick, can FLAC be converted to run on iTunes without loseing any quality otherwise it would be a waste of time, I would like to try the Eagles Hotel California but it's FLAC.

Hi Andy

Good site :)
I like the idea of being able to buy studio master's.

Yep, you can convert FLAC to Apple Lossless. Easiest way I know is to use dBpoweramp's Music Convertor- you can download a free copy from http://www.dbpoweramp.com/. Their ripper is really good too.

That's interesting, thanks Tom. Somewhat lower down the scale, I've read recently that if you pay for spotify premium there are still lots of tracks that are lower quality than 320kbps. Again, the difficulty is there's no way of knowing which you're listening to :? :(

My Logitech Touch tells me what bit rate spotify is streaming at.

That's handy. Is that on the hardware or the software? I will have to look into whether there is anything similar with Sonos.

It displays the bitrate on the Touch (hardware) and on the Squeezecenter server (software).
