Having ripped all my CDs a couple of years back I now only listen to computer audio, typically through high quality DACs and either headphones or stereo system. The problem is, the search for good quality downloads yields little that is helpful. For classical music Presto Classical is good, maybe very good, but they only provide FLAC format which must be converted for us Apple users. I asked them a year ago could they add ALAC and they promised to look into it. The model site is Hyperion; great search, information and download options. But only for the material on their group of labels. For popular music it is actually worse. Neither Amazon nor iTunes provide lossless downloads. HDTracks provides good material with a reasonable interface, but I do not always want HD resolution which wont play on my Apple or Sonos devices. HD is great on my full stereo but I am not sure it is much better than Red Book CD quality, which is all I really need. Up until now I have resorted to buying the CDs any way and then ripping them. Prehistoric. Time this sort of thing stopped. When is the world going to catch up -- what do other people do?
