They’re slowly moving toward the day when we buy quality remastered lossLESS non-DRM crippled songs for 25 cents a piece. When that happens music sales will explode.

I’d pay 2 bucks a track, if only it was lossless FLAC…

It’s a step in the right direction. We can’t have everything our way, but doing away with DRM is a nice start. 256k is great for the average user. We’ll have lossless DRMless music one day, so let’s just appreciate this for now.

First we had crappy 128k DRM infected music. Now we have DRM-free 256k music. We might get lossless music in the near future.

I step in the rite direction but USA only mentality again…
