What is the quality of the files?

Our files are encoded as 245k average VBR mp3 (LAME --preset extreme) or FLAC (-8). The mp3 encode is virtually indistinguishable from CD-quality audio.

Where available, FLAC encodes are superior. The audio is compressed without any loss in quality, similar to how zip works but with better compression for audio files. This makes FLAC's the highest possible quality for digital downloads. The file sizes are however on average approximately four times the size of the mp3 versions.
