High quality digitally composed music? sounds like an oxymoron.

Not happening with the big players spending so much capital and creating jobs.

True. However, most soap opera fans don't care about the HQ.

There are stores for DJ's that sell lossless files, if your wallet can handle it. Juno Download and Beatport allow that, but I am not sure if you guys are interested in Electronica/House/Dance/EDM music. If you like that kind of music, then it is worth taking a look.

I tend to stay away from buying iTunes albums - mainly because they get somewhat restrictive on what you can do with them. I'm guessing that there is no going back now with digital downlpads though. It's just going to get more intense and FLAC files will become the norm instead of the lossy mp3.
