While I lived in the Philippines, I found it difficult to purchase CDs of good quality. The CDs sold there were usually pirated music that came from China. They were cheap, but of poor quality to say the least.
So, there was always Limewire. Before the government shut Limewire down, you could pick and choose just about any song that was ever recorded and download it as MP3. Worked great. You could burn these MP3 songs to CD, and get more than 100 separate songs on each CD. Really worked great for listening in the car.
Well, now I am living here in the US and I would like these same songs, but in FLAC format to play on my Network Reicever on my 2-channel audio system. I want better sound quality than MP3.
Most people I know buy used CDs cheap on Ebay and then just convert them to FLAC to play on there home audio system.
The problem with this is that I don't want to hear a whole album. I may only want 1 song from that album, so I really don't want to buy hundreds of album type CDs.
Is there any internet company that you can pay for each song in FLAC format, or something of just as high of audio quality?
I have maybe 300 60s and 70s oldies that are MP3. I would like to download all 300 of these various rock oldies from the internet (paying for each song of course), so I can throw away those poor quality MP3 CDs.
How much would it cost per song? I really don't want the price to be too expensive since i need at least 300 songs. And the company selling these downloadable songs would need to have a really big data base, so I could find all of them. Back to Limewire .. you could find just about any song there.
Any suggestions besides buying used CDs on Ebay?
