[Maybe I'm just an audio snob, but the vast majority of MP3s available today sound like garbage. These lossy encoding schemes need to be shot in the head as quickly as possible.]
1. convert your own MP3. All of my MP3s are all converted at 320 kbps (yes, all of 1,000+ albums). Why people BUY MP3 at any rate lower than 256 kbps is beyond me.
2. if your argument is that MP3 is "low brow", then SD DVD, VCD, DivX, XviD and even regular CDDA should not be included either. HD support (both audio and video) only, ie HD DVD, SACD and DVD-A only.
