Youtube audio is mediocre and compressed.

Best source is high quality rips from your own CDs, probably not what you want to hear. A purist would tell you to use a lossless method like FLAC or WAV. I use mp3s at 192 or higher bitrate and can very rarely tell the difference from a CD.

look for FLAC files. FLAC is a lossless format. You can find lots of Grateful Dead in FLAC format on torrent sites. (they encourage their concerts to be recorded and given out). I dont condone piracy but im not sure where else to get FLAC or other lossless formats such as WAV.




*edit* edited FLACC to FLAC and someone beat me to this post....!@

I'm not positive, but I think the online stores like I-Tunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, etc all force you to take an mp3---not a lossless format like WAV or FLAC. I'm not sure about that because I don't use the stores.

If you are forced to take mp3s, all you can do is choose a high bit rate if they give you a choice. 128 kb is pretty good, but try to get 192 kb or higher if you can.

My suggestion would be to watch this outfit. They've been producing topflight red label and SACD's along with a rich vinyl history. Now we are about to be wowed finally by digital finally we will hear it's potential with Hi Res Downloads and eventually Hi Res Blu Ray Audio or what ever it's called but we are on the verge of getting back what CD's stole and don't even talk to me about MP3's......there not even music.......not even close!

All in due time, we are on the brink of great sound and one just needs to Google Hi-Res Audio and such to see the growth of this new download. I hope you have many extra TB's of storage and a kicking internet speed because this are HUGE files.
