That was quite some time ago. After the prices shot up soon thereafter Aomp3 got shut down. I realize now what an amazing asset to the music community was. I now realize the importance of a good mp3 which is becoming increasingly more difficult to find. Aomp3 let you CHOOSE how you wanted your music encoded, be it LAME or otherwise. All of my things were 320 LAME. That seems to be the exception not the rule which is terrible. In short, my question is, is there another website that allows you to choose how to encode your music files when you download them or is there a place that is semi cheap where I can download 320's? Price conveince, excellent quality and customer satisfaction (not to mention an astounding catalogue) existed once with Aomp3. It has to happen again. The question is, where is it? Any suggestions. Thank you very much. All the best.
Hi Fuze, welcome back;
The home page (Allofmp3 Community Forums) has a section with all the different music sites (AllofMP3 Alternatives). There you can go through the different music sites that are represented here to see their catalogues and choose which works best for you, combined with the prices and bitrates.
Millisong offers nothing but 320 kbps and albums range roughly from $1.50 - $3.00 depending on the size of the album. (Songs are about 14 cents to 30 cents.) An astounding catalogue is subjective so it's up to you to decide what site best suits your needs. Many members here belong to two, three or four sites to broaden their music need requirements. Also, MP3Sales has excellent customer service, as well as MP3Skyline as their reps frequent the forum here regularly.
Somewhere on here is a review of all the sites but I can't find it; maybe someone will put up the thread. You have to do some homework to find out what's right for you -- no one can just jump on here and tell you what is the best and what is the worst. There's no one size fits all.
Personally, I've found that by being a regular on here and seeing what is going on is very beneficial.
Sorry I don't have "the answer" for you but the information is here and for you to look through.
