When I said the price is not the issue, I meant it was not the issue for me ...
I did not base my decision to use allofmp3.com on the price of their offerings. I would have used them in preference to any other site, even if their prices were the same as other sites, because of the choice of format and bitrate, and lack of DRM.
The price is not the issue
I used allofmp3.com ... and I guess I will now use mp3sparks.com
Not because of price .... I have no objection to paying a fair price for any product.
I like the site because it is user friendly, easy to navigate, the music was available in a wide range of formats, and at a bitrate of my choosing. Oh, and no DRM :)
Those are things the consumer wants.
I DO NOT WANT WMA, I DO NOT WANT 128KBPS, I DO NOT WANT DRM!!!!!!!!
I'm fed up with the whole situation. I currently buy no music whatsoever. I did use allofmp3.com for a while, but gave up when that started looking dicey. It was nothing to do with cost - it was the freedom of choice of format and bitrate, lack of DRM, and their friendly, easy-to-navigate site. I haven't found anything else comparable.
The last CD I bought cam from the USA ... it was manufactured in the UK ... and yet it was still cheaper to buy from the USA than the UK, including carriage (twice over the Atlantic). Ridiculous ... Does anyone in the industry have any clue what they are doing?
On the DRM thing, I agree - it's ludicrous to alienate the honest, paying customers, ie. the only ones who get hit by DRM. It's the same with DVDs / VCDs - only the honest customer has to sit through all the piracy crap with no option to skip.
