    in the bedroom, it doesnt matter, but on a big rig, the distortion will be noticible on the top and bottom end, even 320k has some distortion

    Got the same speakers mate.. If you push them to their limit you can deffinately tell between a 256 and a 320kbps tune and its not pleasent. But if you're keeping if fairly quiet then its all good. Only about 20p difference anyway, no? Thats for the places that even sell 256kbps music

    If you are buying tunes to DJ with, then iTunes is not for you...
