    No man. Get the wav then convert that to a 320 or just get them to send you a zip folder

    If you buy it at 192 and convert it to 320, it will still be 192 quality, so buy it at 320

    Someone once gave the example of your 320 being a lobster dinner. You can eat it and it turns into poo (the 192) but if you eat the poo, it doesnt turn back into the lobster

    My advice to you is to buy it from somewhere else. Play.com do dirt cheap 320s, but if they don't have the tune you want, go for junodownload.com, as they have much cheaper 320s the Dnb Arena

    :D

    I had this in my sig for a while. I posted it on NWDNB to try explaining in layman terms how mp3 encoding works.

    If you want top quality audio get a WAV. It costs an extra £1 from DNBA to get a WAV, I think they are £2.29. 320kbps mp3s will be fine to play out in clubs, these are £1.29 per mp3 from DNBA.

    I'll do a little Side by Side Comparison for Bad Red by Culture Shock
    192 320 Wav
    Play.com N/A 63p N/A
    DnbA 95p £1.20 £1.75
    Juno 95p £1.15 £1.75
    Beatport + Trackitdown are so expensive, not even worth listing

    Flacs are cheaper then wavs, just as good, bit smaller, no loss in quality, & can be easily converted into wavs.

    It's called the z-machine, creates a star in a lab, only lasts a few seconds, that's a picture of it.

    Nah mate, Amazon don't do 320s, they only do 256 by my experience (even if they do do 320s its such a lucky bag I'd stay away, all about Play.com for mp3s mate)

    Amazon lie, they say 320 but really they're 256. Managed to get my money back on tracks as I said it was misleading. Lies.
