MusicGiants: a lossless music store

MusicgiantsWe can debate iTunes vs. Zune Marketplace (vs. Yahoo! Music, Rhapsody, Napster, etc…) until the Beatles finally appear in one of them; in the meantime, if you’re a true audiophile, consider stopping by MusicGiants. MusicGiants provides a music download store filled with lossless recordings. Instead of tunes getting compressed down to 128 kbps or less, the MusicGiants tunes play at up to 1100 kbps and should sound identical to CDs due to the lossless approach. You’ll pay a bit more for the music, $1.29 a track, but if you rate quality over price, MusicGiants might be the store for you. The library looks smaller than most, but they do have agreements with EMI, Sony, Universal and Warner Music group. If your portable audio device supports WMP9, you can carry your tunes with you; just watch your conversion quality settings.
