    I've bought about 400 songs off the site. Quality is good, you can pay 1$ per file for .wavs or you can just get 320 kpbs .mp3 files

    excellent.

    320kbps or WAV

    He's saying WAV is an additional fee. I think it's 1.99 more. I don't remember.

    All of the songs are either $1.50/$2.00/$2.50. If you buy entire releases you might pay less then that, but that's the standard price depending on how new and popular the songs are. If I didn't dj, I wouldn't waste as much money on that site as I have. :) It gets expensive fast.

    What I started doing for myself was sitting on all the releases I wanted for about a week or two. This allows me to go back and listen to the songs I've already put in my cart and compare them to other ones that I've been listening to. Basically, I weed out all the songs that just sound good after one listen by hearing them a couple times on different days then deciding. This allows me to end up spending less and getting higher quality songs.

    I also search for them all on youtube so I can hear the whole thing before I buy :cool:I used to spend way to much and have a bunch of songs I'd never listen to, so this is a good way I was able to limit myself.

    You've got it right man. That's what I've been doing, going back every few days to listen to see if they're really good or not. But about the youtube idea, I never thought about that. Thanks a lot.:bigthumb:

    Another reality apparently
    the quality is definitely worth it when your spinning though. Nothing like going through your playlist and accidentally dropping in something at 192 :hsd:

    I use it too, never had any problems and i have been to a bunch of parties where they handed out free download cards :)
