    Where do you get your obscure FLAC metal / hip hop?

    If I had found a music site with a great DB, I would consider renting a torrent box off a great connect, then downloading straight from it at a disgusting rate overnight and using the box to maintain ratio.

    As best as I can tell, newsgroups have pretty crappy FLAC selection.

    It is real important to me that I get my music from here on out in a lossless format, as I have significantly upgraded my home audio system (which will also be my home gym stereo).

    Can you really tell the difference between a 160bit rate mp3 and a FLAC file playing when you pushing out some squats?

    You obviously don't know how shit works around here.
    Go listen to your FLAC files you care so much about.

    Thanks for the offer fatcow. PM sent.

    knucks - what do you care for waffles for? free trackers like torrentz should work fine for your 192br mp3s.

    FYI - I haven't logged in to stmusic in a year atleast (probably closer to 2), but stmusic recently opened invites. The signup script is currently broken, but I would be checking intermittently if you are interested in a decent tracker that you don't have to wait for.

    I'm really interested in high quality underground hip hop, and metalcore in FLAC...

    My new audio system is straight ridiculous... muahahahhahaha

    I can't tell the difference. I did a v0 rip of a FLAC album and kept doing blind listening tests and shit and they sounded the exact same on my Sennheiser HD600's w/amp. Better than most stuff but I'm not running some gangster high end audiophile shit.

    just don't download shit mp3's. FLAC is too damn big to justify the marginal increase in quality unless I had some retarded home audio setup that cost more than most niggas houses.

    You obviously don't have a straight ridiculous sound system.

    what.cd > waffles.fm

    If you don't have either just get a demonoid invite, its sucks compared to the two up top and the faggots in the main forum practically give them away.

    As of FLAC, I'm a DJ and play out to crowds of 400+ on ten thousand dollar sound setups with a high quality monitor in my face. You honestly can't tell the difference between 320 and FLAC. Anything less than 320 its easy to tell the difference but I'll even play out 240 if the track is super rare.

    Using LAME and getting a quality vbr rip sounds just as good/better than 320 cbr and takes up a lot less space.
