Before considering purchasing a new device with high resolution audio playback, it’s worth noting high quality content is still limited. Over the last year various music stores have begun slowly adapting to the imminent death of the MP3.
Rdio are next on the bandwagon with their latest update, converting their entire catalog of over 30 million songs to high quality AAC audio. Free users have the highest option of 192 kbps. Rdio Unlimited customers are graced with 320 kbps audio. It’s still a fair way off the 16-bit FLAC 1411 kbps offering that Deezer recently announced, but it’s a step in the right direction and as a free update, you can hardly complain.
