Comments on: Neil Young: Piracy is good, MP3s are not http://www.electricpig.co.uk/2012/02/01/neil-young-piracy-is-good-mp3s-are-not/ The only tech you need Tue, 27 Nov 2012 11:01:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.2.1 By: Guesticles http://www.electricpig.co.uk/2012/02/01/neil-young-piracy-is-good-mp3s-are-not/comment-page-1/#comment-202681 Guesticles Wed, 01 Feb 2012 17:21:00 +0000 http://www.electricpig.co.uk/?p=217725#comment-202681 Mp3's are fine on lo-fi devices but they sound pretty poor on a good system. The question to ask is do enough people care and do they still have the right equipment to take advantage of lossless quality? Mr Young talks sense , and I for one would love Napster and its ilk to offer proper high resolution audio for those with enough bandwidth to stream , in fact Napster should be able to stream in 2-3 different kbps to cover everyone's connection and requirements.
