  1. Couldn’t agree more. I love Rdio and having access to my collection anywhere but I dearly miss high quality audio. I want lossless files. I want it to sound like vinyl coming through my cell phone. Eventually technology will get there. For now, it presents a major gap in quality.
    Ironically I wrote a blog post on this very thing in 2010. Seems we’ve made little progress since then. For you’re reading pleasure, if you’re interested.
