Wtf. I'm going to have to go with Sigma on this. And, don't be pompous and spout off about anyone who cannot buy a $2 track should stop DJ'ing and go flip hamburgers. Most people don't want to pick up 40 songs off of Beatport and pay $130 for it (including lossless upgrade). I'm not going to have a collection of digital music at 320kbps when for a dollar more I can have a lossless format that doesn't cost Beatport or any other distributor any more money besides hard drive space and bandwidth which I can sure as hell bet does not equate to an extra $1 per track in operating expenses.

mp3 doesn't retain value because they can be copied.
But while in the store they have value and even a lot of people would pay for full collections (even if its illegal)
Well someones an angry beaver today.
My helpful contribution was made somewhere on page 1 before you came in with your chest pounding, pissing contest crap.
Junodownload sells em for cheaper. Some tunes that were $2.49 a pop on Beatport were going for $1.89 on Juno. I will say that lately I've been getting mp3s directly from the label's online store.
Thats just me though....
