    Music store downloads in mono?

    I just downloaded my first track and I was pleased!
    It was easy to find, pay, and download. It was 20 cents cheaper than AmazonMP3 too.

    I had the same song downloaded from AmazonMP3 and compared them side-by-side.
    The 7digital file had a better bitrate (320KB/sec) than AmazonMP3 (225KB/sec) and I didn't notice any quality in the sound.

    I noticed, however, the AmazonMP3 track was stereo and the 7digital one was mono.

    Mono?
    What?
    Are all the songs like this?
    When helping other users, I will always suggest a GUI solution first.

    Glad to hear your Music Store experience went so well.

    As far as the mono vs. stereo that is dependent on the track. Some older Beatles stuff is mono for example. That is not a 7digital thing. The same track bought on Amazon would probably be the same. Most the tracks I have bought from The Music Store (7digital) are stereo.

    The track I downloaded was released in 2010, so I'm not sure that's correct. The same song in AmazonMP3 was stereo when 7digital was mono.

    Granted, I didn't notice any difference in sound quality and it's not a big deal, but I payed for it. I'd like it to be the best quality.
