Hi there!

My impression is that most of the soundfiles available on www are of a
very bad quality, probably to save time and space. This result in an
almost unlistenable mess.

My opinion is that if you go below 8-bit, 22kHz, it's just not worth
it. If you want to put your music out for public listening you'd probably
want people to hear what it really sounds like and not some compressed blur.

I hope to hear some thoughts about if anyone really is interested in
loading down sounds over www, and if so, how important is the sound quality.
Tips on useful datacompression for soundfiles would also be appreciated.

Thank you !
