If I can get a flac song for about the same as iTunes one and keep it in a hard drive my receiver can play... It is a win win win :D

I buy my hi- Res downloads from HDtracks.com.
In FLAC format. (Free Lossless Audio Codec) if a particular song/album is lot available from hdtracks, I'll buy the cd from Amazon and rip it to FLAC.  you will get a higher sample rate /bit depth with most of the hi-Res downloads from HD tracks.

HD tracks mostly sell complete albums for Hi-Res downloads, though sometimes you will see individual tracks for sale.
