Im really disappointed with the sound quality that spotify provides on the mobile. I believe it provides 160kbps ogg, comparable to 192kbps MP3, but you can hear the music start to break up and become muffled, particularly on tracks that have a lot going on.  Accoustic or melodic tunes are fine, but once you start to get a bit more involved, you simply lose clarity, and you can hear the audio break up.

 

Are there any plans to improve bitrate?  Afterall, its my bandwidth Im using, and my storage space!  I think anything below at least 256kbps is an insult!  Given that memory for mobiles is fairly cheap these days, <£20 for 32gb, surely we can go 320kbps?
