I like the Spotify service, but a couple of tracks in my playlist sounded like bad MP3 rips. I started a premium trial with the hope the tracks in question would sound a lot better. They sound exactly the same... bad. Here's the tracks of which I speak... they sound "warbly" like a 128 kbps mp3 rip:
This next one's not as bad, but the same as the free service. Definitely not a 320 kbps mp3 rip... at least not with a decent encoder.
Thoughts anyone? I'm using the the web version (play.spotify.com) on windows 7, Steinberg MR816x audio interface, Genelec 8020 monitors. I know all my gear is working correctly.
