I'm a long time Fool, but this is my first time posting on this board. I'm not a musician, but I do listen to music, and I'm hoping others on this board can offer me some useful advice.I've bought songs and albums from both over the years. My tastes are eclectic, and many of the songs were only available from one or the other, which made the choice easy.Now I'd like to buy Tony Joe White's Willie and Laura Mae Jones, which is available from iTunes for $1.29 and Amazon for 99¢.Link to song on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/willie-and-laura-mae-jones/...Link to song on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001QU0XRI?ie=UTF8&tag=...The 30¢ price difference isn't enough to make a difference one way or the other, but if there's no benefit to buying it from iTunes, I may as well save my money, right?iTunes songs are encoded as 256Kbit AAC. Amazon uses 256Kbit MP3. From a purely technical perspective, I know AAC is better, but my ears can't tell the difference.Opinions?
