It's all good and well deciding that you want to download some mp3s, but how do you know if what you're getting is good, bad or ugly? How do you know the quality is going to be acceptable?

Well, all the mp3 sites I list on here tell you the quality of every tack on an album, so you can decide for yourself if you're happy with it before you download it.

But how do you know what is good and what is bad quality?

Quality is always displayed as 'Bitrate'.

So what are good and bad bitrates?

A Bitrate of 192 is CD quality. A Bitrate of 320 kbps is the highest quality an mp3 can be, so is obviously the best quality. Anything below 192 kbps is considered to be poor quality. 

So before you download any songs, it's always worth just having a glance at the Bitrate of the track to make sure you're not getting something really bad quality that you can't listen to.

MP3Million and MP3va all offer up to a Bitrate of 320.
