Post anyone use Itunes Match?
i just learned about it. was wondering if anyone have hands on experience with it.

what really intrigues me is the fact that you can renew your entire old mp3 library, that were low quality bit rate, with high quality AAC256 from the apple store library. i am just wondering how well does this work in practice. i mean theoretically, you should be able to renew them all, but are people running into matching issues where lots of songs are not being matched? i really rather not spend $25 and find out that half of my collection run into matching errors.

i am just wondering what everyone's experiences with itunes match is before i take the plunge.

I use Spotify, I haven't worried about having a music library on hand in a couple years now.

spotify has been pissing me off. now i get ads every two songs. so i am trying to buy some of the jazz songs i have from the spotify play list on Itunes, and came across this Itunes Match feature.

i tried Spotify premium, but canceled it after a month. i would keep it had they offer FLAC for premium members. but thus far, the premium doesn't provide enough value for me. so i'd rather buy the songs i like in high quality.

Their 320 kbps high-quality streaming option is good enough for me. I bought Spotify right out of the gate so I've never seen an add. Considering how much music I listen to and how much it would cost me to buy all the songs I listen to it's well worth the $10 a month to me.

Why Pandora (which doesn't let you play whatever you want) over Spotify?

Exactly.
It plays what it "thinks" you want to hear.
