The audio quality of the track uploaded on to Soundcloud is really poor, when compared to the track on my computer.

That's good to hear. It really has been doing my head in. I spend hours, if not days, mixing and eqing everything and it sounds great on Cubase, I then download it to Soundcloud - or Reverbnation - and it sounds awful. No dynamic range, no high or low frequencies.
That's because they encode your music to 128 kbps mp3 format to ensure playback is smooth when streaming. But truth is this was useful 10 years ago. Now mostly everyone can stream high quality content with high-speed internet. It's sad that they don't update this! I totally feel your pain.
