there is the proof that quality of transcoded songs is totally unacceptable.
Try to play this sample in soundcloud:
It sounds so horrible that i cant even listen it :(
Then download it in WAV and play it again. Do you hear the difference?
Yea, it _s a big difference.
I tried almost everything to make it sound better, but without succes.
It seems that problem is on your side.

Hi there,

Hmm, sorry to hear you're having trouble with the audio quality. Our engineers are looking into ways to improve our transcoder further, however please note that all of our users' uploads are transcoded into 128kbps for streaming purposes, so a loss in quality is expected.

Here's is more on the matter of mixing for that purpose, might be an interesting read!

I'll make sure to pass on your feedback to the relevant product team.
