Dear Apple, Please Don't Make Us Pay More for Better-Sounding Music Downloads

Apparently getting hip to the idea that people who still pay money for music might want it to sound good, Apple is considering offering higher-quality audio files in the iTunes store.

This alone would be great news — we're frustrated that the store only sells CD-quality 16-bit downloads, instead of the better 24-bit files songs are mastered at, and which most computers can play. (Come to think of it, it's really time the company offered an iPod capable of playing — and holding — high quality audio as well.)

But there's a catch: some speculate that Apple might try to charge more for higher quality downloads. Which, to our broke-but-quality-loving ears, sounds like a really, really bad idea.
