Default Music files

I am interested in purchasing a cowon d2 because I heard it has great sound quality. However I was wondering about my music collection. As a person that has only very recently become interested in sound quality I have a few questions to the experts.
1. The best type of music files for sound quality (also runs on mp3 players).
2. Is there a website that specialises in selling high quality sound files, I ask this because apart from 500 (which are in flac files) of my 2033 songs they are all in mp3 (Ranging from 320 to most of them at 128kb or a bit lower). I would just rip them from CD's but I generally only have a few CD's (raised on purchasing mp3's online, least I never touched itunes )
Thanks for any help.

FLAC can be considered the highest quality that the D2 can support. It's uncompressed, straight from CD files that lose nothing from encoding. MP3 on the other hand does compress sound files obviously, but a good encoder (like LAME) can compress all the way down to 192k VBR and have most people not be able to tell the difference between that and FLAC. 128k sounds horrible to me, and it's very obvious how compressed it is at that bitrate. Your minimum from now on should be 192k.

I'm not sure I know of any stores that sell high quality digital copies. It'll be best to try to find the discs cheap on half.com or something similar and rip them yourself.
