Smaller files/less bandwidth and still good listenable quality. patent free. Note that the recordings are also cached, so a smaller size makes a different and they are streamed from my home adsl 2+ connection (2.5mbit upstream). We use ogg around exotica for most stuff, so why change it. Also most devices I have play ogg fine. I can't think of one that doesn't.
about quality btw, most tunes sound great though this. the xm quality minus encoding loss will be the same as using xmplay on windows for example.
