Be aware that allofmp3.com is currently under investigation by the
police of Moscow because allofmp3.com seems to refuse to pay licence
fees (see http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/56678 (only in
German, sorry!)). So buying music at allofmp3.com may be illegal.

Furthermore, allofmp3.com has relatively few songs in uncompressed
wave format. Actually, most of their songs are stored in 384 kBit/s
MP3 format and then converted to the format the "customer" demands.
