Any specific reason why you use 320 ???
If you stream at 320 but your tracks only are at 128 then paying for 320 is a waste of money.

Hi DJ Sparks,

The monthly bandwidth allowances are always reset on the 1st of each month, not on your payment date. This has been reset for the month ahead today!

And yes, streaming at 320kbps will use your bandwidth up a lot quicker.

i play at 320k as the sounds is much better and clearer even if the tracks are at 128k it transmits to 320k

No, that's not correct. If a file is already encoded at 128kbps the quality is already lost regardless of if you then broadcast it at 320kbps. The control panel does re-encode the file on the fly into 320kbps with the AutoDJ feature but the original source file was of a lower quality and this won't improve this.

I would suggest that if you wish to stream at a higher quality but keep your bitrate down then you should switch to streaming in AAC instead.

I would also like to mention that if you have some tracks which were 320 and you have reduced them down to 128 (using various software) You will not be able to put them back to 320 and hope the quality will also be resumed because this will not happen.
Once you go down you cannot go up.

Exactly this!
