I often use Pandora to discover new music. When I find something that scratches the itch I will inevitably go on Bandcamp or buy a CD if I cannot find it there. I'm mostly looking to have a copy of a high quality DRM free digital file for my personal collection, usually flac.
I think this is a missed opportunity for Pandora to sell copies of the albums in its collection directly. This would help to support the platform beyond subscriptions and hopefully help the artists on top of that. I've spent way more at Bandcamp than I have Pandora ($0).
Id be more inclined to subscribe to Pandora if there were a tier for lossless audio but that's a request others have already made ad nauseam.
