    They've always operated at a loss. No sane company will buyout Soundcloud.

    They're one of the few music sites that seems to have a nicely oriented music service. I wonder why they can't turn a profit.

    Because they've been free to use for so long, and the pay service they offer is trash compared to other streaming sites.

    I wish there was a volume control on their embedded clips.

    What are some other sites out there like them?

    Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, etc. But none of them handle independent music like Soundcloud does. The draw to Soundcloud is that anyone can upload and listen for free, but most people aren't interested in paying to access anything available on Soundcloud since the primary service has been free forever.
