eMusic: Good Music. High Quality. DRM-Free.
POSTED ON 9/05/2005 | PERMALINK |0 Comments | BOOKMARK
"eMusic stands alone as the only digital music service entirely focused on serving the needs of independent music fans and independent labels. Delivering more than one million downloads each month, eMusic is among the top digital music services, offering a diverse catalog of 600,000 tracks from established and emerging artists in every genre from the world's top independent labels. Founded in 1998, eMusic was the first service to sell songs and albums in the popular MP3 format and the first company to launch a digital music subscription service."
eMusic respects its customers. Rather than treating them like theves ala iTunes, Napster, etc., eMusic gives you an unrestricted MP3 that is playable on any computer, operating sytem, portable device, dvd player, car stereo, etc., etc. There are no restrictions whatsoever. And being a high bit-rate VBR MP3, the sound quality is greater than that of other online stores.

eMusic stocks artists like:
They offer 3 different subscription plans:
  • eMusic Basic: $9.99 per month/40 downloads
  • eMusic Plus: $14.99 per month/65 downloads
  • eMusic Premium: $19.99 per month/90 downloads
First-time users get a free 30-day 50 free mp3 trial. And this is not some AOL-style-sign-up-and-you're-stuck-forever deal. I've tried it myself (more than once, actually). eMusic even goes so far as to have a huge banner at the top of the page showing you how many free mp3s and days you have left before your trial is over. And cancellation is very easy.
also @ wtg:
disclosure: this is not a paid advertisement for emusic, but i do make a few $$ if you sign up.
