Tower Records launches music service with 192kbps audio

Since the time the leading independent music and entertainment retailer in the US Tower Recorders started off about 45 years, they aimed to offer the widest catalogue of music to choose from in virtually every popular physical audio medium that was available. In fact, they were even one of the first retailers to offer music online via its website back in 1995 as audio samples in the Real Audio Codec. They also ran a 99c per tune download service using the Liquid Audio DRM codec, long before iTunes and the other competitors out today.

Now they aim to compete with other music download services by partnering with Puretracks to unveil a store with songs encoded at 192kbps, a fair improvement in sound quality over the 128kbps bitrate that is used by most other music download services. The store features a large catalogue of music covering a wide range of genres and offers 30 second samples of each song for previewing. Like iTunes, tracks can be purchased for 99˘ each or US$9.99 an album. Music is encoded in the WMA DRM codec and can be written to CD or be transferred to any "PlaysForSure" certified equipment players,
