"...Plextor and Liquid Audio have teamed up to provide CD-R/RW users an easy way to access secure digital music and burn their own music CDs. Plextor has selected Liquid Player Plus software to custom-brand and bundle with its PlexWriter CD-R/RW drives. Plextor is also utilizing the Liquid Store to facilitate the secure distribution and sale of audio content on the Plextor Web site. This gives Plextor users access to more than 150,000 digital downloads -- the largest selection of secure digital music available today.
Music fans that purchase Plextor CD-R/RW drives can use Liquid Player Plus software to stream, download, purchase and playback secure, CD-quality music files. Users can also rip music from personal audio CDs and export music to their CD-R/RW drive to create custom CDs. Liquid Audio's software uses Gracenote's CDDB music recognition technology to enable fans to retrieve related album/artist information for imported music. Liquid Player Plus software supports leading audio codecs and formats, so users can access the broadest range of music on the Internet from one convenient application.
"A majority of Plextor customers use their CD-R/RW disk drives to create compilation CDs and want a complete solution that includes digital music delivery software. Combining Plextor CD-R/RW drives with Liquid Player Plus software and the Liquid Store not only gives our customers access to their favorite digital music, but also allows them to 'burn discs' at the same time. I believe our association with Liquid Audio provides the perfect solution and will be widely accepted by our current and future customers.'' stated Howard Wing, vice president, Sales and Marketing for Plextor..."
