If you like your music MP3, and we hope you value a decent level of performance, then you may be interested in the latest news from 7Digital. The site has become the first to offer files from the big four record labels in the MP3 format, and will be doing so at a bitrate of 320kbps.

Sony BMG, Universal Music, Warner Music and EMI Records all offer music through 7Digital, and all four million of the tracks on there are entirely DRM-free, meaning you can use them how you please.

Also, should you have downloaded WMA files from 7Digital in the past you can now have them upgraded to 320kbps MP3 files for no extra cost.

And there's more: to celebrate this news 7Digital is offering all users two entirely free albums – pre-chosen by 7Digital – and is selling a selection of other content at just £2 an album.

The fact that theyre not FLAC is my only real gripe. This is a definite step in the right direction, with the big labels co-operating.

i didnt look for too long, but the selection of music seems good.

hmmm. Can't think of anything too bad to say.

Damn. I need to lie down.
