7digital pips Apple to DRM-free EMI tunes

MP3 players

Well, no sooner has Apple announced the forthcoming availability of EMI tracks DRM-free than someone beats them to market – and with better quality.

Yes, 7digital is attempting to steal some of Apple’s thunder with DRM-free tunes at 320k – that’s up on the 256k tracks Apple will be offering from May – and at the same 99p price point. But there is a catch – 7digital is only offering tracks from The Good, The Bad & The Queen. Great if you want to buy that, not so great if you want something else.

Still, the more DRM-free music around, the better.
