– must say, helluva domain name. Was trying out the newly launched website and its many features. Suddenly the DownloadHelper icon on my browser showed some activity. I was listening to some the music that they have in there.

I let DownloadHelper do what it is the best at and wondered whether this new site will be another blow for the music industry. As the file downloaded revealed, not exactly.

Though you can browse and listen to music from different genres, they are optimised for smooth play on the web and therefore aren’t of a high quality.

The specs read

Bit Rate: 64kbps
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Audio sample rate: 44 kHz

For people who aren’t that choosy about the output quality, it might just become the next big inadvertent music download destination.
