TECHNOLOGY: CD-R, CD-RW Playback
More and more people these days are using their computers or digital recorders to make their own CD-R and CD-RW discs. Yamaha CD players and changers are capable of playing these discs.
The ability to navigate and organize large music collections is largely dependent on accurately identifying and categorizing songs, albums and artists that it contains. Gracenote MusicID™ is the essential ingredient for digital media recognition of CDs, digital music files and streaming audio. With the most comprehensive database of music recordings in the world, the Gracenote Media Database contains more than 55 million tracks and 4 million CDs.
Short for MPEG-1 layer 3 audio, MP3 is a compression process used to shrink audio files by filtering out all noise that is not detectable to the human ear. MP3 is considered near CD quality, but the file itself occupies approximately one tenth to one twelfth the space of the original CD format, making it the perfect medium for today’s smaller, memory based portable media players.
Yamaha Network Receivers get you connected to the vast music content available anywhere on your LAN and on the web. Connecting the Network Receiver to a broadband Internet connection provides the ability to listen to any of the thousands of stations available on Internet radio (MP3 and/or WMA depending on your receiver). You can also listen to music content (MP3, WMA and WAV) that is being shared on your home network from a PC using Windows Media Player 11 or higher.
