QRS Music Introduces Digital Music Downloads
8/25/2009

QRS announces introduction of digital music downloads of their entire Pianomation Standard Library which can then be downloaded to computers, iPods or other MP3 players to create playlists, burn CDs and stream music to Pianomation player systems.

Aug 18, 2009 – QRS Music Technologies, Inc., a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of pianos, piano-based audio and multimedia products, music and piano accessories, today announced the introduction of digital music downloads of their entire Pianomation Standard Library which can then be downloaded to computers, iPods or other MP3 players to create playlists, burn CDs and stream music to Pianomation player systems. The downloadable music is playable on QRS’s most popular and popularly priced systems, the Petine, the Ancho and the Petine Lite.

“Introducing the digital music option just reinforces the Petine and the Ancho as the best value and most feature-rich systems in the category,” said Tom Dolan, president and CEO. “To get this same option in a competitive system, you’ll pay significantly more. Many customers today prefer the convenience of downloading music, which is why we chose to make it affordable and accessible.” All digital music purchases are tied to an individual Petine or Ancho Pianomation controller, making it possible for QRS to offer customers greater flexibility while complying with digital rights management laws.

Customers can purchase individual CDs or they can purchase the entire Pianomation standard library through NetPiano. When a customer purchases a lifetime subscription to NetPiano for $2999 they realize an immediate savings of over $6000. Their savings actually grows over time as new titles are added to the standard library; lifetime subscribers get new standard library releases for free. The standard Pianomation library contains all solo and concert CDs. The NetPiano lifetime subscription also offers dealers a way to add to their bottom line by selling Pianomation music without carrying music inventory. For more information, visit www.qrsmusic.com.
