The iTrax Story
iTrax is the world's only online retailer of high definition, surround music and high definition video music, offering discriminating music consumers the opportunity to acquire new music tracks that were actually recorded, mixed and mastered using high definition digital production equipment. While other sites may contains millions of tracks, the quality of the listening experience is most often harsh, dull, flat and over-processed'not the kind of fidelity that great music deserves. iTrax gives quality-conscious music fans the option to download real high definition tracks in stereo and/or two different 5.1 mixing perspectives'the only site on the web that provides users a choice!

iTrax was founded in the spring of 2007 by Mark Waldrep, Ph.D., an award-winning audio engineer and music producer, as an alternative to iTunes and other web sites that provide lots of tracks but at low fidelity. Even sites that feature so-called 'HD Downloads' are only providing the quality of the original older master, which is often an analog or standard definition digital recording. iTrax's definition of high definition audio doesn't include CDs, analog tape or vinyl.

Experience iTrax HD Surround Music
iTrax is unique among online music distributors in many ways. Perhaps the most important innovation that iTrax offers is the ability to download music in 5.1 surround sound and video in HD! If you think surround sound works for movies, just wait until you've experienced 5.1 surround music'you'll wonder why this important innovation didn't happen before. You will be immersed in the music. You'll be on stage with the band or sitting right along side your favorite singer/songwriter. This is the future of music delivery and iTrax makes it possible for the first time.

Formats
Wide bandwidth and a large amount of storage are both required to download large media files. The growth of home media servers and increases in connection speeds have made downloading HD Audio and Video a reality for many customers. But rather than dictate a low fidelity file format, iTrax lets you choose the quality of your downloads and the mixing perspective. You can download jazz, rock, folk, country, classical and more in MP3, Dolby Digital, DTS, WMA Professional, WMA Lossless and even 96 kHz/24-bit PCM. We also offer all of those formats in Stereo and Surround Sound. The surround mixes are offered in the Audience and Stage perspectives. Lastly, we don't use Digital Rights Management (DRM) to limit the playability of our tracks.

Selection
Obviously, iTrax cannot compete with eMusic, iTunes, Napster or any of the other mainstream online music download businesses. But we can offer something that none of them can'high definition audio and video downloads with surround sound. If you've invested in a high quality media server, home theatre or automotive system and want to experience some of the best, award-winning audio and video on the planet, then iTrax is the perfect solution.

Affiliated Labels and Partners
iTrax is dedicated to furthering the awareness of real HD surround music and video and is constantly looking for affiliates and partners in that effort. If you are interested in being part of this effort, please contact us.
