4/15/2007 iTrax.com Announces The Web's First REAL HD Surround Music Download site.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

HD AUDIO DOWNLOADS IN 5.1 SURROUND SOUND"iTRAX.COM IS COMING!

(Los Angeles) May 24, 2007 - Mark Waldrep, Ph.D., the man behind the only all-HD Audio label AIX Records has announced the launch of iTrax.com, the world's first digital music download service to offer REAL HD Audio in surround sound. iTrax.com will launch in June and include tracks from AIX Records and several other audiophile catalogs.

According to Waldrep, "iTrax.com is a sort of an iTunes for people that care about sound quality and surround music. This new website allows dedicated audiophiles and surround music fans to access music that has actually been recorded, mixed and mastered in high-definition - most so-called HD Audio downloads are really standard definition tracks delivered through the web. iTrax.com brings better than CD quality digital downloads for the first time" and in 5.1 surround."

The new site will house almost 1000 tracks at the launch in June, but each track will be available in a wide variety of encoding formats AND three different mixes. Consumers will be able to choose between MP3, Dolby Digital, DTS, WMA Pro, WMA Lossless and even uncompressed PCM at 96 kHz/24-bits as well as select what sort of mix they want. iTrax will offer 2.0 stereo, 5.1 "stage" and 5.1 "audience" perspective mixes, making it the first and only download service to provide users real choice.

The arrival of media servers and high-quality remote digital audio players makes the timing for better fidelity files appropriate. The experience of listening to an HD Audio "stage" surround track makes standard stereo CDs pale in comparison.

A wide variety of musical genres and artists will be available on iTrax.com including Willie Nelson, Albert Lee, Wallace Roney, John Gorka, Cheryl Bentyne, Hanna-McEuen, Paul Williams and Laurence Juber, whose award-winning Guitar Noir won the Demmy Award for "Best High Resolution, 5.1 Track" from the CEA in 2005.

iTrax.com will be the only website in the world to offer REAL HD Surround Music Downloads. Links to AIX Records will provide users to purchase physical discs in DVD-Audio/Video format.
