MP3 is a new audio format that lets you store 10 CD's worth of music on a single disc(1).
Using MP3 encoder software on your PC, you can convert CD tracks into MP3 files about 1/10
the size of the original CD audio data*. This means you can fit music from 10 CDs into a single
CD-R/RW disc for nonstop entertainment from about 100 tracks(2). And with Kenwood's Car
CD-Receiver, you can play your original CDs when you're driving(3).
Another advantage of MP3 is that you can download MP3 format music files from a growing number
of websites on the Internet for even more audio enjoyment.
