Just as ReplayTV and Tivo are challenging conventional VCRs, the new MP3 Jukebox from ReQuest Multimedia may give home CD changers a run for their money.

ReQuest Multimedia Inc. recently announced that it is now shipping the AudioReQuest Digital Music System TM. This is the first MP3-based home stereo component to reach the consumer market.

This unit will allow listeners to play audio CDs once, and AudioReQuest remembers the music, so the user will never have to insert that CD again. It is able to store, organize and play 300 hours of CD-quality digital music. To ease archival, the music is automatically organized by song title, artist, and album using CDDB and MP3 ID3 tags.

With its built-in CD player, analog stereo line-in inputs, and network connections, AudioReQuest can transfer music from CDs, MP3 CDs, and PCs, and can record from audiocassettes, LPs, and radio. This unit can be a stand alone home stereo component or can be connected online or to a PC for enhanced Internet-enabled features.

AudioReQuest includes Ethernet, USB, and Parallel ports for connecting to PC, MP3 portable players, and the Internet. The user can navigate and play their music collection from a remote control, viewed on the built-in LCD and through the enhanced television interface. AudioReQuest is software upgradeable over the Internet or via CDs sent to registered customers, enabling the latest features and digital music formats. In a future software update, AudioReQuest will connect to the Internet allowing customers to download and purchase new music from the comfort of their living room.
