Society of Sound Music – Bowers & Wilkins

London, England—Bowers & Wilkins is famous for making digital music sound better than you could ever imagine thanks to its multi-award winning Zeppelin iPod speaker. Now with Society of Sound Music, it’s offering an alternative to poor quality MP3s with wonderful sounding lossless downloads. Members can download a selection of music specially recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in a choice of three exceptional high-quality formats.

Society of Sound Music (formally B&W Music Club) is celebrating its ?rst birthday, and has dramatically changed the benefits offered to members. It still gives members an exclusive, stunningly recorded album every month to download, but members can now also access a selection of previously featured albums for the ?rst time, which brings the price of membership down to below $3.15 an album.

Users have the choice of three high-quality lossless music downloads, all of which package the tracks for convenient download, but unlike MP3 they are indistinguishable from the original recordings when they are played back. Apple Lossless is perfect for copying to your iPod or burning to CD, as is 16-bit FLAC for non iTunes users.

But the quality bar has been pushed even higher with the introduction of 24-bit FLAC. These incredibly high-quality music ?les get listeners closer than ever to the sound the artist heard in the studio, and can either stream it via a computer, or burn onto a DVD to play on a home system.

Since its launch in May 2008, Society of Sound Music has brought members a wide variety of different musical styles, all from exceptional artists: Gwyneth Herbert; Dub Colossus; former Suede frontman Brett Anderson; guitarist Tom Kerstens; Mercury Award nominees Portico Quartet and an exclusive lossless EP download from Eurythmics star Dave Stewart. Future releases include the new album from the hotly –tipped Dengue Fever, a band that blends Cambodian pop music with West Coast psychedelic rock.

Society of Sound Music is brought to you by Bowers & Wilkins, the company behind the multi-award winning Zeppelin iPod speaker system and the manufacturers of the famous 800 Series loudspeakers, which are used in some of the world’s best recording studios including Abbey Road Studios. It is a major part of the brand’s campaign for real sound.

Bowers & Wilkins offers free trial memberships on its website, where new members can download a ‘best of’ Society of Sound Music sampler, as well as have access to a single of the month recording for three months. Full membership allows users to download the full album every month, as well as access the back catalogue and a selection of bonus albums. Costs are: USD $33.95 for six months or USD $59.95 for a year, which works out less than USD $3.15 an album.
