Amazon’s new DRM free store promises to offer variable pricing and an ala-carte model which closer matches the success of iTunes, rather than the X downloads per month deal on offer at eMusic.
I love eMusic. I would love it even more if it went a la carte, especially if it could go a la carte and keep the price per track close to where it is now. I realize that without the guaranteed subscription revenue that tracks would be more than the circa $.25 they are now, but the eMusic catalogue sold a la carte at $.60 – .75 per track would be totally rockin’. Maybe this Amazon move will push it that way.
