In our booming industry today, we to know about this article: Easy PC Repair for Beginners where there are many music terminology and gadgets arise. You might heard the word “MP3” or mp3 player around your friends and family.

Now, you will add your information about MP3 thing.

What is the meaning of MP3?

MP3 means motion picture expert group – layer 3 (or mpeg3).

This file type is ordinarily termed as MP3.

This was invented in 1991 and later about nine months from its launching, it was proclaimed as the best performing format for audio in the Internet.

You have observed I guess that mp3 sounds are so much excellent and downloading this file type is much faster than any audio file type around.

Many products on the web today are mostly in mp3 file type format.

You might have heard some online audio file type from Real Audio and Shock Wave from Macromedia.

They are also very popular until mp3 format arrived.

Compressing files to fit to any downloading or uploading through the web is a trend in today’s technology.

One example of this is the mp3 format type of audio.

This is also a compressed audio streaming file in digital form.

It has been said that it took them experts 15 years for this successful acoustic research.

Imagine, ordinary audio file is compressed about 12 times smaller without depreciating its audio quality.

The Fraunhoffer Institute

In Fraunhoffer Institute (pioneer company) many engineers studied this mp3 technology and they have declared that mp3 system can explore the very properties of one’s ear and maintaining that original sound quality.

Some may have said that audio CD is clearer but I still believe that mp3 has reached out with best invention in audio industry for real with that advantage of having the enormous compression rate.

With that high compression rate, saving your mp3 files for music to your memory devices is more convenient because one common audio CD song is around 40 Megabytes compared with mp3 format which has only about 3 or 5 Megabytes.

A lot of people today are very thankful for this wonderful invention. Even though many hate this invention, let’s not get confused that today, revolution of technology is getting so fast.

Because of this mp3 format invention, many recording companies are losing their money.

Distribution of mp3 files is just very simple but there are laws about this. It is just easy to make mp3 files out of your audio CD but it is against the law (International Law) to give mp3 files/copied files to someone.

      I think it is a mini speaker with a super power sound, brand name Music Angel. But I am not sure, it is very popular today. It is a china made but there are genuine though based on the crispiness of the sound quality. I have two of that brand. :)
