Northern, WI 1/28/2013 (indicesmedia) – Want to listen to the golden oldies of your’s? Then visit Amazon.com. (NYSE:AMZN). Here you can buy any CDs of your favorite musicals and go back to the memories of old. If you happen to lose this CD, you can still listen to the music by using the latest Amazon service known as AutoRip. In this service, you can listen to the tracks of the CD you have purchased for free.  The best thing is this service is available to you, as soon as you hit the “Purchase” button.

Amazon offers you the option of going for either playing a track by using the cloud or downloading it to the hard disk. Latest  releases by Adele, Carrie Underwood and  Mumford & Sons are some of those that offer digital access, as also the movie footage of “Les Miserable.”

The main benefit, is that you easily access MP3 versions of songs going back to 1998, the time when Amazon started selling CDs. This was 3 years prior to Apple (AAPL)introduced the first iPod, which dramatically changed the way we hear music, and 5 years prior to its iTunes Music Store.

You can hear your AutoRip songs through Amazon’s Cloud Player software, inbuilt into the firm’s Kindle Fire tablets and comes as a free app with iPods and iPhones and with equipments using Google (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Android software. You can also hear the songs by using the web browser on any Windows computer or Mac, or through Internet-connected Samsung (KRX:005930) TVs, Roku streaming media set top box and Sonos multi-room music system.

To log into AutoRip use your username and password on Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN).  Here you can get access to 148 tracks, some of which are vintage songs. While Amazon expects you to use its software instead of its rivals, you can include them into your current iTunes library. The process is easier on Windows PC than Mac.

But the service has number of loopholes. One, AutoRip service is accessible only to the American clients. Moreover, you can just access just around 50,000 from the large number of albums present in the Amazon’s library, although the company claims it will give access to more songs in future. These would include both old and new songs.

The shares of Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) went up by 3.79% to close at $283.99

The shares of  Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) went down by 0.02% to close at $753.67
