The Beatles USB Includes 24bit FLAC and 320kbps Mp3 Versions of the Beatles Remastered Stereo Catalog

By Jackson Weinheimer

Digital Version of The Beatles in Stereo Box Set

The Beatles USB includes all of the same elements that the very popular Beatles in Stereo Box Set contains, the only difference (and it's a big one) is that the USB contains digital versions of the 16 remastered stereo CDs, 1 DVD (which contains 13 mini-documentaries), extended liner notes (for each album), previously unpublished photographs, and original vinyl artwork that comes with the box set.

High Quality 320kpbs MP3s

The mp3 files in this USB memory stick are of the highest quality possible (for mp3s) and in fact, most people cannot tell 320kpbs mp3s from CD quality. For comparison's sake, the mp3s sold on iTunes are only 128kpbs, and those sold on AmazonMP3 are usually 192kbps or 256kbps.

Audiophile Quality 24bit FLAC

These 44kHz/24bit FLAC files are of superior audio quality in comparison to CDs (which are 44kHz/16bit.) All of The Beatles music on this memory stick is available as both mp3s and FLAC, it's up to the listener to decide which version they want to listen to.

DRM Free

If you've bought music on iTunes you may be familiar with "DRM" which stands for Digital Rights Management and it can be, quite frankly, a pain in the butt. The files on this USB are DRM free.

Limited Edition: 30,000

This is a limited edition of only 30,000 so there's a good chance that they will sell out rather quickly just as the first pressings of the (stereo and mono) box sets did.

The Beatles USB is the 3rd "flavor" of Remastered Beatles to be released.
