3. Playing audio files

After downloading files,  import or open them in your preferred media player whether it's Windows Media Player, iTunes, Songbird,  Media Monkey or another.

MP3s play on all media player software but some players may need to have their import preferences adjusted to allow the import of CD quality, or Studio Master lossless audio formats. WMA files play easily on PC software but Mac users need to convert FLAC files to play them in iTunes.
You can play Melba Recordings through your computer speakers or headphones; download files to portable devices including phones; or connect your computer to your stereo equipment.

There are several ways to connect your computer to stereo equipment - via analogue cabling, digital cabling or Wi-Fi.

Alternatively, you can upload your music files to one of a growing range of digital media storage devices that deliver music in many digital audio formats by cable or wi-fi to stereo equipment, around the house and sometimes on different channels at the same time.
It  may be wise to back up your downloads, either on disk or CD but it's not essential because you can download them again, using your Melba Recordings user name at no extra charge.
