Have you heard the recent good news about digital music? Suremusic sales are declining．Record companies are accusing（归咎）kids and grandparents of downloading music．But impressive reform is also under wayfrom more portable（轻便的）digital music players and software for collection and listening to music to improve music quality to easy-to-use new on line services．You'll find more choices than ever in players．The Creative Labs Nomad MuVoV100 is smallbut thanks to the flash memoryit can hold many hours of music．
The larger Apple iPodstill only about the size of a deck of cards（一副纸牌）can store 160GBof music－about 10 000 songs．And thinks to hard drives that are more compact（紧凑的） the midsize models can store 16GB of music－a couple hundred songs．
The new online services are even more impressiveand the best is yet to come．RealOne Rhapsody 2.1 clearly combines a monthly streaming service with permanent downloads－splendidif you're willing to pay a monthly fee．If notApple has led the way with its Apple iTunes Music Storethe first service to offer songs for individual salewith no monthly fee．Other servicessuch as BuyMusic．Comhave followed in its footsteps．I'm also impressed by the song downloads and the music-playing software offered by MusicMatch．And I recently saw a preview（预告）of the upcoming Napster 2.0which will offer a monthly streaming service as well as song downloads．MeanwhileEmusic continues to offer the best selection of independent music．
These services are very effective choices for people who want to download music legally．And that's a very good thing indeed．
