Second-place iTunes rival EMusic this morning unveiled its Connoisseur plans on its unprotected MP3 music store. The tiers are developed for the most dedicated music listeners who were previously limited by the service's 99-song monthly cap and who wanted a larger number of guaranteed song downloads than the 75 provided by the main $20 per month subscription, the company says.
Three levels are available beginning today: the $25 per month Basic Connoisseur edges out earlier deals with 100 songs, while the Plus Connoisseur ($50) and Premium Connoisseur ($75) plans offer 200 and an unheralded 300 songs per month respectively. As always, the songs are compatible with iPods and any other device that supports the MP3 standard. [via LAPTOP]
