15. Sample CDs Before You Buy

The Web is awash with sound clips presented as samples of CDs. When considering purchasing a CD, you can listen to the samples online, to try before you buy.

If you use any of the major online CD-buying sources (www.cdnow.com, www.cduniverse.com, www.amazon.com) and display a description of a particular CD's contents, you'll often find links on that same page that download or play sound clips from the CD. You'll find similar links on the Web sites of all of the major record companies; in Figure 26.16, I'm playing a RealAudio clip of Ricky Martin's hit "Livin' La Vida Loca," which opened when I clicked a link on the Columbia Records Web site (www.columbiarecords.com).
