Winamp, pioneering media player, to shut down

Winamp, one of the pioneers in online digital music, will officially be discontinued on December 20. AOL, which manages the 15-year-old music player and media file manager, made the announcement Wednesday. The shutdown of Winamp includes its website and associated web services. It will also be unavailable for download after that, but you can install it into your PC (as well as Winamp for Android if you like). While there are many alternatives to satisfy your online music fix from iTunes to Pandora, from Spotify to, many online music fans--especially those who have used Winamp back in the 1990s--felt a bit nostaligic for something that is part of the evolution of digital music. "Winamp was a trailblazer in the digital music revolution and iTunes wouldn't exist without the groundbreaking work they did," Michael Robertson, founder of, said in an interview with Mashable. "The guys behind Winamp were pioneers that deserve a place in the music hall of fame." And if you're wondering what's with the software's association with llama jokes, it has to do with the brand's demo mp3 file released in 1998, which includes the statement: "Winamp, it really whips the llama's ass."

Pioneer Elite X-Z9 Compact Stereo System

It is a rarity that we find a product that combines related concepts in a single package, and the Pioneer Elite X-Z9 Compact Stereo System is a perfect example.  This sound system consists of two speakers and a compact control unit with a lively black gloss finish that contains a 40Wpc class-D switching amplifier, an AM/ FM tuner, SACD/ CD player, and more inputs than your usual audio head.  These inputs include a USB port, a connector for an iPod control cable, a DIN jack to connect a Sirius satellite radio receiver, a mini-USB port for an XM tuner, and even a LAN port that allows the X-Z9 to be fed by a computer or other network source.  The X-Z9 can play a variety of media files like mp3, LPCM, Window's wma, Apple's aac, and FLAC.Meanwhile, the speakers also come with a flawless black gloss to complement the control unit.  Each comes in a 5.1-inch plastic-cone woofer and a concentric 5.1-inch plastic-cone midrange with 1.2-inch metal-dome tweeter.  At first, their sound could not cope with the quality of the main unit.  The treble was not as smooth, but it kept improving with use.In contrast, the switching circuit has a fair amount of power packed into a small package.  The unit does not get warm to the touch that easily.  The Sound function found on the remote button comes in three different settings:  Vivid, Exciting, and Relaxing.  These settings, however, are not available while playing SACD because popping one of these higher-fidelity CDs can create a much cleaner sound without the help of an outside adjustment.  SACD also seemed to have a lower noise floor, reproducing sounds that come from a truly "black" environment-where any distraction is absent.Overall, the Pioneer Elite X-Z9 is a very versatile audio system that lets you use just about any type of media and connect it to the system.  You can play it with your iPod, with your computer (whether through USB or analog input), satellite radio, and even a turntable.  It may not become a sound system of choice by professionals, but they are as good as they come.Image Source: Pioneer USA Read More
