Do I need to install the Download-Manager to buy music?

Yes. If you choose to buy albums and songs you should install our Download-Manager to transfer your purchased High-Res-Audio music to your computer. You can still choose to download music directly from your download-list in „My Downloads“ without using our Download-Manager as long as you are downloading them one at a time. However, if you have added more than one album or many songs to your download-list, we do recommend to use our Download-Manager to download the list of music files. You can always choose to use your browser for downloads. Read more in our FAQ.

The installation of the Download-Manager is easy and you will be notified throughout your shopping experience that the Download Manager is installed or requires installation through the use of a Java check. http://www.java.com/download/
