I haven't seen this mentioned here before.


"With traditional MP3, a typical Near CD Quality audio file has been
 encoded with a data rate of 128 kbits/s. While this is ok for people
 with big hard disks and fast Internet connections, this data speed
 has clearly been a bottleneck for people using modems or storing their
 music into 32 or 64 MB portable player FLASH cards. PlusV is a brand
 new audio compression enhancement technology that allows audio files 
 to be compressed in as little as 64 or even 48 kbits/s.

 PlusV is not a compression scheme of its own, it is an extension that 
 can be applied to existing audio formats. When combined with the MP3 
 technology, MP3+V files are fully compatible with existing MP3 files
 and decoders. To get full audio quality out of PlusV files, you just 
 need a PlusV capable decoder, like a PlusV capable WinAmp plugin."
