If I'm not mistaken, the format of the music is basically already a PDF file. The music is offered by "FreeHand" which has offered a dedicated sheet-music reader for several years.

I have often relished using the DX for reading music. However, the timeout is an issue. To make it really useful, Kindle will have to come up with a way to disable the timeout because it depending on what you are playing/practicing, it would be a pain to have the thing keep switching over to the screen saver.



Specifications:

MusicPad Pro Plus -- $899.
