How might I distribute approximately 750MB of DRM free audio to paying customers?

I am planning an anthology of short stories to be released as an audiobook. I would like to distribute it independently; particularly because I'd like to price it as 'pay what you want'.
I'd like to give people a choice of MP3 or FLAC, the files would be DRM free and I would like to make the processes of payment and downloading as simple and straightforward as possible.
Is there a solution out there that I could build seamlessly into a basic AJAXified webpage? I would prefer that the files could be downloaded without having to install third party software (something like Dropbox, or a p2p client) .
I imagine the file size would be around 750MB. Is there a service like Soundcloud out there that offers a download on demand service? I would prefer, initially at least, not to have to pay anything upfront; the service provider taking a cut from the sale instead.
