So far only Warner classical and Sony. 4 to 6 months to integrate there catalogs. Will have to see what other labels join up
Naxos, PENTATONE, Harmonia Mundi, LSO Live, Channel Classics, BIS, Chandos Records, BR Klassik....
Claim to have a number of other lables but the above is a good start especially if they have all of the minor labels that Naxos handles distribution for.
Yes. And the album tracks might be in the correct sequence on this site.
" So far only Warner classical and Sony."
They have more labels than that as they launched with 100,000 songs. Though the use of the term " songs" in itself is not encouraging for a classical only medium. I hope that is down to Billboard and not Primephonic. The article says only that they signed Warner and Sony last week, it doesn't exclude anyone else.
Anyway I have tried to sign up to the free period offer. However their webpage does not appear to load into MS Edge ( the only browser on my dedicated music computer). So not a positive first impression.
. . . although plain old CD resolution seems like such a come down these days! -)
Chris, I will take a look also and see how it sounds. Plain old cd resolution can be really good with a ladder dac
I got onto the site. Lots of labels but in a quick check many labels have very few albums. For example went to Reference Recordings and the have a total of 5 albums. Will continue to explore. Sound is ok but hard to tell because the trial only plays short samples
" hard to tell because the trial only plays short samples"
Thanks for that Alan. Puts me completely off trying it especaily given the continuing intermittent difficulty of getting their site to load into MS Edge.
Another phrase I like is "middle class tragedy" :)
BTW - did you mean to respond to my post a bit further down, rather than here? ;-)
Just another first world problem.
