Acoustic Sounds - no more downloads?


Recommended Posts

Hey - so friend of mine just told me -  no more downloads (buying files) at Acoustic Sounds - went to the site, seems to be no mention of it, but the download store is not there nor I can find a way to access it...

 

[EDIT - mah bad,  it's there ]

ah well - beyond the streaming debate (which I hate and wish it disappeared instead) the bad thing is that many of their SACDs are not being repressed but were available as downloads... it was a good stopgap until they (if ever) became available again...

 

ah well

OMG, this is terrible news, so so sad.  AS was great source, especially for DSD downloads of out of print SACD content. Why, why, why do we audiophiles have to be continually screwed by the compromised mass market, just awful.
