Quote from: erato on April 26, 2010, 11:44:34 PMBut not easy to find a distributor that actually sells these discs. I did a search for some of the titles on some of the usual suspects in countries where the discs are distributed according to the website (no UK distribution BTW); but drew a blank. Let's hope their own webshop soon will be up and running.
Quote from: Antoine Marchand on April 27, 2010, 09:35:35 AMWell, I put a big order through the Cantus site itself. I used the email contact: firstname.lastname@example.org. They informed me about the shipping and handling charges from Spain to Chile. And then I paid my order sending the money through PayPal. Nice and easy.
Quote from: DavidW on April 27, 2010, 09:30:43 AMWanted to share the link to Pentatone, a very cool small label that specializes in sacds with some remarkable performances in astounding sound and careful remastering classics done with a love the major labels rarely show.http://www.pentatonemusic.com/index1.htm
Quote from: Bulldog on April 27, 2010, 01:02:28 PMI also love this label and its philosophy.
Quote from: Que on April 26, 2010, 10:17:35 PMAnother Belgian label - HIPPI & Baroque - is Flora, run by violinist François Fernandez, gambist and conductor Philippe Pierlot and cellist and Rainer Zipperling.
Quote from: erato on April 27, 2010, 12:54:51 PMWhat were the prices like?
Quote from: Antoine Marchand on April 28, 2010, 05:11:14 PMSorry, Erato. I didn't see your post before. The prices for the discs are excellent; unfortunately, shipping and handling costs were rather expensive in my case. I paid EUR 36 ( ), but it had a cheaper option for EUR 20, also certified and with tracking (but slower). I prefererred the most expensive option because I bought a lot of discs (considered for a long, long time) and I wanted to be totally sure. Anyway, probably my case will be not a good parameter for you because I'm in Chile and usually my sh. and h. charges are highly expensive. I would recommend you to write directly to Cantus. They are extremely kind people and in my case José Carlos Cabello himself, the founder of the label, replied my questions. They will inform you about prices and other charges.
Quote from: Feanor on April 27, 2010, 05:41:25 PMThree labels not yet mentioned, (I don't think) ... Reference Recordings -- audiophile recordings mostly using HDCD technology; most have superb sound quality. Analekta -- specializing in Canadian conductors and musicians, e.g. Jeanne Lamon & The Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra Atma Classique -- another specializing in Canadian performers, e.g. Yannick Nézet-Séguin & Orchestre Métropolitain du Grand Montréal.
Quote from: George on May 18, 2010, 03:49:21 AMJust came across this interesting website that does 78 transfers:http://www.78experience.com/welcome.php?mod=accueil The 78 rpm experienceThe real sound of the 78 rpm ...No filtering, exact speed, appropriate needle, re-centering for absolute stability. When all the frequencies are preserved, the results bring out incredible musicality and presence, a true feeling of live performance. The instrumental and interpretative genius of the greatest musicians of the past is finally revealed._______________Looks interesting...
Quote from: Franco on May 18, 2010, 05:49:33 AMIt does look interesting but I wish they had audio samples so I could hear the result. However, the Sampler is only $4.99, so there's not a huge initial investment to listen to a nice selection of what they have to offer.
