I found the email address for Jonathan Gruber, the Deutsche Grammophon spokesperson who was interviewed in the Stereophile article (and others) about DG's new web site. He's vice president of new media, classics and jazz at UMG, Deutsche Grammophon's parent company: jonathan.gruber@umusic.com

Rich- I agree. I too wish they would offer a lossless alternative. I would have written a message on the Deutsche Grammophon website, but couldn't find any way to communicate with them.

I agree. As a audio buff and classical music listener, also a pianist, I would not accept ANY degradation of the source - and certainly not at the same inflated price! Basically, degraded source stuff should be free - I might play it though a lower grade system (car audio, bedroom/office system, etc.) but not often and rarely for classical music. I do listen to classical FM radio, though, mostly in the car (but I have CD there, too, of course.) For serious listening I will only use the best CD's and DVD's I can find. BTW, I can play vinyl but only do so for my vintage collectables, not for quality. DG should think again. Cheers, Roger

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
