Save the Music
On the back of the postcard, I found a message from dCS, titled, “Saving the Music for 25 Years.” Audiophiles are familiar with dCSwe know who the company is and what it doesbut this postcard seemed addressed to those who may be new to the hi-fi world:
The most important part of the music playback process is the digital to analog conversion: this is when the digital data on a CD or computer file is converted into an analog signalthe music we hear through speakers.
It is this process that dCS has been refining for 25 years…
At the bottom of the postcard, I found a web address: www.onlythemusic.co.uk. So, when I got back to my hotel room, I followed the link to a page dedicated to bringing magic into our homes through the combination of great music and great technology. The site includes interviews with recording engineers, technical papers, and many outstanding music recommendations and downloads. While the music recommendations are categorized by genre (rock, pop, jazz, classical, and world), I was most interested in the “Legendary Performances” section, where you will find everything from Snoop Doggy Dogg’s seminal album, Doggystyle, to Elgar’s Cello Concertosomething for everyone.
