We know music.
With a bachelor's degree in music history and theory, and a lifelong love of Jazz, Classical, Rock/Pop & R&B/Soul, Ari has an encyclopedic knowledge of music. As an obsessive collector, he is sensitive to subtle differences in various CD editions and performances. Your music is in good hands.
More options for the audiophile than any other service.
For the committed audiophile, there is simply no better service than Golden Ear Digital. We are as obsessive about good sound as you are, and we're constantly looking for ways to get the sweetest sound possible. We use state of the art Plextor disc drives, and ripping software that will re-scan a disc up to 20 times to get bit-perfect rips. We also offer a revolutionary SACD ripping service so you can experience your SACDs in native DSD, but you can ditch the spinning discs!
No extra charge for classical music.
Classical music is much harder to catalog correctly than other kinds of music. There's way more essential information including composer, conductor, soloists, orchestra, featured instruments and genre (chamber music, symphony, concerto) that must be entered manually for a satisfactory library. Other services will charge you extra to get your classical collection right. As equal opportunity music listeners, we wouldn't dream of charging a premium to get what you are already paying for in the first place. Read more.
Guaranteed bit-perfect CD rips.
We use dbPoweramp Batch Ripper to ensure that each CD is imported perfectly. If there is any error, we will know about it, and so will you. We even have ways of correcting errors caused by scratches or disc imperfection.
Fast turnaround time.
We turn most libraries around within 2-3 weeks and small projects in a matter of days, however we'll give you a custom quote depending on the size and nature of your library.
Friendly and effective service.
Our number one goal is for you to be 100% satisfied. If you aren't completely thrilled with your digital music library, we aren't happy either. We will provide a customized solution for you and your collection that will exceed your expectations of the joy of a digital music library.
