Marshall Blostein, owner of Audio Fidelity, does not want classic rock to disappear. He formed the company in the 70′s in order to preserve America’s best music for all of time. The company reissues classic albums. And now they reissue them in nothing less than 24 karat gold.
This isn’t just for looks. Not only are these CDs actually playable, but they’re supposed to ensure higher listening quality. Something about the gold coating versus traditional digital materials makes them sound better. They’re also meant to last longer than traditional CDs.
Audio Fidelity is putting out all the hitmakers, including Bad Company, The Rolling Stones, and Carly Simon. Each CD will be individually numbered and sold in high end retail outlets.
