About Us

Arkiv is a music retailer with a focus on the physical market for products in the CD, DVD/Blue-ray, SACD and Vinyl formats. Our multiple-warehouse distribution system allows us to offer a vast selection of titles.


The design for Arkiv emphasizes the ability to quickly and intuitively find recordings. The peculiarities of classical music and jazz do not always lend themselves to standard search tools used on the Web. Spelling inconsistencies, differing search syntax designs, and databases not specifically oriented to the parameters of jazz can often lead to very confusing results. At Arkiv, we take a lot of the guesswork out of finding music by letting you click down a logical and well-categorized path to the works and recordings that you want.


The Arkiv staff is made up of experts in internet commerce, direct-to-consumer operations and logistics, customer service -- and most importantly, music!  This unique combination enables Arkiv to provide exceptional service to music lovers in ways not available anywhere else!
