ArkivMusic specializes in the efficient delivery of the broadest selection of classical music titles in the U.S., direct to the consumer. There are currently over 120,000
CD, DVD, SACD, Blu-ray Disc, and 320-kbps MP3 titles in the ArkivMusic database, shipping from over 20 distribution centers around the country. This distribution network allows ArkivMusic to have more titles in stock
every day than any other online retailer, assuring the most expeditious delivery and largest selection of classical music.
In addition, ArkivMusic has more than 10,000 titles in its ArkivCD
reissue program. These are recordings that have previously been out of print or otherwise unavailable.
The design for ArkivMusic emphasizes the ability to quickly and intuitively find classical music recordings. The peculiarities of classical music 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 classical music can often lead to very confusing results. At ArkivMusic, 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 ArkivMusic staff is made up of experts in Internet technology, direct-to-consumer operations and logistics, customer service -- and most importantly, classical music!
This unique combination enables ArkivMusic to provide exceptional service to classical music lovers in ways not available anywhere else.
ArkivMusic also publishes LISTEN: Life with Classical Music
, America's quarterly lifestyle magazine about classical music.
