From Blue Coast Records - one of the most critically acclaimed acoustic record companies of the last 5 years.  Used by manufacturers and industry professionals to test their equipment, Blue Coast Records became one of the first to offer native DSD masters distributed to the public as DSD audio.   

We are delighted to report that our first few weeks since launch has driven a huge amount of traffic. To our surprise, most of the visitors are coming from Japan followed by the USA, Canada, Germany and the UK. The main source of the drive from Japan has been from a blog that is new to us called Music To Go. We would like to thank Yoshihiro Sasaki for writing about us.
