Depends...
You have to order them online. Will need a credit card mostly or PayPal if accepted. Bulk orders will get some discount at least on shipping. Other best option is to pick them up when you or someone you know is travelling abroad.

This is one option. I've used the keyword "audiophile" which seems to have given 70 results, try out other keywords. Seems to be 1000-1500 for a disc, which is steep, but it's an option if cost is no object.

no idea, i keep recommending it to people, hoping they'll try it and tell me :)

But I do plan to buy a CD (the HDCD sampler) from the site, once i get hold of my CD player.

There are several queries so here is my brief response:

I have bought them mostly in Singapore, Hong Kong and Seoul in the past 4-5 years. I cant verify or confirm whether all of these are original pressings even though I bought them at full retail price in these countries. I bought them in good faith and have been quite impressed by their recordings. No regrets at all. Selling them due to lack of space as I keep buying CDs.

They are all in good working condition. I have used them in my Marantz and Denon CD players.

Delhi-based buyers preferred in order to avoid complications in terms of shipping and conditions involved. Come to my house and test them before buying. I can also ship them outside Delhi through DTDC courier at actual costs and at buyers risk.

I can't provide the list of songs in each CD or labels/year as it is a time consuming process and not worth given my offer price.

For the full list of CDs and price, PM me.
