Linn Records to broaden distribution of 24-bit Studio Master content

Linn Records is, for the first time, to start selling its 24-bit Studio Master content on other digital music stores from July 2014. And from late August Linn will stop selling music from other record labels, concentrating purely on its own artists.

Linn managing director Gilad Tiefenbrun says: "2014 is the year Studio Masters goes mainstream, giving music lovers access to a vast array of 24-bit content from their favourite artists."
