Chris23, too bad they didn't have this before you bought 100 Ishq CDs!   ;)

I can see this appealing to ambient newbies.  Purchase the entire DiN catalog for half off is a great deal actually.  If you like/don't mind downloads.  If you've got a bunch of DiN CDs already, chances are you've bought what you liked and passed on the unappealing releases, so you don't want stuff you'd never listen to.

I think he said that 3 years ago, but if it's true then I'm a happy camper!   ;D
I'd rather listen to Steve talk about his music than read descriptions, self penned or not.  Having had some in depth conversations with him back in the mid 90s, I was always impressed with his ability to describe the inspirations and  feelings about the music, in a very intelligent, visceral, insightful and almost poetic way.  His passion is really inspiring to hear.  Maybe the website CD descriptions can get a little samey, but as pointed out, it's a difficult to describe genre of music.  and I don't think there's any importance necessarily to sell or promote the music.  His fans are fans and they're gonna buy it regardless of a written blurb. 
I agree with Julio.Receiving the same offers for the last week.Guess it is like a promotion sale.

On the other topic,depending on what currency you are paying and shipping,I have paid for a download far more than what a physical CD would cost.In 2015,some download sites are still charging a premium for FLAC VS MP3.It is similar to what I receive on my shipping invoices from Fed Ex,fuel surcharge of $,like in 2004.What? When fuel is the lowest it has been in years,still a surcharge.It cost less now to store FLAC files than it did a year ago,same analogy with fuel.

^^^ That looks pretty slick!

I bought a new place, and was having trouble with my Airplay dropping out; turns out it was conflicting with my other router.  So, I got one of these:

The sound is awesome, and it's on its own frequency, so networks are irrelevant.  The transmitter dongle acts as a sound card; I control itunes from my phone or ipad, just like with Airplay (but without drop-outs), and send the signal to a receiver dongle hooked to audio ins on my amp.  It even lets you transmit to multiple receivers, so you can stream music all over the house without the annoying lag of Bluetooth.  Highly recommend, especially for folks like me who can't solder like  ;-)

Mr Brennan is still working on a new project. There's no release date set yet but, its looking like first half of 2016 if all goes well....

his way of talking about the music himself reflects pretty much the way the album descriptions are written

I got all the parts for a touchscreen version of the player.  The wiring on the back (particularly the USB stuff) is a bit messy but I'll clean that up.

A child could easily build one of these.  When I was young, I build a ham radio from a kit by Heathkit.

Here's a few of the specs:

1.  Built with Raspberry Pi B+: a real computer available for less than 40 USD
2.  Bit-perfect reproduction of digital files which is fed to the digital analog converter (DAC) of your choice and price range
3.  Can handle high-res files
4.  Controlled by phone app, PC, tablet, or directly via the touchscreen
5.  Can easily be transformed into a portable device if you have one of those phone powerbank devices with a microUSB connector
6.  Handles all type of music files except possibly lossless Windows file
7.  Accesses and streams thousands of internet radio stations free of charge
8.  Can play Spotify, Tidal, and Pandora if you have a pay subscription
9.  A very robust forum where you can get and share info
10. This or another Raspberry Pi can be your server with the Squeezebox server software installed connected to a USB hard drive or thumb drive with your music on it.  If you use the same Raspberry Pi as a server and player, its a touchscreen boombox sort of thingie

Steve has worked in a particular way for a very long time, underpoinning all the music he creates.

Whatever we individually think about the metaphysics/spirituality/mumbo-jumbo, it is clearly important to him and he is not shy / ashamed of being open and honest about it.
