Profile:
Also credited as DCC Compact Classics, Inc. or sometimes just DCC.
Please note: This page is for the company. The label is DCC Compact Classics.
Founded in 1986 by former ABC/Dunhill Records executive Marshall Blonstein as Dunhill Compact Classics to reissue recordings on audiophile 24k gold-plated CD and vinyl LPs. British American Tobacco sued the company because of the use of the Dunhill name, forcing the company to rename itself DCC Compact Classics. In later years, it shifted its focus to include issuing various artists compilations via Sony Music Special Products. The company closed down in 2001.

Many of its releases were mastered by acclaimed and highly respected mastering engineer Steve Hoffman.

Blonstein soon after DCC's demise founded the audiophile label Audio Fidelity (3).
