About Murfie

Murfie brings physical music into the 21st century.

The Murfie universe is built by collectors, for collectors. Our goal is to become the best-ever platform to buy, sell, and listen to your music. It all starts with our Collection to Cloud service. Send your CDs, vinyl and cassettes to our headquarters in Madison, WI, and we’ll use our HiFi equipment and software expertise to rip it all to uncompressed, lossless formats. When we’re finished, the collection that was taking up half your bookshelf will fit in your pocket and be ready to follow you wherever you go.

Stream your music on the go with our mobile apps for iOS or Android. Listen at home through our web player or with any Sonos, Bluesound, Autonomic, Samsung or VOCO device. No matter where you are, the precious collection you’ve curated through the years is just a tap away.

At Murfie, we believe that going digital doesn’t have to mean sacrificing audio quality. We store CD rips in full-resolution .wav and our analog transfers stay almost perfectly true to form in 192kHz, 24-bit Hi-res. We don’t cut corners on delivery, either. Our basic package includes 320kbps mp3 streams, and a Murfie HiFi subscription unlocks lossless streaming on compatible devices. We also offer free, unlimited downloads in FLAC, ALAC, mp3 and AAC.

Murfie also makes it easier than ever to add to or sell off your collection. Our marketplace of almost half a million titles is stocked and shopped by members just like you setting their own prices, offering up trades, and finding great deals. Every CD and vinyl record we have for sale is stored at Murfie HQ, and any album you buy from another member is instantly added to your online collection. There’s a ton of other awesome features that make Murfie the best place to buy music.

For starters, you can:

  • Request physical delivery of any album you buy
  • Unpurchase any album you buy within 24 hours for full credit back to your account
  • Sell your CDs and vinyl records in a personal shop
  • Trade albums with other members
  • Add albums to your Wishlist, choose a price, and select Autobuy to have us automatically buy it for you when it becomes available

One of the best parts about shopping on Murfie is that you actually own everything you buy. Forget about cyclical content availability. If you have the release, we can host it and you can stream it. You can also feel good about building equity instead of just renting.

The Murfie universe currently has over 12,000 members and an inventory of 800,000 discs. Every CD and vinyl record in our warehouse belongs to a Murfie member, which makes our operation extra special. When you buy another member’s album or cruise through their shop, there’s a person behind it and a physical disc to back the digital files, we think that’s pretty cool.

Our Staff

Our Madison, Wisconsin based team works out of a warehouse space in the neighboring town of Middleton. We’re a dedicated staff of 14 people: a dynamic crew of music lovers, caffeine addicts, technophiles, audiophiles, geeks, de-clutterers, and music buffs who make kits, answer emails, program to improve our site, catalog discs, recycle, move boxes, and whatever else it takes to make the Murfie hive hum. We’re just a bunch of music lovers trying to offer a better alternative to renting compressed streams that someone else collected.
