RE: Where do you buy CDs?

I don't buy many physical CDs these days, but when I do I tend to find the bands website and get it from there if possible (I listen to much independant and not so mainstream stuff). I have also used Amazon market for both used and new.

For downloads I use Boomkat mostly, who offer FLAC versions for a small amount extra over the 320 Kbps MP3 version.

I've also used Bleep/Warprecords and Linn.

RE: Where do you buy CDs?

Recently, I have purchased my CD's from Amazon - nearly always "Used as New" - some for as little as 1p (yes! 1p) plus £1.20 for Jiffy bag and postage..

As long a they rip ok - which they all have - happy days!!

They're like donuts but flat. And in place of jam there's music. You feed them to your CD player.

 

It's been a long day.

I've had a couple of people ask me, quite genuinely, where they can buy CDs? Post-HMV etc. If you still buy CDs, where do you buy them? Hard to look past Amazon, Play, supermarkets etc.

 

We're quite well off for used CD stores in Edinburgh; I use Hogs Head, Vinyl Villains and Oxfam's dedicated (and excellent) music shop down in Stockbridge.  Shelter, just along the road also has a good CD selection.  One or two others too.  Fopp has survived - thankfully - but HMV shutting all five of its Edinburgh stores is a joke.

I have kept all of my CD's - may have to rip them all again to ALAC one day - but as such a daunting task I have been putting it off.....

Amazon (with 'free' Prime delivery). Or, if feeling extravagant, might have a sniff around CD Japan or MoFi for SACD treats :grin:   

EDIT: Ooo, "Blu-spec CD2" - wussat?? Google!

The problem with trying to use humour in a post without smileys is you never wuite know if it hit the mark.

Did you fail to make a backup slice of toast before someone took a bite out of the original this morning?

No longer than any other.

It's just as well I muse myself innit.
