I see many hifi dealers working their asses off to help offer us advice on systems and prices and tread a fine line between that and selling and think its nice to give them a nod to say thanks as we're better for them on the forums.

I'll kick off with 2 I like reading if anyone can think of others than deserve a big thanks:

Rick at Musicraft - the guy spends so much time on this and many other forums and have to say he knows his stuff - Thanks.

David at Frank Harvey like Rick knows his stuff, although you should save yourself the pain and change your name the amount of times I've seen you being called Frank.

And to add, we don't pay for their experience, so it's greatly appreciated :)

Thanks woollyjoe - yes, I could do with a name change!

its just a shame I've not been able to spend as much time as I'd have liked on the forums over the past 3-4 weeks - there's only three of us on the shop floor, which can make it tricky sometimes, and having the busiest Christmas since 2008 didn't help! I tend to do much of it in my own time, but hey, films and music are MY hobby too!  :)

(look for DavidF on Letterboxd.com to see what I watch and when - I squeeze music in here and there too!)

I'm loving that website. Being big on social trends on Spotify, this looks like a good way to discover more film.

I also wonder how much your business has changed since the online social stuff? I pretty much buy everything I now own through people and dealers on Forums. Its like the new bricks and mortar for me (not meaning just e commerce, but the discovery part).

Yes, I like this place a lot. My Dad lives in Edinburgh and whilst I didn't like brands they stocked at the time, I loved the store and actually, I had one of my first demo's there and it really helped me understand the style of music I liked (and didn't). Was pleasantly surprised to see them on the forum and they also started stocking brands I love like Plinius.

If you have a spare one, yes please. I registered but nothing yet. The most annoying thing about films is finding the films which aren't in the top ten or even charted, but I've seen some great films only available on download and they've been great.

You do know it isn't a download site don't you?
