I’ve found this thread in the old forum really useful so to start things off, QoBuz have some good offers on Pink Floyd’s studio albums, including 24 bit.
Yeah. I had a look at this last week when I got the email and typically, forgot to share. Some good stuff there at what are giveaway prices for Pink Floyd recordings!
Those remasters sound pretty good to us – our go-to versions on the music server!
Glad to see the old thread made it to the new forum. I am keeping a close eye on Qobuz because about this time of year in the past couple of years they have the bonkers silly prices for about a day!
What is so special about the Qobuz prices? You can get the CD version for a lot cheaper.
Jazz House Records is listing some ECM, including New Series at £5, £8 for doubles.
Qobuz is interesting for Sublime people who buy high res audio. Very often much cheaper than CD quality, CD quality prices are a hit and miss.
Juno download had some great offers a few months ago, and potentially still do.
They seem to have a new year promo with 20% off using a discount code HAPPY2019 or similar, 1 per customer which I think applies to anyone, existing customer or not, it’s on their site as a banner if I log out.
Yes, some of it is beyond belief. Ella Fitzgerald - The Complete Songbooks, John Lennon - Gimme Some Truth, Aretha Franklin - Soul Queen. All £12.49 less 20%, how are they doing it?
Juno had some good stuff at good prices not long back. Well worth keeping an eye on.
When I was doing my food shopping this morning I noticed that Sainsbury’s is offering vinyl albums at two for £25, which includes double albums. The choice is limited and excludes the Beatles remasters, but the new Kate Bush remasters, for instance, are included.
A few hours left on this offer - I really don;t know the early stuff but am very tempted to take a punt on the 1st six early years albums in hi-res (Continuation apparently only available with the original set?).
Wise move or for completists only?
The hi res albums will be around £8-£11 each.
I always forget the time zone differences - the offer expired at 11pm as I was deciding what to get and adding things to the basket.
The Juno download 20% offer expires on 22nd Jan.
I’m not sure it actually is an offer, but it’s a 6-disc box set for £15.99, which is a lot cheaper than it seems to be available elsewhere. I’ve just finished listening to the second disc and I thought it was superb.
