Best Christmas Catalog for any audiophile? Music Direct (just got mine)
The Music Direct catalog is like a dream come true for any audiophile. Just browsing through the pages is a joy. Who cares if I can't afford much, (or ANY!) just a nice gift for any audiophile... This year's cover: The Beatles
It is a beautifully produced publication but I can't help wondering by what % they could reduce their prices without lavishing so much money on a high quality glossy catalog. Come to think of it, it may be the thickest publication I now receive annually as phonebooks are all but extinct.
Couldn't care less for them. Throw their catalog away next moment I get it. They got nothing that I might want except maybe distilled water, though I don't buy even that from them, from Needle Doctor and Elusive Disc.
Just got mine, rather boring seeing the same old stuff year after year but biggest disappointment is the apparent dropping of the Dire Straits 45rpm MoFi reissues that were announced in 2017. “Brothers in Arms” was superb but it looks like this may be the only one ever issued ... which is a pity
I ordered something from Music Direct just cuz'. A pair of PS Audio Noise Harvesters. (If you buy two or more, they are on sale $50 each) So I bought two. Going to try them on the line to the amp. No power conditioner on that line... but empty duplex before the outlet to the amp.
I got my Marantz Reference components and my JBL 4319 monitors from MusicDirect and couldn't be happier dealing with them. They were the only source for them. It's nice to still get a catalog the old fashioned way.
