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.
I always look forward to getting my copy, anxiously waiting for it.

I suspect the cost of publication is heavily subsidized by MD's vendors.
@cleeds  +1.  No doubt.  I do love paging through it.  I just wonder how many sales are generated by its existence.💵
Need to go check my mail for mine, have kept the last 6 for reference.

Yes, sweet coffee table material around the holidays for sure!  Just got mine yesterday.
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.
Looking forward to my copy as well- Elizabeth.
@inna  You have had a bad experience with MusicDirect?
No, I have not except couple of Mo-Fi reissue records that didn't sound good.
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
When i get it ill pop a cookie.
May this Christmas end the present year on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh and bright New Year. Here’s wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I received my catalog today.  I must say, some really great audio porn in the pages.  This thing must cost a small fortune to put out.  It is a nice item for the coffee table
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.
Already popped 3 cookies dudes!!!!!!!
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.

All the best,

Agreed- I look forward to the MD and Acoustic Sounds catalogs every year.
Happy Reading!
