Hello and hope you’ve had a good week…

Two especially big announcements this week to tell you about.

We now accept bitcoin If you wish to pay by bitcoin, contact by message over at Discogs/Bookogs/Filmogs and the payment will be arranged. We are using the same payment system as some major companies and brands around the world. We believe this to be a great addition to the other payment options already offered. We are very interested to hear what you think about bitcoin.

We will be listing DVD and VHS on filmogs filmogs launched its Marketplace yesterday and we have some DVD and VHS titles ready to be listed! You will find them trickling on over the next handful of weeks. You’ll find the link to us in the Profile and Shipping Information on Discogs or go here.

More CDs, Cassettes and Vinyl will be listed this week, keep your eyes peeled, these will be across all sorts of genres and styles, we believe in stocking a wide variety of genres and formats for a wide choice.

Play grading focus This week we focus on the Akai 4000DS that’s used for Reel to Reel play grading, xagu on HiFi engine gives this 5 stars and says ‘Great little reel to reel. Amazing sound.’ Don’t forget, we are always able to play grade anything you wish to buy.

Podcast and/or YouTube? Would you like to see/hear podcasts and/or YouTube videos from us? We’d like to know.

Did you know? Ozzy Osbourne came a cropper when a catapult malfunctioned during his 1981 Diary Of A Madman tour. A catapult was supposed to throw meat into the audience but due to a fault when Ozzy put his foot on a lever, several pounds of offal hit the singer on the back of his head. (thanks to thisdayinmusic for this).

That’s it for this week, thanks as always for supporting us and to our customers, past, present and future.

Speak soon, John from mandersmedia

Play grading equipment focus. This week, we will focus on the amplifier, the Pioneer SA-1000. This is a Class A Amplifier from the early 1970s and has a beautiful sound, great features like a ‘mode’ selector which allows you to listen in mono or just left and right channels or even reverse the channels! Take a look at more information.

PledgeMusic. As you know, we are very interested in supporting music here at mandersmedia, we are supporters and donators to Help Musicians UK, a fantastic musicans’ related cause so, you’ll start seeing posts from PledgeMusic. If you haven’t already heard of it, It’s a great way to connect artists and fans and for crowdfunding.

We’re moving to sensible pricing! Tired of seeing £3.84, £4.82, £0.87? We’re moving to more sensible pricing ending with a ‘9’, we hope you find this easier and less silly!

A Joyous Third Advent Sunday to You!

When then-24-year-old Korean HJ Lim recorded the (just-about) complete Beethoven Sonatas for EMI (Warner), released for a tenner on iTunes, it made a splash more for its audacity than quality.
