The week in mandersmedia

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

The week at mandersmedia

Hi everyone and hope you’ve had a great week. There’s quite a bit going on here at mandersmedia…

We’ve had a re-brand! Thanks to Perez Parrido for the new look, it’s a fantastic visual which we think more accurately represents mandersmedia as for some time now, we have been selling multiple formats and the old image really represented Vinyl Records. We like its dynamic, colourful but classic look with plenty of movement. Our logo has also changed to more accurately reflect our image moving forwards. The font here has also changed from an ornate to cleaner contemporary look. We hope you like it and we’re always interested to hear your feedback.

New ways to pay! We have just introduced new ways to pay at the shop on Discogs which include Paypal Credit (in GBP), Cashiers Cheque, Cheque, Money Order and Cash. We would like to offer as many options as possible to purchase to make it as convenient for you to buy your favourite music as possble.

We can play grade everything we sell! We’re very proud to be able to play grade everything we sell… Last week, we highlighted the Akai Open Reel and Akai 8 Track machines used for this, this time, it’s the Sony MDS-JE440 MiniDisc we highlight, this is a classic player from Sony and, in the future, MiniDiscs will become another format we will be selling.

Lots of Price reductions! Yesterday, there were around 100 price reductions through mandersmedia across the different formats, the Blog with them all on was published last night, it’s our biggest amount of price reductions for you! Every week, prices get reviewed to make sure they remain fair and competitive.

Did you know? James Brown holds the record for most US Hot 100 entries (ninety-nine) without ever scoring a number-one song. (thanks to

that’s everything for this week, if you’re a fan of CDs and Cassettes, keep your eyes on the shop on Discogs as there’s more being added this week…

until next time… thanks for all your support as always, John

more cassettes added

More cassettes have been added to purchase at mandersmedia store on Discogs with more to come over the next few days (around 200 being added), it is quite a big update; it doesn’t mean that MM are no longer focusing on other formats, quite the opposite, if there’s an interest, it’ll be stocked!

The week at mandersmedia; Domestic and International parcel pricing expanded, amended taglines, Countries,, Songlines, Price reduced

Hi all, a few things in the pipeline this week to share with everyone. At the moment, the shipping prices are being expanded to give more options when purchasing from mandersmedia, the United Kingdom prices have already been added and this now means there are no weight limits, just order what you like and the automatic checkout shipping service will give you a price no matter what quantity you wish to order! The Intrnational service will include automatic shipping prices up to 10kg (up from 2kg) with an option to get a price for weights above this; this is currently being worked on. mandersmedia are using Parcelforce Worldwide for the additional shipping options, this is a body that’s recognised by the EMS.

This is now viewed in 27 countries and rising, as always, thanks again for your support, it’s always appreciatws; if you like what you see, please share this with others.

You may have noticed on the posts it states ‘Rating: 0’, this is not mandersmedia giving the post a ‘0’, it’s simply the way it gets posted. mandersmedia thinks they’re great posts!

Hope you’re enjoying the Songlines playlists that are being posted and that they’re enriching your musical pallette, the Fania playlist is being particularly enjoyed here.
