    You’re probably not the only one. Thus the exclusions...

    There's still plenty of good stuff from Speakers Corner and Sam Records.

    I wonder if they'll do a 15% off sale in November. I'm tempted to snag the Ornette Coleman Atlantic set now, but the extra 5% would equal another $8 or so off.

    APO SACD's is about all they've got that interests me since they stopped selling downloads.

    The 10% Qualifying sale is live right now. Is that really the Black Friday sale? The least they could have done was put AP/Impex, etc. up for sale too. This is a pretty disappointing turn of events, as I was hoping for that sweet, sweet 15%.

    Until APO starts releasing some SACD's again (or change their mind regarding selling downloads), my interest level in AS is pretty slim.

    probably wont happen for a long long time. It sells with no sale so no reason to put it on sale

    Also, going mostly vinyl only, their costs have increased. When an LP is defective, the retailer is paying shipping at least 4 times:
    1. To the retailer
    2. to the customer
    3. Back to the retailer
    4. Back to the wholesaler
    (possibly) 5. shipping a replacement to the customer & the incoming shipping on that.

    Especially at today's ridiculous pricing model, vinyl has a MUCH HIGHER defect rate than digital. That's why my (now dead) internet business largely got out of vinyl. It's not sustainable from a finacial pov. IMO, at today's vinyl pricing, the customer has every right to expect a 100% perfect pressing.

    10% off everything but their most desirable products is pretty pathetic for Black Friday. Is business so good they don't need to offer any serious discounts? This is the lowest discount I've ever seen from them in years and especially meaningless since they now charge sales tax everywhere. Maybe if nobody buys from them until Black Friday they'll increase the discount to at least 15%?

    Like everything else, I'm sure their costs for salaries, utilities etc. have gone up.

    Anyone have any idea if Acoustic Sounds is going to offer anything better than their pathetic 10% off non audiophile label records this year?

    But at least 15% off everything else would be the bare minimum I would expect from them. Worst. Black. Friday. ever.

    Agreed. Be glad that you didn't have a TV break this past week like I did. TV's are not getting blow out prices, & the quality is way down (at on under $1,000 sets).
