    Wait, what?

    I had no idea there were still places that did not practice recycling... :wtf:

    This is one of the few catalogs I am aware of that is still a classic, well-produced catalog. I enjoy them!

    I hope no one gets what I said earlier to be dismissive of this company or the catalog. I've looked at them in the past and they are well produced and stocked full of gear I wouldn't buy but that's because I've been satisfied with what I own for some years now. I'm not in the market for anything they sell. I get tons of catalogs from companies I've never done business with and they all get binned. I simply don't have the consumer gene I once had.

    Makes me feel like a kid again when we used to get the Sears Wishbook catalog and I’d go through thoroughly making “the list.”

    It’s a really nicely done catalog, this year’s seems heavier on the gear than the music but it’s nice nonetheless.

    Got mine today. I do enjoy it. I bought a pricey piece of gear from MD a couple years ago. Maybe that puts me on the lifetime mailing list. It's cool with me.

    Mine came yesterday. Quite a few of the equipment pictures seemed blurry to me. Anybody else notice this?

    That's where all great thinking (and purchasing) is done ;)

    I consider the MD catalog the nearest thing to audio porn.

    I got mine in the mail today. I love my SL-1210GR so much that I couldn't resist ordering a SL-1000R.

    It reminds me of pulling the trigger on my 2020 NSX. I remembered how much I loved my Integra, and I couldn't resist temptation.

    I guess I'm the perfect example of why it is important to put out great entry level products. You can really generate a lot of brand loyalty.

    And, to drag this sorta back on topic: I wouldn't have even thought of purchasing the SL-1000R had I not seen it in the Music Direct catalog today. Amazing how catalogs still inspire spur of the moment purchases!

    They send them to all Technics owners.

    I miss my Integra. A great, fun car. It saved my life a few times too, allowing me to maneuver through dangerous traffic situations. It felt like it was wired into my brain. I couldn't even imagine a NSX...!

    Oh, on topic; my MD catalog came yesterday!

    no way I’d impulse buy something that cost $190, let alone $19,000.00.

    but I did receive my catalog...

    went through some of it with my wife who was stunned at some of the prices.

    I pre ordered new order PCL box set and it went back for re-press before I could get mine. It was released mid October.

    First off why not recycle?

    Second, covid is not political.

    Seriously, no recycling, throwing paper in the garbage bin ?! You must be living in the middle ages somewhere :eek:.

    Got mine yesterday. It's audio porn and I love it. No big purchases, but remembered I just have to have the first two Police albums on vinyl...

    Got mine as well, and I'm always impressed with the effort that must go into such a beast. I look forward to flipping through it during a day off during the holidays.

    Got mine yesterday. I love leafing through it. I am not anticipating buying anything though.

    I got one last year, Joni Mitchell on the cover I believe, but nothing yet this year. Nice catalog I usually keep it for a few months and eventually recycle. Last time I bought from MD was maybe 4 years ago.

    Ha, there’s a good chance I still have the one from two years ago with the Beatles on the cover somewhere... this is a good reminder that I need to clear some things out... :sigh:

    Fascinating to see so many artifacts of 'antiquated' technology -- vacuum tube amps, record players, cartridges and phono stages -- prominently shown for sale in 2020!
