I've finally joined emusic! With my 25 free downloads, I added several issues in Jarvi's Shostakovich cycle! I should be able to get the rest with my first month's allowance. Excellent catalog and service.

CD never arrived - allthatjazz issued a full refund  :)

  I just hate it when that happens and it has happened with me a few times in the past.  I'd much rather receive the CD than the refund  :-\!!

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned yourmusic here before, but you can get DG, Philips, etc. CDs for $6.99 a pop. Not a lot of stock, but, hey, that's pretty cheap, right? And no shipping charge. You can quit any time.

I searched for references for this site in this forum, but none turned up. Anyway, has anyone bought classical CDs from overstock.com? If so, could you please share you experiences (good/bad/so-so)? :)

For example, consider these deals

Kempff's Stereo Cycle of Beethoven Sonatas for just under $39! :o :o
http://www.overstock.com/Books-Movies-Music-Games/Beethoven-The-Piano-Sonatas-Wilhelm-Kempff/562545/product.html

Schubert's for $34! :o :o
http://www.overstock.com/Books-Movies-Music-Games/Schubert-The-Piano-Sonatas-Wilhelm-Kempff/589867/product.html

And the Schumann Pinao works for $18! :o :o
http://www.overstock.com/Books-Movies-Music-Games/Schumann-Piano-Works-Wilhelm-Kempff/505060/product.html

Although they don't seem to have a collection as extensive as Amazon does, these first two sets don't sell for less than $50 at amazon.com. I'd like your opinion on this seller. Thanks.
Regards,
Navneeth

Thanks for the response, George. I'm wondering if this particular Beethoven set has been used or damaged somehow, since most other places on the web seems to be selling at $60+. I guess I'd better send them an e-mail to find out.

Nah, I got my Kovacevich LvB set from them and it was dirt cheap. Arrived quick and mint condition!  8)

IMO avoid it for a few months. The mysterious "new owners" could be anyone. Not likely to result in bad things for the users (something like the RIAA trying to monitor everything on there would be a nightmare, plus potential PR disaster), but there's always a chance.

Thanks, I actually never used them, but I know others do, so I thought I'd let them know.  :)

Cd-Wow! seems to have redesigned their website and updated the classical section, too (which used to be a mess and limited). They still don't seem to care to put information about performers so one has to use google. Shipping is free and it's pretty fast (considering they're based in Hong Kong).

I've been trading and buying from individuals and have to admit I like that best.

For most classical music, I hit Amazon -- my tastes aren't esoteric enough yet to require something else.

For popular music, there's evilmusic...
