Music on Special Offer Thread?

A bit of a blip on pricing I think - the new Dead Can Dance - album Dionysus 24bit on 7 digital at £2.58

 

Grabbed that one! I wonder if there's some sort of auto-pricing thing going on, and it comes out so low because there's only two (albeit long) tracks?

Just purchased The Doors Complete Studio Albums (79 tracks) 24 bit from 7 Digital - £22.99.

Which seems odd as they want £40.49 for MP3 and £52.49 for 16 bit.

It's a steal.

Can’t spot the hi-res version. Is it still there?

Uncheck all filters except 24 bit, then press view all.

Can't see anywhere to change the filters - on iPad or PC.

Does this help? https://www.7digital.com/artis...46977?f=12%2C16%2C17

Yes, thank you, although it'd be nice to know how to see / use the filters!

You have to search first before the option to filter the results displays. Working for me on an iPhone, although I appreciate that doesn’t help you much.

Hi Gavin,

I have just checked and it's definitely still there, 24 bit FLAC at £22.99 for 79 tracks in total.

I'm listening to the first album now and I still maintain it's a steal. Even if only 6 of the albums are any good, still excellent VFM.

ATB,

Mike

Just transferring the files to my QNAP at the moment!

That's what I'm doing, but I still don't see the filters! The search results pop up and allow me to choose between track, album or artist, and then I select the artist. It then lists tracks, albums and EPs, but I can't see any option to filter the results. Can anyone post a screen shot?

Gavin,

Ignore the search results that drop down. When you have typed in the artist e.g. the doors, press return on your keyboard or press the magnifying glass in the search box. What comes up is usually a small selection of available music. You can then press view all or untick the filter boxes as required then press apply followed by view all.

Some of the recent discounts on Qobuz are not helping in high res as they don’t give the discount to Sublime or Sublime+ customers, a missed opportunities. For me only an advantage when in standard cd quality, like my today’s buys.

Bert,  Sometimes I have seen that the discount is applied when checking out.  Give it a try to check.  If not, just don't continue with payment.

I emailed them some months ago as offers for CD quality/HiRes generally had the supplemental Sublime/Sublime + dscounts applied too - now many offers do not also discount the Sublime/Sublime+ price and there are literally pennies between hi-res offer and hi-res Sublime costs - in reality this has prevented me buying many albums as it's not really an offer as a Sublime subscriber.  Perhaps a bit worrying if they are prepared to alienate the Sublime/Sublime+ user base.

Don't hesitate. Some of the finest music ever made.

Offer still there and looks good.

One thing I've realised with Juno downloads is while there are many true bargains, some seem good but aren't in reality.

For example, the other day I spotted a Ministry of Sound 'Country Gold' compilation which is advertised as £99.60 (crossed out), down to £12.49.

Bargain you might think but only as the album cost is based on 60 tracks at £1.66 each.

The CD version if £7 on the famous river.

Qobuz Sublime offers a discount on HiRes for "a large part of the catalogue".  And from what I've seen, it's a big catalogue. If they offered a discount for "all of the catalogue" there would be grounds for complaint. Always read the small print.

Not sure if you're replying to one of my replies Harry, but if so, I was trying to indicate that the special offers are annoying when an album already has CD/Hi Res/and Sublime Hi Res pricing but only the Hi Res offering is reduced in a sale not the Sublime Hi Res cost which is part of the catalogue offering a reduction for Sublime subscribers - it's happening more of late and makes Sublime less attractive.

It was more a general comment about "special offers" although it was your post, citing Qobuz's latest attemt to offer something and deliver less, which prompted me. I am wary of this type of behaviour and it doesn't seem to matter how many times different traders dress it up in different ways, they will duck and wriggle in the small print. We shouldn't encourage them.

Missed that when you posted, it’s still there and downloading to my NAS now, thanks a lot.

I am also annoyed as it presents a disadvantage for sublime people as now all the others get the sublime discount for free. It would have been right to also reduce the sublime price, at least a little.

Oh dear! Yet again Qobuz bring out that ether warehouse full of junk, it's the same old stuff they've been pedalling in the sale for about two years now. The short of stuff that used to be in the sale bin at your local record shop that nobody would touch.

The Pias catalogue is worth a look though, apart from that I struggled to find anything inspiring here.
