OK, so I received my 3 SACD titles from DV today. You want to totally talk about a very cool company that knows their customers??? Obviously, DV is reading our posts, which I always knew, though I don't know who it is.

I've always talked about ordering titles in even numbers. This time, I forgot my own rule, and ordered the 3, and waited for them to arrive, potentially cracked. I opened the package, and there were the 3 SACD titles, and a random 4th CD title to give me my even number!!

I love these guys!!!!

And, I have every intention of listening to that CD they sent along. :) It's called "The World Of Epoch" About 80 minutes of various titles. All in DDD Stereo. Nice!

Oh shit, I only ordered 3. Damn, didn't follow my own rules. If they arrive broken........

Increments of 2!
I can understand having two packaged together helping to prevent damage, but why would three be any different? Anyway they just use regular jewel cases which can be replaced cheaply anyway. Did I say that I hate regular jewel boxes. I wish that the Super Jewel box was used instead!

Because, they pack them side by side. So, with 3 discs, 2 of them go side by side on bottom, and the third one goes on top of the 2. Creating an uneven surface. Believe me, I've purchased a crap ton from them over the last few years, and nearly every time I ordered an odd number, something gets busted.

Overseas packaging materials are the one weak link in the otherwise mighty D-V chain. I've ordered lots of stuff from other outfits in the UK (and Europe)--Presto, Esoteric, jpc.de, Amazon.fr--and have never had a problem with breakage. Some even use the same thin wraparound/self-adhesive corrugated cardboard that D-V does, only they typically wrap the CDs in an extra layer of bubble wrap before encasing them in the cardboard. With D-V, there's breakage and/or "crackage" more often than not, even when the GOS rule is in effect. I love 'em anyway, and fair enough: jewel cases are cheap.

As D~V's prices on their discs are cheap enough, I find spending the few extra bucks on priority s/h [no tracking] decreases the time they spend in transit and arrive at my New York destination within days lessening the chance of cracked cases .......

My three arrived today. No cracking. Animals also arrived today. Lots of listening to do. Thankfully I am retired.

That said: my shallow-pyramid package of 3 arrived yesterday with no breakage and just one crack!
