We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort.

PigletSpice. Thats the guy who buys items on ebay and a week later he is selling them for double the price.
He did this with Thriller a few months back.
He also buys used items on eBay and then a week later they appear on his site with the description, "New but supplied unsealed by supplier"
Mute have never supplied these unsealed to any supplier.
Heres one.

Trace through his history and you will probably find the same item bought in used condition.

This guy is on my "avoid at all costs" list.

He buys them off Amazon... I've seen things on there for maybe $45.00 and next week it's up for $150.00!
I have bought from him once but I kinda worked out a side thing. He was cool though.

MyMusicFix is worse.

Kinda like the guy who sells all the Japanese CD-4 albums.
He gets the good stuff but wants WAY too much for it, at least in my opinion.
For someone who's desperate enough...
I have about 80% of what he's selling and if I could get his prices, I'd be able to pay off 3/4 of my mortgage!
I guess he's getting it or he wouldn't be asking so much.

I understand a few years ago when conversions were a new thing and people were spending top buck to be the first to grab something.
But now, most of the stuff is out there and unless you absolutely HAVE to have the original...

I have records that I'm looking for but would never spend that much.
I did try to deal with him on one LP that was posted over a year ago (and still is!!)
But he wouldn't budge.
It's still listed and for the same price.
Oh well....
