Dodax - get it while you can !

Unread post by Fretless » Fri Apr 07, 2017 12:45 pm

Seeing as I have a generous mood today I am going to let you all in on one of my little secrets; a webshop selling brand-new CD's, DVD's, Books, etc. at 'advantageous' prices. I've been a happy customer for the last year or so.

Dodax is based (I think) in Switzerland and was set up for the German market, but they have branched out to The Netherlands and the UK. With the imminent Brexit situation it is possible that conditions will change for deliveries to the UK. So if anyone wants to use this, be my guest.

Sign up, make an account, pay via PayPal.

Prices fluctuate (availability? exchange rates?) so I put things on a wish list and sometimes they are suddenly a lot cheaper.
Also there are quite often 2 prices quoted for an item and you can select the lower one. Postage is FREE.

Delivery isn't very fast - can take a week or more, they give an indication at purchase time and you can see when something has been dispatched.

Check it out - have fun. :grin: :guiness;

They have been on Amazon for years and have a UK address (for returns at least). There are several other sellers with similar deals.

Dodax also operate in Holland via an Amazon-style shop (Bol.com) but ordering direct is cheaper.

Bargain Alert !

For those who enjoy the sounds of Porcupine Tree and other modern melodic rock influenced by (mainly) Pink Floyd - you should take a good look at the output of Polish prog-outfit Riverside. I was looking for their first 3 conceptually-linked albums and spotted that there was a special 6-CD edition 'Reality Dream' which includes all three plus a live album and 2 extra studio discs.

Out Of Myself
Voices In My Head
Second Life Syndrome
Second Live Syndrome (Live version of the studio album)
Rapid Eye Movement
Rapid Eye Movement II

Riverside have a somewhat mournful, ambient approach but can also rock out when necesssary (they started as a metal band). Excellent musicians and songwriters with well-recorded and produced albums. In a blind listening you would think that they might be Steven Wilson's Porcupine Tree - except that Riverside have a better singer! But they are no PT clone, Riverside have a strong identity and style of their own; especially the guitarist who sadly and unexpectedly died a year or so ago. Top class music on a par with, for instance, Marillion.

Looking further I found the webshop 'Rock Serwis' in Poland that has this collection at a giveaway price of 100 zloty - about 20 pounds, Add 5 pounds P+P and you're still way cheaper than Amazon. Payment via PayPal / Credit Card.

Doesn't look like this shop is any better than Dodax overall - but might be useful for those hard-to-find, obscure east-european releases.

I might have a bit of that Fretless. I loved Porcupine Tree when they were active, and have listened to a lot of Riverside off the back of their PT connection on Spotify.

As if their prices weren't already low enough, the nice folks at Dodax are doing a one-day 10% off everything to celebrate their 8th anniversary. Add the code 'DDX8' to your order.
