Hi Paul, just to say that Queen made a second run of the “studio collection” box set: it’s available on their official store and came out on 1st of April…

Just got a great deal this weekend for this set from Amazon.ca, $319.99 plus tax (total was $358.39. Great looking set that I unboxed and so far sounds very nice but there is NO download card included, damn it! Price went back up to $399.99 plus taxes already so glad I took the plunge when I did.

Got the set on the 9th. What a beast of a thing. Very well put together. Spun the discs over the weekend gone. Nearly all play well. Occasional ticks and pops with some non-fill squelches on a few albums. The sound in my opinion is tremendous. A veil lifted in comparison to my old 70s vinyl. The later albums I had zoned out on at the time and now are proving to have many gems. I am very taken with Innuendo.
Amazon Italy have maintained the price as of this posting. Amazon UK are currently not offering it due to issues. Presumably picky buggers like me sensitive to every snap, crackle and pop however slight.

Robert Todd

So I went for Amazon UK in the end. My thinking being that it would be quicker than Italy. I have Amazon Prime. Turns out I may be wrong. At the moment it’s in Grimbergen (probably not code for any dour English town you care to name) due for arrival Monday coming.

Geoff

Currently £230:72 on Amazon UK.

Robert Todd

Geoff you’re killing me here.

Robert Todd

Very tempted by this.
Has anybody received one from Amazon Italy yet?
What’s Amazon Italy like for packaging?
I have used France and Germany both alright particularly Germany. With Germany I had a return which went back to the UK returns hub.
My understanding is that this items comes in a proper box in the same way as the Beatles Stereo and Mono sets. Is that the case?

Robert Todd

Thanks Paul. Assuming Amazon Italy doesn’t mess around then we have a winner.

LMRC

Go ahead Robero. I ordered it as well from Amazon.it and it came as described by Paul.

With DVD or blu-ray ok, coz it’s on free tv later. And you want to see a new movie now. But records, 20 years and more old… I think it’s something different. And they know it’s only a special clientele, which buys these SDE and expensive old music… You never would buy a Beatles Box, when you know it’s half prize after 6 months. You would wait. That’s the difference.

LMRC

It’s one opinion Paul but wholesalers marketeers knows well what (shall) sells well at the commercial release or not. With Queen, considering the fan base, the exclusivity of the boxset released , they knew they will catch the worthy customers first.
A price decrease is the signal of a dropping interest. Alienating the prospects by playing with the price here and there with bucks is not per say a winning strategy long term. Indeed, prices always drop but here it has fall too fast I think. Almost at launch. Which in business term can be associated to a possible flop.

LMRC

Meant the wealthy customers..

Jon

Well said, LMRC! But, I don’t think it’s policy of amazon, it’s policy of the record companies. To take fans for fools, first it’s called “limited Edition”, then it goes cheap… coz “limited” is only a word to make it sell faster. They never learn to respect customers. And when many people stop to buy all these expensive “super deluxe editions”, coz of being fooled, the companies will cry again… like in the end of the nineties.

LMRC

The bummer is for those who ordered it weeks ago! Nice policy Amazon!

Chris

Unbelievably dumb question, I’m sure, but anyway: when you order sets like this, or the Isley Bros. CD set that’s had a good price on amazon.it, or whatever, is it genuinely the same set that you’d get if you ordered it from amazon.com or amazon.co.uk? It’d be a huge bummer for me to shell out a lot of money for a set, and when you get it find that all the lyrics/liner notes/etc. are in Italian.

Chris

Thanks! That’s what I wanted to hear!

Fat Old Bloke

I’d be far more excited if they decided to do a box of all the Queen albums in 5.1
That’s something I would buy

eric slangen

Yes. Amazon.de is the best!!

For those in the States.
Articles: EUR 245.82 (We don’t have to pay VAT)
Shipping cost: EUR 62,80 (this is a shame. does anyone even trust amazon to ship this well across the pond?)

Alex

How do you got the price alerts? thanks. ciao

The easiest way is to add hundreds of box sets to your cart and then save for later. Now do this in every amazon country and re-visit every 8 hours. :-) Amazon tells you when items in your cart have changed price.
Or…you can just visit this site every day. :-)

re. Bob Marley box – you mean 146 Euros, not £146!

Jeremy

Sorry…yes, euros, not pounds. Thanks for correcting.

Jeremy

Paul:

I also noticed that Amazon Italy has the new 11-LP Bob Marley vinyl box set (standard, not deluxe) on sale for only £146. Another great deal!
