Prices are 50% more expensive that buying from retailers in the USA and that is with delivery to Australia .... of course they can charge what they like but in my eyes they are a bunch of greedy profiteers!! Stay with Amazon, the independent retailers overseas or if you must purchase locally, JB HiFi.
Hey DJDBX! I've only just seen your review now. Hey, y'know, most of our customers think we're really reasonably priced... surprised to hear you say we're greedy profiteers. I'm keen to know if we can chat about the item you purchased - maybe there was a reason the price was perceivably high (import tax? or it varied somehow from standard release? hard to say without knowing exactly what the item was). Either way, I reckon it's worth a chat... we're a genuine, hard-working aussie brand that try very hard to keep our prices down, despite lacking the bulk buying power of giants like the big yellow and black place. Drop me a line..? Cheers, Tori (co-owner at The Muses).
The DVD / Book purchased from memory was Led Zepplin The Ultimate collection by Chris Welch. I have bought much music from Muses back in the 80's and 90's. I still buy heaps of music. My vinyl, DVD and CD library collection totals around 20,000 units so I believe I am justified to comment about where the best prices are found. In addition, decades of being a DJ around Australia supports my knowledge. I expected local importers to make a profit but not 50% over what an item costs, delivered to my door from the UK or USA!
The Muses is a great local music store in the heart of Adelaide's Rundle Mall. If you love your music then this is the destination for you. Not only do they have the latest releases but they also stock vinyls, local talent LPs/EPs, second hand material, shirts and other paraphernalia. They are price competitive with the giant music retailers. You can sign up for a loyalty card offering you great discounts, which Im proud to be part off. Most of all, this place is dear to my heart because they held a signing by my favourite band The Butterfly Effect, got to say hi and got all my CDs signed :)
Best place in Adelaide CBD for imports i think, they have access to many imports and usually get them in as soon as they can and at pretty good prices too... staff are very knowledgeable about most music and movies and there is a huge range of both in store, not to mention a heap of collectables and tshirts, I go in there at least once a week to see what's new..
