Looked at DVD-A's on CD-WOW the other day.... vast majority listed were "awaiting delivery" !!! So any experiences re on-line sources (apart from Amazon) from 'Hikers would be welcome.
I don't know how he sourced them, but you can look at their website
, or have a look at Amazon.de ( here
) or Amazon.co.uk ( here
) . If either link doesn't work, use the search function>Search Classical and Opera and enter Tacet as label (you can narrow it down to DVD-A as format on .de, or enter DVD as title on .co.uk, but knowing Amazon search, you might end up with some titles missing).
From experience, unless you're in Germany Amazon.co.uk is normally less expensive than .de, especially for shipping.
I've bought a lot of DVD Audio's from DVD Pacific, here
I've also bought quite a few DVD-A's from Amazon Japan, mostly jazz ( here
), but also things like the soundtrack (actually symphonic suite, most of it is identical to the OST) to the anime film AKIRA (both film and soundtrack recommended, soundtrack here
You can access all/most of the DVD-A's Amazon Japan carry here
, please note that imports are mixed with Japanese releases (you used to be able to sort imports/Japan only).
As noted elsewhere, some of my favourite DVD-A's have only been released this year (Pere Ubu: The Modern Dance, Dual Disc, but DVD side is DVD-A) and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy: The Letting Go.
And I'm really looking forward to the Doors: Perception box set, 6 CD's + 6 DVD-A's (least expensive at Amazon UK
last time I checked).
EDIT: DVD Pacific DVD-A link added, was functional again 10 minutes after I sent them an email about the link being down.
