Just wanting to now any experiences with A & B Sound and whether or not they are ok or not. Have placed pre-orders with them and would like any feedback anyone has before the pre-orders "expire".

Thanks in advance

I have used them on more than one occassion and found them to be quite good. I am in Canada, so the fact of not paying duty is all good. I have used other Canadian online retailers but their delivery times are not as good as A&B Sound. The orders I have place with them arrive within 5 days, and that includes pre-orders (5 days after). The prices are usually good, especially the sale items.

They're great as long as the items aren't on backorder. They are notorious for long waiting periods before they get it in stock.

Their range seems a little limited. They don't have La Femme Nikita, Wonder Boys or the Virgin Suicides available for example.

"La Femme Nikita" had been out forever on Trimark. And just re-released on MGM DVD. Why didn't you buy this before? But the other two? Um, no wonder A&B doesn't have them. NOBODY does! "The Virgin Suicides" is out on 12/19. And "The Wonder Boys" is out 1/9.

Agreed. And they're very price-competitive, including their shipping costs.

Thanks for the backorder note. I'll cancel my Leprechaun 4 order...Trimark announced that they're releasing it in the US after I ordered it from absound.ca anyway...

Do they charge tax to ship to other provinces? What's their shipping cost to Canadian provinces outside of BC like?
