Every few months I need to make a certain hifi-related purchase. My retailer of choice for this is of course thomann.de, hands down the best european retailer for audio, music and hifi-related stuff. Great selection, great prices, amazing service.
However, there is one thing about thomann that really drives me insane now that I experienced it several times.
Let me show you:
I did my order, a few days later I get my parcel which was sent free of shipping charges.
Wow, great, lets open it up:
Lot’s of filling material. So, let’s get rid of this and see what I ordered:
Two Shure N447-Needles for my Turntables, the packaging for each one being roughly the size of a large stamp.
Wanna see it again?
This is total madness and extremely bad for the environment. This happened a few times to me (also with other orders) and I already wrote a mail to Thomann about it, but they did not even bother to answer. But this time I really had enough and thus decided to make this blog-post.
