Black Friday, the unicorn of made-up sales, is coming

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of those completely made-up events – the unicorns of shopping discounts if you will – for online or bricks-and-mortar sales to whip the populace into a consumer buying frenzy a good month before Christmas blitzing really hits your pocketbook.

Nevertheless, there are some good deals out there to be had for those individuals with money burning a hole in their pockets, or who have been patiently waiting for a certain key high-fidelity item to go on sale – what that is I have no idea, but I figured if I could help connect a few ‘philes with a solid deal or two then it’s probably worth posting a little something.

So without further ado, or much fanfare, here some links to a few deals that may spur you on to damage your credit rating.

Qobuz is making Black Friday a week-long affair with anywhere from 40 to 80 per cent off hundreds of high-resolution titles for download. Check out the deals HERE.

Only $59 for The History of High-End Audio Electronics book. That's the cheapest price I've seen so far. I bought the book when it was $89.
