Does anyone know where the cheapest place to buy the new Japanese remastered albums ?

Thanks in advance.

HMV in Japan sounds like the cheapest so far. Apparently to the U.S. they cost about $24

Thanks to Richard for this info.

However now that I'm ready to buy, the damn shipping is almost as high as the price of one disc!

For two of them:

Total cost of Product 4,952
Delivery Cost 2,300
Subtotal 7,252
Packing Charge 362

FINAL TOTAL 7,614

That's about $69.. still slightly cheaper than CD Universe, but maybe having a U.S. shipper is worth a few bucks more?

I'm not sure what to do...

I went ahead and ordered 3 of them from HMV. The total with shipping was $92.71. The shipping charge went down a little when they actually shipped it. And they use only FedEx for international shipping, which is a major plus in my opinion.

I ordered A Kind Of Magic, The Miracle and Innuendo. I was originally going to start with just Made in Heaven (sunrise cover) and Innuendo, but MIH is delayed until March 31 so I'll order that next month. Aside from that one, I'm getting them in reverse order, with the goal being to replace the 'Crown Jewels' discs last, plus I'm skipping Live Killers and Flash Gordon :-P

Just an update for my fans, and all of you who have participated in this frightfully popular thread...

My package is stuck in Memphis for some reason.. apparently there was a weather delay before, but why it's still there, nobody knows. So I'm hoping for Monday now.

They arrived! I'm listening to A Kind Of Magic now. Perfect sound. So clear yet so full. I had to make some adjustments such as turning down the subwoofer :-P
