That's a good observation. Thanks for letting us know. I too live in Sweden and for us Swedes MD makes less sense by the day. Absurd delivery times, often with the only benefit of being marginally cheaper than the cheapest webstore available - VAT and shipping ($56.75 for this drop results in seldom expressed frowns) included.
And I actually really love this community. Nice way of interacting and yes, a lot of cheap gadgets to good discounts. If one can live with the, at times, 6 months(!!) delivery times, then I suppose this is your heaven. I belong to the type of people who rather pay a +50% premium towards the shipping cost for a speedy next day delivery. Anything above 3 days is OK. Going beyong a week of delivery time is painfully agonizing especially when waiting for your next dream gadget impatiently like a kid on x-mas. But hey, over 2 weeks to a month has actually been the very MINIMUM I had to wait for my orders here. And unless it's something truly exclusive and highly regarded such as Fostex's Purpleheart's, then I usually run short of justifications using this service. But hey, that's my 2c.
Much love to the MD team for making the best out of the current policies. I've had personal contact with you folks and I could not be more pleased with the exceptionally TOTL support. Hats off to you!
And to everyone else, I wish a very, very happy new year 2017!!!
