Good luck with the new venture, chaps.

If I might pick some nits.....does the site absolutely have to be so dead with scripts blocked in my browser?

Thanks for the responsiveness and feedback, Achim. I was just expressing a pet peeve about a common modern design decision , rather than reporting a bug. I did send preamplified some feedback.

Thanks for your work in expanding opportunity and choice in our land.

Why are the 13direct shop links dead on the 13direct home page? (Not sure if this is the same issue that entropyagent is complaining about?)

If I type it in manually - adding "/shop/" - as per:      http://13direct.co.za/shop/      -  it then works and give access to the 13direct shop which is otherwise invisible? :baseball:

No links either on the 13hof.co.za homepage to either 13direct or the 13direct shop?  :walled:

So absolutely no way to find the shop unless you guess the link. :angrywife:

Having just browsed the store it's probably because those prices will scare the hell out of most punters.
Audiophile: There is almost no other group that prides themselves more on wasting good money on utterly worthless ****, and then trying to furiously blow smoke up their own ass to justify it.

Free your mind...and your ass will follow.

Think there is an error with the page scripts. The decimal point is one digit too far right on all the prices  :roll:

Hi WD

Yes there is no way to browse the store as it launching tomorrow. Well done on guessing. Check back tomorrow when the link and menus will be up.

i managed to browse the store by clicking on the menu tab (three horizontal stripes) on the top right - it allows you to go to individual categories

Having just browsed the store it's probably because those prices will scare the hell out of most punters.

actually some great pricing on some entry level items like the IDA-8 and the STA-9 power amp as well as the uDSD so its all cheaper than the regular retail prices from what i can see .... in fact at the pricing there the uDSD is a no brainer since its just marginally more than the Audioquest Dragonfly black but its much better specced than the Audiquest, so to me at this price the uDSD is the best usage you can make of the price being asked  :thumbs:

Can also browse the store just fine here, unless that is not the formal store to be launched?
