Since you live in SoCal (like me), I would recommend the monthly (first Sunday of every month) record show in Pasadena (they have lots of vinyl, but also lots of CDs and DVDs). If you (or anyone else) is interested let me know.

I've been going there for years and have got quite of few deals. For instance, I'd been looking for John Lurie's Excess Baggage soundtrack (score really), but couldn't find anywhere (for a reasonable price that is). I found it at the show for $1. Used, but in mint condition.

I also found the Apollo 13 Academy score for $7. Excellent score I must say. It's my 3rd copy. First one I paid $50 years ago off eBay - it's a pretty rare score.

Now I'm spoiled and don't want to pay anymore than $5 for a standard disc

It is quite a drive from Irvine to Pasadena, but if they have really good deals I might do it at least once to get to know it. Where is it located and what are the hours?

Yeah, it's a bit farther from Irvine - I'm in Buena Park so it's about 35 minutes for me.

The record/cd show (as well as the normal swap meet) is located at:

Pasadena City College Flea Market & Record Swap
1570 E Colorado Blvd (Colorado & Bonnie), Pasadena, CA (626)585-7906

I think the hours are 8:00AM - 3:00PM. Most people are set up by 7:00AM.

So Gychang, those BIBS have you wanting to buy new CDs? Great! Good speakers will do that.

I say stay away from BMG. Junk, most of it. Like that bad old days of Columbia house and their cheap junk vinyl pressings - and the cassettes were worse!

Now days I get my stuff from Amazon - great selection, Ebay - great deals, and some local shops.
Another source I really like is Acoustic Sounds. Lots of primo stuff, great reviews, good email news letter. Well worth your time to look at.

Anyone remember CDNOW? They ruled, until Amazon swallowed them up.
Take the Speaker Voltage Test!

Once you own a few CD's sign up with It's a CD trading place that costs you 1.75 per CD traded. That covers shipping (they provide envelopes and CD shells) and their commission.
You post your collection and a wish list. They match your collection with other members' wish list and let you know that you have something others want. Every time you send someone one of your CD's, someone else who has CD's on your wish list will send you one. It is a great way to listen to a lot of music for cheap. You can always make MP3s or copies of the CDs you put up for trade. You lose the original packaging.
I traded quite a few CD's so far and never got ripped off.
