Buying Eurobeat is better habit than drinking or smoking :evil:

I think the fans of modern Eurobeat focused on waiting for new SEB once per 2 months or last time even rarely, maybe in addition they buy some single older compilations.

For me the most important was to collect full A.Beat-C. albums discography, it was a couple pieces, and I did it. Now I collected finally first two years of SEB Extended Version. I have also a bit SEB and Maharaja Night Hi-NRG Revolution CDs from 1993 to 1996. If I gather this with my Asia and Time albums and TEB series probably I have one of the most rare collection among people, which showed it on the internet or added on Discogs account. 8)

The last eurobeat album I purchased was SEB 229. It cost like $30, yet the only real highlight was Tiger.

I still do. Purchased SEB 234, 235 and 236 just the other day. And since my appartment was hit by a fire in May, I'll be repurchasing what I lost but also what was missing to fill the gaps.

So, SEB 91 and 149 as stadalones.
Then, SEB 170 to 200, 201 to 204 and 220 to 240 and onward. I won't be purchasing SEB 205 to 219 because I don't consider these volumes to very good.

I buy digital too. However, as you guys know, I'm a quality maniac. So only from stores that offers FLAC or any other lossless format.

:D

in addition to that, i'd love to see related merchandise (as Sinclaire Style did some time ago) and other medias (such as music videos, interviews, making ofs, live streaming, podcasts, etc). It wouldn't directly be profitable but it's something that can be monetized so i do count as a product too :)

Yep! I have been buying NEW copies since Vol. 213. I buy second hand off Amazon and Ebay for older additions.

I pre-ordered each SEB since 220.
Even though the bi-monthly release rhythm is a pain in the ears, it saves a bit money which can be used for older releases. Mostly, I buy a SEB when I think "Oh, this one has a good song on it. Let's hope the rest is as good as this song."
Anyway, I only buy new and sealed SEBs. I have some non-Eurobeat albums in used conditions and it kills me to see scratched CD cases or folded booklets.

Well, I also buy digital releases. Almost like Lebon, I prefer lossless formats. When a song isn't available on CD, I look up on juno, bandcamp or something to find it in lossless. And only if it's not available there I buy on iTunes which has an almost-CD quality at a decent price. And AmazonMP3 can only be considered if this is the only place where I get a song I really, really want badly.

My order is CD > lossless download > iTunes > AmazonMP3.

I used to get them all up until a few years back. Now adays I skip around a lot. The last one I had to have was SEB 233. That one had many songs that I love.

I go to Juno downlaods and get stuff from Time to Time and of course If classic Eurobeat Vinyl comes my way; I put it all on hold and purchase that instead. 8)

I started methodically buying SEBs at 190, and I'm still doing it.

Definitely. A relatively large haul with me on my way back home from Japan. Though I go for the good albums alone these days.

On the very topic: My haul from the 2 week trip to Japan. Only 3 of the albums I bought ended up being doubles.... Well could've been worse. I was mostly happy for the Eurofire one. And next time I know for sure to bring an empty suitcase so I don't need to be careful with what I buy.
