IKEA WTF?

Je kent ze vast wel, de Expedit kasten van IKEA die perfect aansluiten op de behoefte van de vinyl DJ. Stilletjes maar zeer dankbaar worden ze afgenomen door ons DJ’s, want wees eerlijk .. voor weinig geld kan je gewoon je plaatjes kwijt.

Een kleine heads-up!

IKEA recently announced that they are discontinuing their Expedit line of bookshelves—at least in Germany—and the news has sparked an intense reaction among German vinyl enthusiasts. For a generation now, Expedit has been the shelf of choice for record collectors, who don’t care to imagine life without the line. It seems to be the case that IKEA product lines are not specific to countries—if that’s true, then that probably means that IKEAs in America will also cease carrying the Expedit line soon, too.

The Kallax line has been announced as the replacement for Expedit. It is a close match to Expedit and will certainly do a fine job holding your LPs. However, if you already have Expedits in your home and need your next shelf to match, you’d better stock up now. The user “soundscope” on the 35hz.co.uk message forum pointed out that the sides are not nearly as thick. Even worse, a Facebook user on the “Rettet das Ikea Expedit Regal” suggested that Kallax has no 5×5 version, which Expedit does offer.
