Aaaaaaah! Awful decision.
I've got a couple, thankfully (the big ones and a little 4 squares one), and they're nowhere near full of vinyl yet.
We use it as the main shelving unit in our living room though and my girlfriend hates it. Will be a shame to see them go.
I just don't think you get a better shelving option for records. The anal me is going to hate to see different shelves for my collection.
Some fucker wants us all to have shitty belt drive decks and records all over our floors. I'd only just started getting my records in order on some of these and was hoping to grab another soon, I best be quick, they're gonna go quick with this news.
"In taking the Expedit out of rotation, IKEA have also unveiled a substitute of similar proportions known simply as ‘Kallax’, which will store your records with similar efficiency"
so what's the problem?
but seems a silly move, unless the new ones are the same, in which case this isn't really a thing.
mutual friend crying about this:
The smaller panels are meant to be the uprights to keep it stable.
or at least been put on it's side instead of the right way up
Record collectors care more about how their collection looks in its (matching) shelving units than you'd have thought shocker.
they're cheapo looking fake wood vinyl covered plywood things with shitty looking paper sleeve and cardboard spined whitle label dance classics on, that shit isn't going to make any room look good. Just a really easy to get, strong enough cheap shelf that works so well for records, there really is a hatter for everything haha.
I'm just playing, don't worry. I've got them too - everybody does!
I'm just showing off I have a shelf full of white label dance classics like I do in every thread on here.
They're being replaced by something that will be everything you say above. It just won't match.
can i collect my indie points at a local Ikea?
No, they're changing the design. You'll have to wait.
BUT IT STILL WON'T BE THE SAME
BUT THEY WONT BE THE SAME
