Does Madrid have any stores such as Amoeba or Rasputin where one can buy cheap used CDs?

Hi gobears! Did you ever find any places which sell used CDs? I'd LOVE to find such places here in Madrid but I don't think I've ever seen one. Sadly, many people prefer to buy illegal, pirated copies of questionable quality on the street.

Saludos, MadridMan

This is one of those postings from someone who doesn't pay much attention to addresses, but here goes. Start at Puerta del Sol walking west down c/ Arenal. Go three blocks on your right to c/ de las Hileras and turn right. The store is on the right (east) side of the street. They have thousands of used CD's, with original (opened)packaging. The big drawback is there is only marginal organization to it, you need to look at every single CD! I have purchased many CD's there over the years of all musical styles.

Warning-These directions were done from memory, using a map of Madrid (something I seldom use when there) It may be a block east or west although I am sure it is to the right off Arenal. I will correct if necessary when I am there next month.

Not a clue. But it's the only used CD shop there.

I KNOW THAT PLACE!!! (no idea what it's called though) But I'd never been inside and didn't know they sold USED CDs.

And now that I've got my head thinking in that direction I NOW remember ANOTHER used CD/DVD/Record shop in that same area. Here goes MY directions, no name of store, and no address (but I'll add it here in the next few days when I'm downtown next time)...

If you go in the SAME direction on Calle Arenal, starting at the Puerta del Sol and heading WEST towards OPERA, you go about 2/3 down the street and take a LEFT heading uphill slightly. On the right side of the street there's the shop. I recall that at first glance at the sign it almost appears to be a SEX SHOP or something but it's not. I bought some used DVDs there in the last year.

Saludos, MadridMan

The place on Arenal is called Yunke. It's on the corner of c/Hileras, I believe.

I walked by these places last Friday night. Here they are:

DISCOS YUNKE
Calle Arenal, 20

and maybe 30 meters away at the very nearby intersection is...

DISCOS KRISTEL (one-time location of DISCOS YUNKE)
Calle Bordadores, 11

Put their addresses in Google Maps to find them. smile

Saludos, MadridMan

UPDATE: Yesterday I walked by the aforementioned DISCOS KRISTEL on Calle Bordadores, 11 (just barely off of Calle de Arenal) and IT SEEMS it's closed for good, with the white paint covering the windows and everything. I peeked in and could see all kinds of shelving strewn about. The outside sign is still hanging there so maybe, if we're lucky, they're just going through a re-decorating period or something.

Discos Yunke is still open, however.

Saludos, MadridMan
