Numark M101 I wanted to buy a basic 2 channel mixer and the place I normally use in Glasgow was sold out. I went to DV247 and they had the same item "in stock" and for the same price. I had checked a couple of other places out too and they all offered next day delivery but I went for DV as I had heard they were supposed to be good. The package eventually turned up about 5 days later and it was not what I expected - it came all the way from Germany and it had a 2 pin EU style power supply... (read more)

I don't know why these guys don't have 5 stars. I have ordered from them before and they are fantastic. Just this week I emailed them some questions about their microphones and I got a very good response. I emailed the same questions to another website and have yet to hear back from them. (read more)

I bought a Traktor soundcard from DV, which developed a fault within three months of the purchase. DV would not refund or replace the item, in spite of their obligations under UK consumer legislation. In the end I was able to get a refund from my credit card company, no thanks to DV who were completely unhelpful. Also, when the item was originally purchased, their couriers DPD made a complete mess of the delivery. Grrrr I will not be shopping there again, and will stick with Andertons'... (read more)

I have received the worst customer experience with this company. I asked for them to cancel my order moments after it being made and they did not respond. I am now on my third email to their so called customer services! My bank account has been charged which has caused me to go overdrawn and I haven't even got the goods. This is the third compliant I've made to dv247 concerning orders. First one was because I'd ordered a few items and their website said they had them in stock which I found... (read more)

A friend and I ordered a mic each and an interface each on the same day in tow separate transactions from the website. For both of us it said both items were in stock, the website infant gave an exact amount they had in stock which was 3 or 4 of both items, however this was clearly wrong. We got next day delivery and were told we would receive a text or email when our orders would arrive, my friend got an email, I received nothing. Luckily I was in to sign for my order, but this was the... (read more)

I have a large band (12 piece) and we need a PA. (i'm in a pub band too, but i knew our PA requirements would be vastly different. As they are my local PA specialist i thought i'd speak to their 'expert'. I called last week, but the guy was off, and the chap that answered the phone didn't have a clue, so i called back. After asking to speak to somebody about a PA the bloke on the phone asked me a few questions and announced that i'd need to speak tp the PA man. I thought i'd already asked to... (read more)

I bought the headphones on a Saturday and it was shipped on Monday to Germany. After only 2 days it was deievered to my door. Excellent and fast service! I also received a separate email from them with an invoice, is if the hard copy is lost I can reprint it and have it for warranty purposes. It was the first time I ever bought anything from them, but will definitely visit their website more often now. A highly recommended shop. (read more)

Firstly they took my money and didn't note my order (over £1000 order!!!). I had to call up a week after to find out what was going on and they said my order had still not been shipped and that they would be sending out today. Didn't receive until another week and a half! Had to call up again.. Then when they did arrive they sent the wrong audio leads so had to wait for another. The box for one monitor was damaged. Inside the speakers looked used. Sent back for refund. Standard customer... (read more)

Poor customer service, purchased a head set mic via cheque some time ago now. Called up after a week and the cheque was still at their office, not even been taken to the bank. Got the goods eventually but took some time.
Also I purchased a guitar lead last year, ok, only a £12 purchase but the attitude of the staff was more or less what do you want, your disturbing me from doing nothing....... (read more)

Bought my new guitar from them. Much better than competitor GAK. Goods arrived undamaged, with an awesome special offer of a amp cable and guitar case for £0.02 (2p) and on time. I got all that I asked for and more from them. I would highly recommend. (read more)

After initial viewing on-line I used the store in High Barnet and visited in person. I experienced excellent service by very well informed and helpful staff. I wanted an electro acoustic guitar but was unsure as to what I should go for. I am not an accomplished guitarist. I talked through my requirements and budget with 'Andy'. I then tried out a few guitars that he recommended and I ended up choosing an Epiphone DR500ME. Had I spent a year searching on-line I could not have come up... (read more)

I ordered the items. Three days later i get the headphones but no controller. 2 days after that i get an email saying they don't have it in stock. Still no sign of it and no imformation. So canceled the order to get a refund and they have charged me for the FREE headphones without offering to take them back £72. Avoid these people like the plague. They will reck your plans or scam you out of money or both as in my case. Wish i would have read reviews on here before. (read more)

What a surprise the in stock item i ordered is NOT in stock! What self-respecting company takes orders placed in good will and takes immediate payment for an item that they dont have and can only "estimate" when they themselves will recieve the item? Very very poor practise, simply disgraceful. I suggest we all pay the extra couple of quid and and use an honest retailer. (read more)

I ordered some Virtual Instrument software from theses people as on there website it stated in the product details that delivery would only be 2-3 working days. However after ordering the software I was sent an email from them saying that the particular software that I had ordered was out of stock & that they had to order it from there suppliers witch could take up to three working days to complete. This to me was of no use what so ever as I needed the software ASAP. On the second day of... (read more)

Following on from problems with a previous order (early Jan 2010, DV are an absolute disgrace! THey don't understand what cust service is!
I was completely lied to, info was with held regarding stock & delivery. If this was an isolated incident I would understand, however, in less than 2 weeks these morons have yet again pulled the wool over my eyes & cost me hard with the loss of 2 working days as I could not fullfill my clients needs on the back of DV's faillings. I've been in this game... (read more)

Had a chase a little but overall a good experience.
My item was out of stock initially and they did a pretty good job of keeping me up to date with stock etc.
Would use them again.

bought a beautiful M-audio Keystation 88 ,b-stock, from this shop. My God,what a mistake. They did an amateurish packing job because the keyboard did not have the original packaging. Because of the bad packing,the courier damaged the last 2 keys by leaning the item,vertically,on one side.
You would think that Digital Village would avoid problems like these,by packing a 20 kg item professionally,but they didn't. Sad fact.
Even sadder,is the fact that their Return Department is run by people... (read more)
