Not the place to sell your gently used items if you want a quick return. I took two bags of items at opening on a Thursday morning. By Monday morning of the following week I still had not received a call back. When I called I was told the items were still sitting on a shelf and it could be a few days before someone could get to it. I opted to pick my things up. Staff is friendly but not informative on the length of time it takes for a quote.
C D Source in Dallas – Yeah, this is a great cd store (of the few left). They have a great selection. I lived in Dallas for 9 years ('96 - '05), and they do have things you won't find anywhere else. However, they watch you from the second you come in the door, as if it were more important to make a dollar than to have a future artist accidentally get ahold of that track that inspires them to write something great at a cost of a couple of bucks to these douchebags.
Good CD store – You need to cash a paycheck before going here. It's a great place to spend a day and buy a couple hundred dollars worth of albums. The only drawback is that it's like a good breakfast diner without the good cup of coffee. There isn't very much vinyl and some of it's not very good. But other than that, it's a great place at a really good location.
This place is the bomb dot com, people – You can always find some great treasures here, as a good selection of used CDs is constantly coming in the door. The staff are all music lovers, are usually very friendly and have excellent recommendations. They pay a fair price for your used CDs and DVDs too, so bring them here to sell and NOT half-price books where you will be ripped off if you accept their offer. This DalTexCowboy dude who gave this place a one-star rating because the CD Source staff didn't grovel at his feet, call him promptly and buy every single one of his CDs is quite obviously a D-bag of the highest magnitude. This is a fun, funky store with its own quirky personality, something very, very rare in this town. I think it will continue to last because it is staffed by helpful, mature adults, unlike its competitor CD World who went down the tubes a while back. Keep going back and keep independent record stores alive in Big D.
ahuh – a few on the staff are respectful, but some of the others like inside jokez. made some great finds here though. found the Cars greatest hits and that protect ya neck promo single too. great place to make good finds. they have cds there.
Overall a decent place to get music – Great place to buy music. They have the cheapest prices for used CD's I've seen anywhere. The best deals are on the CD's with broken cases that are usually 2.99. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable on music.
I luv this store! – it was my first time in and this store has a great rap section i love it! plus some of the stuff is used too so yeah i got to listen to it before i bought it.
i went in to get the new eminem and that asian lady at the door found it in like a second. she helped me find lots of other stuff too. actually a lot of the staff was really nice and that blonde guy was cutay! LOL
i'll totally go back (:
Best Music Store in Dallas. Period. – CD Source is without a doubt the best place to find cd's in dallas. Forget major retailers such as best buy, CD Source's selection blows them out of the water. Honestly, its not even a comparison...and even if CD Source doesnt have the CD you want, they will special order it and have it in 2 to 3 days. The staff is also top notch, and they know a lot about good music. Each staff member has their unique taste and can provide knowledgeable reccomendations to true music fans. And make sure you talk to Pat when you go there as well. Shes the best employee a company could ever have and she will help you find anything you need in a matter of seconds. Simply put, CD source is a gem of a store in a city full of bogus chains and boring shopping malls.
Fun place to shop CD's at good value – I wandered in here about six months ago and was warmly greeted by the friendly lady I've come to know as Pat. At that time I had about 20 CD's. Now , thanks to the wonderful advise and service from the staff; Larry, Chuck, Andrew, Pat, George, and everyone else; I have over 200 CD's. Larry is the man. Anything you need to know about music or CD's or bands he speaks the truth. I love coming in and exchanging little pleasantries with Pat.. She's always smiling and wanting to know how was my day, and can she find something for me. I am saddened to see some of the mean reviews for the store and the staff! There are so few nice businesses left that are truly interested in their customers' needs and life. However, it is a business and they need to make a profit to stay in business. They are not your MOTHER. Some of the negative reviews seem to be sour grapes. The store can't buy every CD from every seller. If you don't take good care of them, or you're selling ones the store already has 10 copies of, they can't really be expected to purchase them from you. I'm just thankful places like this are still around! Look in the mirror. If you present a positive attitude and treat the employees like friends you'd like to know better, you can get the musical education of a lifetime, and have fun doing it. They have a few rules sure, every business has to have them. I'd rather have friends making the rules,than some huge faceless company like Best Buy or Target. Larry, Pat, and the gang are there to help you enjoy your hobby. If you fall on hard times they'll be there to help pay you back on some of your CD's if you need them to. Will Best Buy? Will Target?
Good luck and good hunting!

Disorganized, Incompetent, Uninviting - Will NOT Return – I decided to give CD Source a try to sell back some of my CDs. They don't call you once the offer is ready, they put your CDs out for sale BEFORE you accept there offer, and they are completely disorganized and incompetent. I had to call them to see if their offer was ready. It took at least five people five minutes to find their offer for my CDs. Once I found out that they would only purchase some of the CDs, I asked for them back as I want to get rid of the whole lot or nothing. They then had to go pull CDs off the sales floor and peel stickers off my CD jewel cases. I was quite offended that they would sell my CDs before I ever accepted their offer! The store is a dump, poorly lit and dirty. I know it is no discount retailer or chain, but you'd think they would have a little more pride in their business and clean up the place a little bit and make it more inviting. I've been in the store before, but never purchased anything as I've never found anything I was looking for.
Definitely will not visit this establishment again, nor would I recommend it to anyone looking to buy, sell, or trade CDs or DVDs.
