Aka is competing with the likes of Tower and, in my opinion, they kick arse. Located in Olde City, this little joint is a real gem. If I am not able to find what I want, they are able to get it for me. They have a wide selection of new and used music and there is generally something cool playing while you shop. I have sold some cd's and they give a fair price -- store credit or cash. The prices are reasonable which is commendable for a non retail giant.
