  1. I agree Discogs is pretty good. A lot of the LPs I buy don't have barcodes so I tend to find I still have to look things up anyway. I have found the Collectorz search works very well in the app which is what I require the most as I am often searching to see if I have some of the songs already on different compilations or other LPs. Discogs is of course free (Collectorz costs an annual subscription) and you can't beat the connection to the marketplace values.
  2. I have used Collectorz for a number of years. Yes it does cost however the advantage is that the software is regularly updated. Discogs is great too and has the added advantage of being able to provide a market value of your collection. I find the Collectorz app far superior to the Discogs app and this helps when I am out and about hunting for records. For people with large collections I think it is worth the investment. I am able to sync from my laptop to the apps so that my collection is always with me. It doesn't mean I avoid duplicates completely as sometimes the database is not as accurate as it should be but as your collection grows these things are unavoidable unless you have a lot of time, Hope that helps. I use the software version and the apps though I also have Music Connect as well (the cloud only option). The reason for this is for the odd occasion when I don't have internet access. Having your collection downloaded to your phone has proven very helpful on a number of occasions. Cheers Andrew
  3. I just use a record cleaner spray ‘Melody Mate’.
  4. I use this method. Spray a bit of record cleaner on the surface of the Magic Eraser. Lower gently. Repeat if stylus is very dirty. It works very well and is totally safe providing you follow the wise advice of audiofeline and never drag the needle across the Magic Eraser. Another tip: Make sure your supply of Magic Eraser is hidden as they are also great for cleaning bathroom tiles and other household chores and you don't want them back after that. They are cheap and I reuse mine until the surface becomes spotty with dirt although technically you can wash the dirt off but they are so cheap so I never bother.
  5. Hi Rodders I found this guide which was updated earlier this year. It seems finding record shops in Tokyo is not too hard.... :-) http://mostly-retro.com/2016/10/03/the-biggest-guide-to-tokyo-record-stores-on-the-internet/
  6. Yes like most things in 2018! Much better to collect the originals I reckon.
  7. Hi all Andrew here. I have been on this forum for a while lurking. Love all things vinyl and audiophile related. Pleased to meet you. Cheers Andrew aka soulsurvivor

  9. I haven't bought it as I already have all these albums. General consensus amongst those that do report that it is much better than the previous box of 70's to 90's albums released in 2010. Most people that don't have Voodoo Lounge from 1994, Bridges To Babylon from 1997 and A Bigger Bang from 2006 have been buying it as the cost of the original pressings were getting pricey. As far as sound quality that appears to have been improved over previous reissues but I would reserve my judgement until I heard the original pressings next to these reissues. It is a lovely box but with no added extras such as outtakes or bonus tracks I think they missed an opportunity with this one. Still a useful release for the reasons I mentioned.
