  1. Deluxe edition of the new Pixies album ‘Beneath the Eyrie’. Contains studio album, an LP of demo tracks, CD, booklet and a 7” single. Impressed with the quality of this boxset.
  2. Received the replacement record. In the end my RCM was able to clear up LP2 and there is no audible damage. The replacement vinyl wasn’t pristine, but it plays fine. Now awaiting new sleeves. I wasn’t asked to send anything back and MOFI are eating the shipping costs. From comments across forums these issues aren’t rare, so it must be eating into MOFI’s profitability.
  3. Looks like one hell of a cartridge. Hope it sings for you.
  4. I've used an osage brush for a while and it does the trick
  5. Just yesterday I received a shipping notice from Music Direct for the replacements. Only recently realised there’s a business connection between MOFI and Music Direct. Apparently Music Direct bought MOFI’s assets in 2001 post bankruptcy.
  6. Lately I’ve purchased more original pressings than reissues, and in the last six months I’ve struck out a lot on Discogs. Seeking VG+ or better, I’ve experienced more than a 50% failure rate. I only choose sellers with great feedback, and more importantly (IMO) those that provide detailed descriptions. For example, today I received a record described as NM, which had lead - in damage on all four sides, and a split cover. This could just be the odds balancing (my early Discogs experiences were positive), or the vinyl craze causing more sellers to be careless.
  7. Speakers Corner pressing of The Alan Parsons Project ‘Turn of a Friendly Card’. Stunning dynamics and easily trounces my original pressing. https://www.discogs.com/The-Alan-Parsons-Project-The-Turn-Of-A-Friendly-Card/release/2989200
  8. At my local record store last week grabbing some orders, and the owner had the unenviable job of calling customers and letting them know, that as their entire allocation of Fear Inoculum was cancelled, they couldn't fulfil orders. Ouch. Lucky he wasn't lynched !
  9. @furtherpale - thanks. I’ve spun the undamaged vinyl and it sounds fantastic and beats out the 33 1/3 MOFI pressing.
  10. Based on other crappy pressings I’ve bought, I’m suspecting employee 1600 is moonlighting at a few record companies !
  11. MOFI promptly responded and agreed to send replacement sleeves and vinyl at no charge. This is the result I was looking for, and hopefully the replacements are in decent shape.
  12. Cool that your copy is in good nick. I spun it today and it’s a great recording.
  13. Yep, the usual MOFI sleeves. The boxes are packed well and sealed, but the QC clearly isn’t up to scratch. Apparently they’re pressed at RTI.
  14. Number is 1347. I also noticed mine shipped a good week later than US residents’ copies.
  15. I’ve missed out on a couple of MOFI titles when ordering locally. Given the run for these that probably wasn’t an issue, however I was also hoping to get a low number copy. Not that that happened either. Lol.
  16. Sent them a blunt email with photos and requested a replacement. See what happens.
  17. Ordered directly from MOFI.
  18. Today I received my MOFI one step of ‘Blood on the Tracks’. The covers are scufffed and the vinyl looks like something from a $2 dollar bin. With shipping, this is around a AU$250 purchase. My RCM sorted the smudges and detritus but damage to the vinyl remains, and it’s audible. While the pressing is outstanding, it doesn’t make up for the appalling quality control. And this isn’t my first rodeo with faulty MOFI products. Not happy Jan !
  19. Placed an order for three LPs yesterday, and shipping was quoted at US$71. So their postage fees have definitely increased. I’ll now look at a freight forwarder.
  20. I see in one of your photos (I assume it's stock given the watermark), it identifies the model on the back plate of the PSU. So maybe check there. Cheers.
  21. Lovely phono stage. Is this the MKII edition of The Groove ?
  22. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Live Anthology. Seven discs of career - spanning live recordings. Released in 2009, was OOP and repressed last year.
  23. I've heard good things about the Groovewasher system but never tried it
  24. I've found their packing and service consistent. However, if the order is fulfilled by a third party Amazon seller then it's a dice roll.
