Hey guys, I recently got into vinyl a few months ago and I have made a few purchases of old and new LP's. However I have found that most new records that I buy have problems and I end up taking them back. The weird thing is that they have all come from JB Hifi Indooroopilly. I have bought Fleetwood Mac - Rumours (warped), Purity Ring - Another Eternity (looks like a spill on one side, a song on B side has really bad surface noise. I haven't taken it back yet), David Bowie - Nothing Has Changed (a scratch over Starman that would make it click). I have seen a few covers with split seems and bent cases being sold there as well. Has anyone else had any similar experiences? I have bought new about 5 times with no issues, yet that JB Hifi store is consistently bad.
Also where is your go to place for buying new and second hand records.
