  1. Starting a specific thread for Vinyl Record spinning My plan is to go through my record collection one by one and post as I go with a nice photo Hope all record ( darksiders ) will follow my lead and post on this new Vinyl / Record spinning thread So to kick it off I will post one of the very first albums I purchased - and I had to order it Since then I never got over King Crimson - still a top 3 favourite band Artist - King Crimson Album - Young Persons Guide TT - Garrard 401 Stylus - Stanton 981 LZS Tonearm - Transfi Terminator Let the fun begin on the Darkside
  2. Hey all, I'm heading down to the Bowral/Mittagong/Moss Vale area for the long weekend and was wondering if anyone knew of any good places to look for vinyl?
  3. Further information: This Georg Solti / Vienna Philharmonic Wagner Ring performance/recording is still regarded by many as the best on record, and no subsequent reissue even gets close to equalling these spectacularly good limited edition pressings by Decca UK. Released in 1970 as a limited special edition. 22 records in 5 boxes enclosed in a uniquely designed outer slipcase. At the time it was the highest priced record set on the market and sold out soon after release! I recall "Mr Rowe Street" (Sydney's most iconic classical record store owner) pointing to the "last unsold copy in Australia" and the following week it was gone. The boxes are now 50 years old and inevitably the outer cover and box spines have sustained minor degradation over that time, but remain in beautiful condition overall. I've conservatively classed them as VG+. Everything else ranges from NM to MINT condition!!! Most of the vinyl has NEVER been played. Each box has full libretto in German and English along with detailed synopsis of each opera as well as technical recording details. The full set weighs just under 12 kg before packing it up protectively for shipping, so allow at least 13 kg shipping weight. Note that I have access to much better insured interstate shipping rates than Australia Post. For instance estimate for fast door-to-door delivery to inner Melbourne OR even inner Perth suburbs from Sydney, including insurance, would be under $30! There is a similar-condition set (maybe not quite as good) on eBay for UK£330 (about AU$600) plus shipping (+$200 to Australia) plus GST. PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE Additional information from Discogs Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen 22 LP Decca Box Set Incredible 1970 UK TWENTY TWO stereo LP boxed set of the complete edition of Richard Wagner's four part opera, 'Der Ring des Nibelungen', also known as 'The Ring Cycle' featuring the four operas 'Das Rheingold','Die Walkure', 'Siegfried' and 'Gotterdammerung'. There is also a unique three record introduction to 'The Ring' set narrated by Deryck Cooke featuring excerpts from the four operas. Each opera is in its own separate wooden ended partition with full size libretto booklets containing synopsis & full transcription for the operas. The performance is THE classic version by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Georg Solti, a powerful orchestral drama, phenomenal performance and superb sound. The whole ensemble is enclosed in a very weighty carved wooden box with gilded front panel.

Includes liner notes by Bill Zehme. Digitally remastered by Lee Herschberg. Pressed in the Netherlands and sounds fantastic. For those whose favourite part of the legendary Sinatra/Count Basie LIVE AT THE SANDS album was Frank's lengthy comedic monologue, THE RAT PACK: LIVE AT THE SANDS will arrive like manna from hipster's heaven. The disc features an entire performance by the storied "rat pack" of the Chairman and his musical pals Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr., but most of the show is given over to shtick and banter. Fittingly, Sinatra gets the most straight-ahead musical time with a brace of sterling ballads whose appearance should delight hardcore fans. Fortunately, the humorous barbs passed around the stage for the bulk of the performance are extremely sharp and funny (if politically incorrect in the extreme). Taken as a comedy album with some stirring musical moments, this disc is a gem for those who revere the Rat Pack, as they are captured at the peak of their powers and popularity, exuding hipness from every pore. LIVE AT THE SANDS is a bona fide cultural artefact documenting one generation's apex of cool. $35 Alan Parsons Project – I Robot – 2LP LEGACY 2013 release 35th Anniversary Edition - BRAND NEW & SEALED. MOV pressing in a gatefold sleeve. Including an 8 page booklet with rare photos & liner notes by Alan Parsons, and 14 bonus tracks on the second disc. Lovely double album package. $45 Led Zeppelin - How The West Was Won (SUPER DELUXE EDITION) – 4LP, 3CD, DVD and Book – 2018 EU pressed Box Set. BRAND NEW & SEALED. 'How The West Was Won' highlights the best performances from Led Zeppelin’s legendary concerts at the Los Angeles Forum and Long Beach Arena on June 25 and 27, 1972. Standouts include a 25-plus minute version of 'Dazed And Confused' and a 21-minute medley based around 'Whole Lotta Love'. The performances also capture the band introducing songs from its then-unreleased album 'Houses Of The Holy', which would be released nine months later. The Super Deluxe Boxed Set contains: Remastered audio on three CDs and four 180-gram vinyl LPs. DVD of the album in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and PCM Stereo, plus photo gallery. High-def download card of all stereo audio content at 96kHz/24 bit. A 52 page book filled with rare and previously unpublished photos of the band at each of the concert locations, plus memorabilia and ephemera. High-quality print of the original album cover, the first 30,000 of which will be individually numbered. Goes for anywhere from $230-$245 online anywhere you care to check.

  10. Hi all, I am interested to hear if anyone has come across a DSP based active speaker that truly does a vinyl analog signal justice. I am not suggesting that I have an amazing set of ears but I can usually pick a lack of warmth and clinical objectivity from DSP filters especially those that are situated in active digital speakers. I really like listening to digital music through a digital speaker but there seems to be loss when trying to experience vinyl. Does anyone else have a similar experience? Can anyone recommend a digital speaker that does vinyl justice? thanks
  11. This review is somewhat of a hybrid review, being the component in question started off as somewhat of a mongrel, as many Linn LP12s are- an original afromasia plinth with the classic fluting, made in 1975. When I first purchased it, I took it to Audio Genesis in Sydney, where they performed budget priced upgrades to a late pre-cirkus bearing and subchassis, along with a new armboard and cable for the Basik arm which graced it. For some years I used a high output excel MC cartridge, and then an AT OC-9, and all was well, as I enjoyed purchasing second hand vinyl in the 1990s at cheap prices. After moving down south to Melbourne, it continued to make good music, with a steady diet of music from the 2000s, and the riches of the as yet sleepy used market. After having kids and spending lots of the past 15 years riding bikes, in the past 3-4 years, I decided that it was time to give the old girl a bit of love. I had purchased a few cartridges over the years, which given it was running through an ME-15 pre with an MC board, were all moving coil. AT PT-33 was a well priced favourite, which was superseded by an AT OC-9/mk3, and the Basik gave way to a Jelco 750D, with it's ability to swap head shells. The first big structural modification that I did to the table was a about 2 years ago, when I bought both a cirkus bearing and kore subchassis. This clearly made a difference to the sound of the deck, and the subchassis was much easier to set up, largely due to the fact the the old subchassis was slightly bent! The turntable retained a lot of the Linn rhythmic sound that keeps you listening, though the bottom end was tighter. I found that at times the detail in the high percussion was good, though it seemed to come and go a little. I also bought a trampolin 2 base, which I thought was an improvement on running it without a base, as I had done. Given I had given myself a little bit of a buzz before with the valhalla and its greater than mains voltage, and my kids were getting tall enough to reach it on the wall shelf, this was more a safety upgrade rather than a sound upgrade, though it definitely improved the looks of the deck. Another amateur structural mod that I did was to fit corner braces to the original plinth, and re-glue the corners, which did seem to tighten up the sound. This brings me to the subject of the current review... 2019 was a year of reduced spending and hard work, and towards the end of it, as a Christmas present, my partner suggested that I should think about getting one of those plinths that I had talked about after I saw them at the Hifi show. I had seen this sign with a few examples in the VAF room, and discussed them with Simon from VAF, who said that he and another bloke, Ben, were starting a business around turntable setup, maintenance and upgrades, and the plinths were part of that. No they weren't yet for sale, as they were needed to show some shops. I put thoughts of immediate purchases out of my mind, and thought about other things. Now that the opportunity came to purchase one, got into contact with Ben, through the website www.hifiguru.com.au . I checked out a few of the models they had on offer on the still pretty rudiimentary website, and really had my heart set on a red gum plinth with a fantastic wavy grain. Ben got back to me via email, and we messaged about what was available, and agreed that I would get the Red gum, along with a new Linn top plate. The cost of the plinth was about $1500, which is a little more than a stock Linn plinth, but much cheaper than importing a Woodsong plinth or Booplinth, which were crazy prices. It may seem a bit silly paying this much for the wood surround of a record player, but I reasoned that when I play a record, I listen, let my thoughts wander, and spend quite a lot of time looking at the turntable itself, so getting one that is just beautiful was not so silly. It took the better part of a month to go from agreeing to purchase to getting the plinth itself, due to christmas and holidays, and during that time, I took advantage of a sale at Tivoli hifi to pick up a lingo 4 at a good price. It just seemed that if I was going to update the plinth, the motor had to be done too. Come the end of January, and it was all coming together. I met Ben to pick up the plinth, and despite his offer to build up the player as part of the purchase, I really wanted to do it myself. The plinth looked even better in the flesh than I remembered, and certainly than in photos. The top plate was well set and the bolts were vertical. It was time to build. I had borrowed a set up jig and some tools, which make the whole shebang much easier. First up was removing the subplatter, bearing and tonearm from the old table, which was no problem at all. Then was the process of fitting the Lingo 4 into the new plinth, along with the aforementioned bits. All went fairly well, with no issues. Soon I had a table which was fully stocked with parts, just needing tuning. If any of you have set up the suspension of an LP12, it is not magic, but it does require a bit of futzing around after you have set the platter to level, at about the height of the plinth edge. After the requisite twisting of the spring grommets, and bouncing of the platter, I had achieved a good bounce with no side to side movement. After that I attached and dressed the tonearm cable, which took a little longer, with a bit more twisting and bouncing for good measure. It was ready for the base to be reinstalled (a tight fit) and to be placed on the wall shelf (essential for any turntable in a house with floorboards, in my opinion). The finished product looks fantastic- a definite step up from the old girl who has travelled so far with me. It sounds fantastic, retaining that rhythmic coherence that LP12's are famous for, but what the Plinth/Lingo 4 add is a little more air in the upper frequencies- cymbals sound a bit more like they should, with less tizz, and a bit more separation of instruments. The biggest change to my ears has been the increased definition of bass guitar, bass drum, and the bottom end in general. It comes across as stronger, but without the kind of amiable boominess that the older versions of the deck have had. I have found that the change has been for the better with all the styles of music that I play, from rock/pop/metal, to jazz and classical. Overall this renovation of my LP12 has been just what I wanted- bringing a bit more audiophile into the musical fun of the original, without losing any of it. For the moment I am just enjoying it, currently listening regularly, with no thoughts of what comes next. Justin

  13. Hey Guys. I'm interested in which records you listen to with the most regularity, especially all you well known members, but encouraging newcomers who may become well known in time Even as I post regularly, I don't post everything I listen to and over time our more often played choices may not be apparent. Feel free to elaborate on your choices to your hearts content, we all have a story when it comes to our favourite records and bands. Some of you know I like to ramble on a bit sometimes. Keeping it exclusively vinyl with different threads for other formats. Maybe two lists each with three albums... 1. Top 3 giving you the most delight at present. 2. Top 3 on highest rotation in collection. I've been buying some new vinyl recently. When I was young all records sounded bloody unreal. We had a nice Pioneer stereo and it rocked. When my brother and I moved into a flat, he had a very nice system too. After joining this forum around 3 years ago, my ears have certainly become a lot more critical and quite a few of my records sound pretty ordinary, compared with others that are commonly accepted as great sounding records i.e. Roxy Music's 'Avalon'. I now have some awesome sounding vinyl, but I'm looking for better versions of some of my favourite albums. The prime example is Black Sabbath's 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath'. I have had two, second hand, Aust. pressings that were in fair condition, and currently the Earmark reissue which is just woeful. One of my top three albums and I don't listen to vinyl - shame on me! I'm on the hunt for the Rhino Records reissue. Right now I listen to great sounding records. My top 3 spinners right now are - 1. Muse 'Origin of Symmetry' The only Muse album I have on vinyl, picked up at JB HiFi soon after release. I have most of their CD's and a couple of DVD's, saw them at Riverstage in Brisbane around 2009(?) Great sounding record and Muse in strong form. 2. The Angels 'Two Minute Warning' I've only had this about two weeks but it's been getting a workout. The sound is as I remember from an old friend's copy - excellent. The band I have seen the most in my life. This album was released as I was finishing year 12 and beginning to go to licenced gigs. Live music and Aussie pub rock were in fine form. I've always been happy with the CD, but recently added to my essential vinyl supply. 3. Alkaloid 'Liquid Anatomy' Progressive, Technical Death Metal from Germany. You'll see from my next top 3 list that Metal is normally my thing. My first gig was Maiden's 'The Beast on the Road'. I listen to many styles of music but I always return to Metal. Very impressed with the all round quality of this release. My Top 3 records ever in rotation are... 1. KISS 'Dynasty' The first record I ever bought myself. I have a lovely U.S. promo copy that sounds awesome. My original Aussie copy was played to death. It's No.1 on the list because it was the first. I've never really liked 'I was Made for Lovin' You' & 'Sure Know Something', but the rest of the album rocks. For me it is the sound of New York from that time, I have strong, positive emotional connections to the record itself and the music. 2. Black Sabbath 'Mob Rules' When I first got back into records around three years ago, this was the first album I replaced, with a second NM Aussie pressing. I was in year 8 when this was released, it copped a flogging on our stereo and I especially liked it through the headphones. Another record that transports me back every time it spins. It's always a toss up between this and 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath', and as I don't currently listen to that on vinyl it can't be listed. 3. Led Zeppelin 'IV' I have had three Aussie pressings and the Jimmy Page remaster. Have always loved this classic record and it transports me to a magical, medieval world. There are no rules - Enjoy -

  15. A very Black Friday: how the fetish for vinyl is sending prices soaring, a mainstream article on this issue... "...there’s a diehard group of consumers who will continue to support this state of affairs. It’ll never go away because there’s always a market for it – it’s been so over-fetishised that it’s part of the culture now. That’s why the majors have adopted some of these silly pricing policies.”
  16. Item: Sansui SR-212 Vintage 70s Turntable - Japan - Professionally Restored & Upgraded Location: Sydney Price: $450, open to reasonable offers Item Condition: Very Good, recently serviced/restored/upgraded and working. Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I recently inherited this Sansui SR-212 turntable , which is of 1970s vintage and is made in Japan. The turntable employs a unique multiple suspension/insulation system to eliminate howling ( it has a suspended sub-chassis design). The deck is in really nice condition, no major blemishes to speak of. Even the lid is in good condition, no cracks and the hinges also appear to be working fine. It did need some minor repair work to get it up and running, so I engaged Chris from Spin Doctor Music here in Sydney to repair/restore the deck for me which he did very well. In the process the following upgrades were also made to the deck : Brand new drive belt Brand new Jelco HS-25 cartridge shell was purchased and installed onto the tonearm Brand new Ortofon 2M Silver MM phono cartridge was purchased, installed and aligned Brand new AUS power cord was installed Initially I thought I might use this Sansui TT in a second system, but It turns out that I won't be making use of it after all. So , it's up for sale now to someone who can make use of it. Everything is in good working order, including the arm cueing and auto-return mechanism. Platter speed has been tested by Spin Doctor Music and is accurate and stable at both 33.1/3 and 45 speeds. Some more info and general specs on this turntable are available here: https://www.vinylengine.com/library/sansui/sr-212.shtml Note of course that this one has the Ortofon 2M Silver cart and Jelco headshell upgrades. The Ortofon 2M Silver seems to sit between the 2M Blue and the 2M Bronze in the Ortofon 2M lineup. I will also provide the original headshell and also the (probably very worn out) original SC-37 IM cartridge. I don’t have any boxes or packaging for the deck, so I would prefer local pickup from Sydney. I've also got the original operation manual for it. The new Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge and Jelco HS-25 headshell together alone would cost over $400 RRP. Buyer will need to add their own RCA-RCA phono cable to connect the deck to an amp/phono stage. Local pickup Sydney only. COD payment is easiest, or happy to receive a bank/BSB or PayPal Friends transfer before pickup.

  17. COMPLETED! see final page... Thank you all 🙏 R U OK? This raffle seeks to support one of our own, a charity giving drive by respected not-for-profit, The Wayside Chapel - Sydney "...Today is R U OK? Day and for the occasion, all Wayside staff across both locations are going to come together to celebrate each other and talk about how we are doing. There will be a few fun activities in store for them, including a pie-tasting contest. News has come through this week of a sports-star that has died in a “single car accident”. He was an unofficial campaigner for men’s mental health and I will always remember when he talked about his struggles. As a young man he once shared they had always been told to forget their emotions and suck it up, and later he realised that when we struggle it is important to take our hand and stick it up, and say, “I’m not going so well”. Our lives are a journey and not an event, so we will re-commit to walking and talking together as we care for all those who fall by the Wayside. We will remind ourselves that we don’t need anyone to be an expert, we just have to be present enough to look someone in the eyes, ask how they are and listen. We know that when any of us walk away feeling met rather than worked on, then positive action is a likely outcome...."

  18. Item: Records Location: Rowville, Melbourne Price: free Item Condition: varying - listed below Reason for selling: Just want them gone Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: taken Triptykon - Eparistera Daimones has some damage to the front cover (scratches or something, that's how I got it and why I asked for a replacement). It also has a small pressing defect, on side B I think it was, resulting in 15-20 seconds or so of a repeated click or pop each rotation. Sounds good otherwise. taken Candlemass - Nightfall only reason I'm getting rid of this is I've replaced it with an '88 Metal Blade pressing as I prefer the original mix and master. It's near mint, nothing wrong with it, giving it away as nobody has wanted to buy it from me. taken The Dynospectrum - Self titled Arrived banged up in the mail, was sent a replacement so I don't need this one. Haven't listened to this copy but my replacement sounds immaculate and looks great in the black and white mix. taken Deltron 3030 - self titled I just wasn't very happy with this copy I received and am probably going to settle for the CD version. It's sibilant and noisy in places for me, mostly side A and D, even after cleaning. Maybe it'll work better for you, no harm in trying it for free. Pick up from Rowville would be strongly preferred, but if somebody wants to cover shipping costs I could do so if there's no other bites. I could provide pics of specific things you want to see if needed. Photos:

Pretty much brand new. Only a few months old. Played once or twice. Solid pressing for the price. Vibraphone based jazz at its finest. $22 Chick Corea - The Song of SInging (Stereo) - Blue Note - Japanese Toshiba Pressing 1985 (BST84353) NM/NM. Pretty much in new condition, with shrink and hype sticker still present. Would be hard to find in this condition. Played once or twice only. Avant garde for the hardcore jazz lovers. $25 Miles Davis - Miles of Jazz (Mono) - Japan Mercury 1975 (BT-5011) VG/NM. Nice compilation.

Featuring the great Billy Cobham on drums. Actually more like a prog-rock album IMHO. Electric guitar, violin, synth-driven odd time signature proggy goodness. Absolutely clean pressing, vinyl itself looks like new. Some clicks and pops through quieter passages, which would likely disappear with a good ultrasonic clean. Some creasing of the corners. $30 Miles Davis - Vol 2 (Stereo) - Blue Note - US 2015 BN75 reissue LP (BLP1502) VG+/NM. Pretty much brand new. Only a few months old. Played once or twice. Solid pressing for the price. Digital source I believe. VG grading as there is a slight crease at top right corner (shipped to me like this).

This record sounds amazing; warm, rich, full analogue tone. Glossy black vinyl that plays beautifully without noise except some light pops/clicks audible only between tracks. Sleeve shows its age with some yellowing, and minor shelf wear only. King pressings are well known for their immaculate, quiet vinyl and amazing sound quality. Do some research and you’ll find their prices are steadily rising. This version in particular (FRP 5-2) is exceedingly rare, you wont even find it on Discogs. This album is a Jazz masterpiece, and no collection would be complete without it. Heres your chance at obtaining a pristine rare Japanese repress. $OLD ⭐Art Blakey Quintet - A Night At Birdland Vol 1 (Mono) - Blue Note - Japanese King pressing 1978 (GXK-8099M) VG+/NM (no OBI, with liner notes in Japanese).

Clifford Brown and Max Roach. Two legends, in a studio, riffing off each other. Some mind blowing chops on this one. Shiny vinyl looks mint, but plays with a little noise intermittently, hence the VG rating. $OLD Charles Mingus - Mingus Dynasty (Stereo) - Japan CBS/Sony 1973 (SOPZ 28) NM/NM (no OBI, with inner sleeve and liner notes). Sleeve is still in shrink. A good example of post bop done right. Mingus was a phenomenal double bassist, and is supported by a stellar lineup here. $OLD ⭐The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Time Out (Stereo) - Japan CBS/Sony 1974 (SOPM150) VG/VG+ (no OBI, with insert). A classic album, accessible cool jazz at its finest. Age-related brown staining of cover on front and back, and minor creasing at corners (see pics). Vinyl looks clean and glossy, with some fine, non feel-able scratches. Plays well with no skips. Some crackles and pops, only audible through quieter/silent passages. $OLD The Dave Brubeck Quartet - 25th Anniversary Reunion (Stereo) - Japan Horizon/King 1977 (GP3514) NM/NM. Beautiful gatefold sleeve, in close to new condition. Vinyl looks glossy and new. Quiet pressing. Really well recorded/mastered live concert with the quartet playing the classics. $OLD ⭐John Coltrane - Live at the Village Vanguard Again! (Stereo) - Impulse! - US 1968 (AS9124) NM/NM. Again, thick and glossy gatefold sleeve, in close to new condition. Vinyl looks waxy and new, and plays through with no noise. Sounds like you’re there with the audience, very well recorded live performance. Overall amazing condition. $OLD Sonny Clark - Cool Struttin' (Stereo) - Blue Note - Europe DOL 2015 (DOL834H) NM/NM. In close to new condition. Only played once. Clean, flat, thick 180g wax. Yes its a modern digital transfer, but the price reflects this. No better gateway drug into Blue Note goodness. Amazing hard bop, one of my favourites. $OLD Sonny Rollins Quartet - Tenor Madness (Stereo) - Europe DOL 2015 (DOL871H) NM/NM. In close to new condition. Only played once. Again, a digital transfer, but so affordable. Monster album for the hard bop tenor sax fan. $OLD Terumasa Hino - Trans-blue (Stereo) - Japan CBS/Sony 1985 (28AH 1835) NM/NM. Lovely group of jazz standards, performed with the backing of a full set of strings. Vinyl looks clean, and plays with no issue. $OLD Chaka Khan / Freddie Hubbard / Joe Henderson / Chick Corea / Stanley Clarke / Lenny White - Echoes of an Era (Stereo) - Japan Elektra 1982 (P-11138) VG/NM. What a line up! Amazing vocal jazz. Chaka Khan is a powerhouse. Fingerprints/marks on the cover (more obvious against the gold). Gatefold. Glossy clean vinyl otherwise. $OLD If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. I actually have quite a few more to sell, so keep an eye out for more posts from me this week! Photos:

  21. I recently bought a new record on eBay that has a fair bit of surface noise and a repeated click across the majority of side A. I gave it a glue clean to no avail, it sounds identical, so it's fair to say that I'm very dissatisfied with it; particularly since the comments on discogs about this pressing were quite positive, a couple of people specifically mentioning it as being low noise. The thing is, it would pass as NM to a visual inspection, but I wouldn't feel confident grading it anything higher than VG in listening. Do I contact my eBay seller for a refund or replacement? I do buy a lot of CDs and records from them and this is the first time I think I've been dissatisfied with what I've received. Do I chase it up with the label instead, seeing as it's not really the seller's fault? Paying $36 for a new record only for it to sound crap isn't right. My only reservation is I don't have a way of demonstrating it.

Item: Stanton 680 EE Cartridge Location: Rowville, Melbourne Price: $65 Item Condition: Used and working Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This cartridge came with a turntable that I recently bought from @Prana69 who can vouch for it's working condition.

  24. Item: 60’s-70’s Rock Vinyl Collection (selling 80 LP’s as single lot) Location: Newcastle Price: $800 negotiable Item Condition: good, see below Reason for selling: downsizing Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, bank transfer Extra Info: This diverse collection of rock LPs contains selections from the 1960’s and 1970’s. The photographs below show the entire set. Most of the recordings are US pressings. The LPs have come from various sources and were carefully selected for cleanliness and skip-free playability. The collection has been well maintained using a wet solution vacuum cleaning machine. As expected, surface (groove) noise varies from record to record. A few are scratchy. In most cases it is barely noticeable, and often non-existent. Album jackets are well preserved, for the most part. Many original inner sleeves have been replaced with better sleeves and posters and similar inserts have been discarded. The set is being sold for $10 per album. Some are worth more, some are worth less, so it balances out. In the end, this is good value for clean, well-maintained vinyl. Shipping to any Australian destination is possible at buyer’s cost. The records will be safely packed in cartons. Interested parties near Newcastle are welcome to inspect the collection at residence.

Item: Vinyl LP Collection (single lot, 336 LPs) Location: Newcastle Price: $2900 Item Condition: well maintained, see below Reason for selling: downsizing Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfer Extra Info: This diverse collection of LPs represents much of the very best vinyl from the late 1950’s up to the 1980’s. Most are from the 1960’s. The photographs below show selected albums to give an indication of the type of music that comprises the collection which includes pop, rock, jazz, folk, new age, country and classical. Most of the recordings are US pressings. There are many RCA’s including some classical LM’s. The LPs have come from various sources and were carefully selected for cleanliness and skip-free playability. The collection has been well maintained using a wet solution vacuum cleaning machine. As expected, surface (groove) noise varies from record to record. A few are scratchy. In most cases it is barely noticeable, and often non-existent. Album jackets are well preserved, for the most part. Many original inner sleeves have been replaced with better sleeves and posters and similar inserts have been discarded. The entire set of 336 LPs is being sold as a lot only. The $2900 asking price has been set to bring the price per album to well under $10, assuming that many of the albums are worth more than that, and many are worth less than that. In the end this is a very good price for such a large lot of good quality vinyl. This collection has been well looked after and needs a good home. Shipping to any Australian destination is possible at buyer’s cost. The records will be safely packed in several cartons. Interested parties near Newcastle are welcome to inspect the collection at residence. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
