Do many of you buy vinyl through discogs.

 

I have done so, occasionally.

 

But most of what I buy comes from:

  • bricks & mortar stores in Melbourne
  • Acoustic Sounds
  • Audiophileusa.

Now and then. I generally buy stuff off SNA Classifieds and even though it might not be cheap, the end result is good.

Yeah.

Keep in mind it is lots of different sellers not a single shop.

Thus expect variations of experience.

I usually avoid sellers from Russia in most areas where I buy things - is this a good rule for Discogs as well? 

Or just go off buyer reviews?

I've bought a couple of things from there one was rated VG but looked like it had been cleaned with steel wool the postage costs made it prohibitive to return. I contacted the seller who never replied. The other purchase was fantastic.

How much should I risk on unseen items I'm looking at buying 1 lp for $200 plus postage from the states.

Have not been inclined to buy from Russia but got a record recently through Discogs and valve tubes on ebay and it was all good.
