I may pick this up tomorrow. My favorite record store, Permanent Records, got booted by their landlord in Greenpoint so they've moved deeper into Brooklyn. Going to take advantage of their back in business coupon for Segall.

Anyone used vinyldestination.com.au?

Their prices look great for new vinyl (most of the time under $30), and postage within aus is also great ($5 for the first LP, $2 for each subsequent one.) I made a wish list worth about $3k.

Had never heard of it, just had a look, most stuff is $30+... FlyLo's new one is $36. All for an Aus site selling cheaper vinyl but that sure as hell ain't it.

The Vinyl Thread

We must be searching different things - unforgettable fire remaster was $23 - it was $55 last I saw at JB. Most arctic monkeys albums were $27 or thereabouts. $45 at my local.

A year ago I saw a eBay auction for the 4 Achtung Baby singles on 12" vinyl. The seller was selling them as framed records.. Apparently purchased for that sole purpose and they were not even listened to. I won the auction for a reasonable $70 dollars. Which is great considering the single for Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses is worth more than the other three and used to sell for over $100 dollars on eBay. I had no desire to frame them. I just wanted to listen to them and file them away in my collection.

Ugh, people who pre-ordered the vinyl reissues of Modest Mouse's Lonesome Crowded West, and This is A Long Drive... received both already. I wish I wasn't broke.

Or had hindsight to pre order them months ago.

I am intrigued by listening to music on vinyl (never had the experience) and might be purchasing a record player, but wanted to know people's thoughts in general about whether it's worth the investment. I know all of the arguments that it sounds better, packaging and physical object is cool, etc. but now I've been reading articles that say there is no appreciable difference in sound, it's a hipster hobby, and that records are fragile and don't hold up well with repeated listens. I guess I might need a bit more convincing even though I am leaning toward getting it anyway.

Once you invest in a great system, speakers, all that fun stuff you really do get the benefits of listening to records over digitized music. Records hold up upon repeated listening. I have a 1959 copy of Miles Davis Kind of Blue that sounds stellar and it is my test record whenever I invest in a new piece of equipment for listening to records.

That's cool...I have a Kind of Blue on CD and I always say to myself that it must sound amazing on vinyl.

I can't tell the difference. But I do it anyway.
