I want to listen to the soundtrack now but my records and record player are out in the car with most of the rest of my crap. Youtube stuff will have to suffice

So... I just received a Porcupine Tree CD in the mail. Bought it from an amazon.com seller. It said brand new sealed but the price had been discounted from the regular price of 17 something to 12 bucks. I just opened the package. The 2 CDs and liner notes are in perfect condition but the jewel case is all busted in 3 or 4 different places. The 2 CD holder that is supposed to hinge from the middle of the case came off loose. I guess that's why it was discounted. Otherwise CDs and notes are in great condition.

Yo what record player do you have? I have a few records and I never listen to them cos I got no player! I've looked at Crosley players on ebay ranging from 70 to 100 bucks.

I almost always expect the jewel case to be irreperable when I buy cds off of amazon, and for the most part I don't care, as long as the linear notes are ok

Well... the thing is this seller never mentioned in the posting that the jewel case was broken! Not one word! Oh well.

Well mine just has a slot for a line in cable, which I can use to play my iPod on it. But I did see one at sears for the same price with an iPod dock on it (Couldn't get that one cause mom had a $50 gift card to Carson's so really the record player I got was $50 "cheaper")

You can buy empty jewel cases - I have a ton here for work
Zoots - the CD may have been fine, it may have been damaged in transit. Sometimes, no matter how well you pack CDs, they arrive cracked. We do our best to send stuff in good condition. If we see a sealed CD has a cracked case, we'll throw an extra one in the shipment.

Sorry about the bonehead who thought he was buying a CD when you clearly stated it was an LP bono_212. That sucks. His stupidity really shouldn't be your fault.

If it was sealed, is it possible that the case was broken in transit? I've bought lots of new cds and dvds online from Amazon or a Canadian chain, Chapters, and have received some of them with cracked cases, or more commonly, the inner tab thingy that holds the cd in place broken. I HATE that.

Ashley, does Amazon still allow users to rate sellers? I agree that the guy is being awfully petty, but you've gotta ask yourself if holding out on the return is worth getting negative feedback.

it's an ion record player, i got it from tower records a few years ago. i plays 33s, 45s, and 78s. not that i have any 78s to play on it! but still. it just hooks up to any stereo and you're good to go. i just needed...i think it's called an rca cable from radio shack? i'm not so good with names of cables, but i always know what they look like. the player itself was like $90.
