A forgotten thread on vinyl, but informative enough to bump up here

Sharing knowledge is important so  All XP fellows benefit from people who spin LP everyday for living- Surely they are the man who keep clubbers happy. They are like the professional F1 driver- good to pick up some cue from them.

Go ahead and purchase your ideal Vinyl- Your current DAC is one of the  top league. My impression is below

Whoever get it from you -surely will know what they are getting it for. Don't wait- don't come everyday. Like me see it just grab if you can afford it- otherwise be contended with what is given now.

Still exploring, gotta learn before purchase. Will take sometime to make decision. I really likeit sound as compare to digital.

Thanks guys for the heads up . Now let's move on to Lp's what's the price like per album now, I see that they range from $40-$100 plus. Can't imagine what it'll cost me if I collect as many as what I spend on my Cds now  :-X :-X :- :-X

Thank again

The good news is that the newer reissues are sonically very good in itself. Available from $30 to $100+ depending on label, factory and number of records inside. You pay a hefry premium for 45 RPM, and audiophile manufacture like One Step. IMHO these are worth only if you really love the album and must have the best version to spin regularly.

Plenty of decent reissues so no need to hunt for costly first press or NOS unless it is for bragging rights. However, the reissues come in 180g and 200g which means that your shelves need to be strong to take the weight. As your collection grows, you will need a record cleaner sooner or later to clear away the inevitable fungus that strikes in our humid air.

Disc will rot after 10 years +- down the road. Vinyls can get scratches if never hander with cares but it will still sound great after many years.

And investing in newly issued vinyl (esp Mofi) can sometimes be better than stock investment.
Usually make profit, break even or lose a bit after if one decides to sell.

Sorry to hijack this thread. Can recommend some Mofi titles (preferably rock) that in your opinion, better sounding than the original pressed? I don't have much luck with them. Most Mofi LPs I have don't sound better than the original pressed.
