I colect vinyl too, tonnes of places online, pressings thesedays are a little hit and miss but still prefer it to any other format.

What are peoples set ups like?

Mine is wall mounted and I have a clearaudio concept, not the best looker but its a nice turntable.

Big passion for vinyl here. I have not got all mine up on discog yet but I am working on it.

Amazon, HMV, norman, rockbox, Banquet, Boomkat, Juno, Chemical, Jumbo, Uvinyl, What and of course direct from the artist. One of the first three are usually cheapest but Juno can also be cheap. It does pay to shop around.

Yeah there's plenty of places order online. Depending what you're after look up some distros and label sites, you can also find some good out of press records on ebay.

My old boys got an absolute shedload of Dylan / Springsteen / Stones vinyl hiding behind our old record player downstairs, along with foreign newspapers from the 70s, 80s etc when he saw acts abroad in places like Toronto / Hong Kong.

Had a gander at what else he had (out of interest) the other day and there was a copy of Whirlpool by Chapterhouse in there, great effort.

How much does he want for 'em?

Just spotted this, so I thought I'd add a bit.

I have a Linn LP12 which I've had since 1981. It has Linn Klyde cartridge and Akito tonearm.

I have been collecting since the 60's so I have a few nice albums. nearly all them were UK pressed so are heavier that US or European records were. I have a couple of mono Beatles Albums, half speed mastered Bat Out of Hell, Crime of the Century and Year of The Cat.

Nice, I've got a huge list of vinyl wants.....wish they werent so expensive I always buy new as 2nd hand can be dodgy as most people seen unable to class the condition correctly.

Dont know if you guys have come across this site http://www.beatdelete.com/

Lists out of press records. You can 'vote' by buying a copy of an album. When it gets enough votes, it gets a repress and you dont get charged until they dispatch it.

Not everybodys tastes but its a great idea.

'Voted' for Bonobo, Roots Manuva and Dan le Sac

I seen this the other day.

Can't believe it's that hard to get the Freeze i.o.u. song though. See it in almost all charity shops I visit, Why would it need repressing??

£10 for the caribou LP's & CD's sounds great value to me :thumbup: Gonna get my order in

Nice.

Had to renew my house insurance...contents include my record collection, I had to have a clause put into the policy due to the valuation of my collection, means my insurance will go up, it wasnt worth having a low estimate its took me 30 years to build up so a little more on my premium is needed.

I guess thats the advantage of having your collection on an ipod...lol...although I will never understand how people can buy something like music and not physically have it.
