A few observations on vinyl

Postby callen24 » Fri Nov 30, 2018 12:04 pm

1. it does vary but lots of new vinyl sound awful until cleaned by a machine. This is a bad thing because people could think vinyl sounds poor. This is why s/h, though not the value it was, is my preferred way because all the better shops clean their stock well. I’m thinking the albums i got from MOORGATE

2. lots of mid late 80s is cheap thin vinyl but can sound brilliant - i guess this is because good recording equipment, techinicans etc were available in a way that they weren’t in previous decades eg yellow moon by neville brothers

180g is a marketing tool. I've got some great sounding thin records. It should reduce the chance of warping but quality control at most modern pressing plants is pretty poor so they're often warped fresh out of the sleeve. It's unusual to buy a completely silent pressing too.
