    BUying Assistance

    Discogs.com "notes section" per each specific release. Steve Hoffman forums. It's gonna take a bit of research for particular releases.
  2. I read that Bullmoose said this is a repress. Not rediscovered old stock.
  3. Let your ears decide.
  4. Maybe so. But you need to have all those titles lined up, negotiate the business side of it, remaster (some titles), deal with pressing plants (delays), etc. It is no small task.
  5. It's got to be a real struggle getting the rights to press these titles and pressing multiple exclusives month after month after month.

    The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)

    Tempted to get that Grateful Dead 5xLP collection from RSD BF 2017 for $75 shipped.
  7. What pressing is that Miles? Can you post a discogs link?
  8. Might just be me, but I think I say this for about every NB exclusive release.
  9. I was under the impression the original stampers might be faulty.
  10. Received my copy. Side A is pressed off-center. My tonearm definitely has some side to side movement, creating a bit of pitch shifting. Side B is less off-center than A, not terrible and listenable. I'd say it is an improvement over my black copy, but that's not saying much. Haven't gotten to C and D yet. Using a Rega RP40. Edited: listened to sides C and D. Disc is slightly warped, but not off-center. Overall, pressing is okay. Definitely not floored by it. I give it a B-. An upgrade over my current black copy though.

    General Headphones Thread

    AKG K702s have limited bass unless you have a massive headphone amp. The soundstage is huge, but overall sound can be dry with fatiguing high end. Grados tend to run bright as well. Have a quirky design, but do sound very good. I've had the SR60, 80, and 225s. V-moda makes some really durable and portable closed back headphones. Might want to look into them as well. I also recommend the Sennheiser HD650s. Nice comfort level, open soundstage, good build quality, and just a lush midrange. Little rolled off on the highs and good bass output. Less listening fatigue overall relative to the AKG K702 and any Grado model.
  12. How does it sound? Is it a good pressing?
  13. I'll sell my copy at cost after it arrives. Likely will be off-center and pressed like shit like the first pressing was. ;)
