Yeah they are few bucks more, but honestly in the 3 short years I've been collecting Newbury has had the best customer experience. I can't tell you how many time I've ordered from other distros with no idea when the order is shipping, I get no communication as to when it's shipping, the shipping label is printed 2 weeks before the actual shipping date, and then it takes 2 weeks to get to me. Or I order a something with a ship date a month or two out that becomes 6-8 months out with no update.
It also seems like they aren't scared of having some inventory on hand as they order plenty of stock on pre-orders that don't sell out in 25 seconds and the site doesn't immediately crash every time a popular pressing goes live. I think at minimum Newbury is very good at selling vinyl.
