  1. Anybody else get their standard black copies yet? Mine has little bubbles and imperfections all over that make it skip and pop like a bowl of rice crispies. I ran it through my RCM to no avail
  2. I honestly couldnt tell you. I was roaming the internet trying to find something that seemed sturdy. Actually stumbled upon this on Craigslist for $50. I think I had found some decent stuff I had contemplated buying on Wayfair.com. Just search "audio rack" Thanks dude, appreciate it.

    Got the same impression last time I saw them. They seem to mail it in these days. JD seems to have changed the vocal delivery on a lot of the older songs, to the point some are almost unrecognizable.

    I will have to check that place out the next time I'm in London. Looks killer. ....as for crucial E Wiz albums. I think the most acclaimed are Dopethrone and Come My Fanatics. If you ask around though you'd get differing answers from a lot of people. Personally I love the S/T and Come My Fanatics. We Live would be my number 3 choice.
  5. I spent hours going through this thread along with one on AudioKarma trying to get ideas on how I wanted the room to look. Super happy with the white shelves and dark wall. Shelves pop along with the trim. Currently building a custom coffee table to match. Once that's done I can order a giant area rug to help with a sound a little bit. Thanks dude. When I unpacked everything I only had the speaker wire from my last set-up in a much, MUCH smaller room, so they have to go there for now until I buy new wire. Plus, Im waiting until I have my giant area rug and coffee table done before I start re-arranging stuff again. The room is an odd shape which doesn't help, not to mention all of the glass from the frames isn't exactly sound friendly either. It's a work in progress for sure. You're collection is amazing btw dude.

    What did they want for that EW? Does it still go for silly money?
  7. Last August we sold our house. Built a new house, finished it in October. Then decided to finish the basement myself. Been without records and audio for 10 months. About 3 weeks ago I finished the basement enough to start moving stuff in. It's a work in progress with still more stuff yet to come from the framers.

    I sent him a picture of how truly fucked the LP was. Even he was shocked at how warped the C/D LP was (A/B was perfectly fine). Just bummed that I shelled out $50 for a record I couldn't play and got a lesser replacement. In the end, I got a replacement, so I shouldn't be too upset, but still...just bummed. He tried to make it up by throwing in an STB 45 adapter. So, there is a plus I suppose. He was definitely nice about the whole thing, so don't think he was rude or anything. I think he does genuinely care, and some people are cunts and try to take advantage. Still, all he has to do is ask for a photo to keep people from getting shit they don't deserve. Save a few copies of each version, wait a month to make sure nothing comes up, then release those extra copies if everything arrives to people just fine. That's what Ripple does. That's what a lot of labels do.

    Yup. I ordered Black Tusk's latest from Relapse. First copy arrived severely warped. Sent me a replacement, arrived broken. Third replacement was also really warped. Just said fuck it and did the LP sandwiched under books. After a month it was still slightly warped, but at least listenable. Figured with the Goya being pretty thick wax, I'd leave it for quite a while. I have the distro version if I feel the need to spin in the mean time.

    It's pretty "meh". My OBI Goya Obelisk arrived warped. Unlistenably warped... although he replaced it for me, it was with the distro version which was like $10 or $15 less than the one I bought. I've flip flopped around on being upset about it. I just decided to take what he offered and not make a stink about it. Really wish he'd save a few copies of each version back like virtually every other label does just for that exact reason. I have the OBI version under a bunch of heavy books, I'll look at it again come September and see if it's flattened out.

    Generally Totem Cat's actual record prices are reasonable. It's the shipping that is fucked.

    Is STB not doing DL codes any more? Got the Red Wizard and not a single DL code. Hate dropping $30 on a single LP (at 45 RPM no less) and not even getting a DL

    Snagged that S/T Egypt finally. Been trying to hold out for an original pressing, but for $11 I can't say no
