    Doesn't your local shop carry them? If I buy quantity, they give me a break in price.

    I just unwrapped a sealed copy of Styx - Pieces of Eight that my wife had when we got together, 20-plus years ago.

    My local shops don't carry them. The shops are either too high end or too low end to bother.

    No but thinking about getting it in a few months down the road. Wife bought me a Music Hall 2.1 a few weeks ago and it aint bad at all. I was surprised at what turntables could do after not having a TT sense the 80's. Music Hall tables are really Pro-Ject players made for MH. The table in the picture is a Pro-Ject 1 Xpression III....nice carbon fiber arm.

    I was just listening to an Expression Mahogany a few days ago. Awesome table. And you're correct, Music Hall don't actually make much. My local shop sells Pro-Ject and you can't even mention Music Hall in there, they all make fun of it.

    I think most people are getting a bit of a misconception about Pro-Ject. They're not making turntables, either. That factory near Prague that makes the Pro-Ject and Music Hall turntables...



    ...has been making turntables since long before their deal with Pro-Ject. In the 1950s, they even made this guy...

    I like to think I'm a kool kat, but I'm not too sure my Styx album is going to git 'er done.

    Edit: Now I'm cool. Today's top find...

    Nice find noob, looks great. Is that wallet embossed on the cover?

    Anyhow, I am here to gloat about my latest haul. Everything cleaned up to reveal mint or near mint. Imagine the sheer joy, listening to an original copy of Highway 61 Revisited as though it was just pressed. Not a single hiss or pop. Sometimes I let out a laugh while listening. No sibilance or hissing so often found on LPs of this vintage. The Zappa and Humble Pie is out of this world.

    Hahaha! I take it you edited the photo? That's too funny, with it's placement it looked like an embossed wallet or pocket for the jeans. Did you buy that new? That's one hell of a sleeve.

    noob. From what I understand of Pro-Ject, its no different from a lot of companies including those who sell Road Bikes under their names....many of the better bikes are made in the same factory but don't actually own anything. They give their designs to the factory and they build it. Pro-Ject is the biggest client that factory has. This is also true of drivers for speakers. Tymphany a company that owns and manufactures speakers under its own name and manufacturing and owning Peerless speakers...Vifa speakers....Scan Speak speakers before selling , also make speaker drivers for other brand name speaker company's according to that company's specs. One such client of Tymphany is Klipsch. I ran accross that information about Klipsch while researching drivers. I hope no one gets the idea that sense some companies don't actually make their own product then the company is some how less of a real company...that is far from the truth.

    I would guess those stickers are applied by hand and the worker bees must have decided on that spot. Maybe just having a bit of a chuckle at work.

    It's a "new" record, in that it was sealed, but I paid $6.91 including tax for it at Half-Price Books, a chain of stores that carries used and overstock books, movies and music. My Wayne Shorter - Adam's Apple came from the same series and in the same type sleeve. It also came from Half-Price, but I don't think it was as cheap as this one.

    That's really what I was getting at. Music Hall isn't less quality than Pro-Ject just because they're the little guy who doesn't own anything.

    noob...I just went to the web site half-price books. Unbelievable prices on their CD's. Are they new or used?

    PoppaC...they have Frank Zappas CD "Hot Rats" for $2 bucks.

    Right, and probably $25 to get it across the border. I've been shopping domestically for over a year now. My favorite E-shop, especially for vinyl is Acoustic Sounds. Great shipping prices and amazing selection. I haven't bought anything from them in quite some time. You should check them out.

    Most of the inventory at Half-Price Books is the used stuff individuals come in and sell to the store.

    No just the artists I listed. I remembered what you had said, but the fact that Chet Baker was on it sealed the deal.
