Also used him a few times and it has always been a pleasant interaction with good service.

It seems a lot of vinyl sellers are visually grading which I kind of understand because if you're selling in volume it wouldn't be possible to listen to everything however this can lead to both disappointment and pleasantries, from my experience it would seem this method is used by Mr Vinyl but again as stated this seems to be the way the “industry” is now grading.

I saw Roastin' Records was mentioned earlier but would like to add the website link too: http://roastinrecords.com/

It doesn't come cheap, but Wentzel has an interesting range and runs a tight shop!

Even duct tape can’t fix stupid… but it can muffle the sound

Does anyone have any experience with purchases of vinyl from takealot? I see they have a pretty basic selection but seem not too badly priced (mostly under R250, some over) a lot of parallel imports. Just wanted to see what you guys thought of the records you have purchased from them if at all

:ROFLMAO: I received LPs from them crammed and bent into a square box way too small for an LP on more than once occasion.
I open the box while the courier is waiting, see the disaster and tell him to return it.
They would typically resend in a box big enough for a fridge without any packaging material inside. LP - squashed corners. Open, laugh, return.
Resend again; large box, full of packaging material and my order of LPs. Yeeiii. Great success.
Next order, repeat the same story again...  :ROFLMAO: :faint:

^ Similar experience. Had much better luck from Loot and Raru.

Thanks, I just wanted to ascertain as someone potentially starting out listening to records what the quality was like where they all didn't cost over R500

I bought one from them and fetched it from the warehouse so no problems with packaging. lot of static on the record though which disappeared after a wash and vacuum.
