    It's a nice thing going to the vinyl shop and get lost into the displayed music.People soon start to know each other by their names,become regulars and buy music as a habbit.
    Each one coming out of the store will have at least five records under their arm whereas people going into the cd shops rush in to buy one copy!

    I have been buying new vinyl about once every 2 weeks for the last few years. Most of it has been of the 180g variety and I've had pretty good results. There's a big hate-on for some of the UMG Back-to-Black releases on other forums, but I don't share that opinion. Sure they're not Ciscos or Quiet-X or Music on Vinyl, but then they don't come with the same pricetag either. I also buy used vinyl, but that has now dimished significantly and I only really go nuts when I go to some of the record fairs (of which there are several here).


    I voted 0-10. If it were higher I'd need to find larger living quarters!

    I go through phases. After a while not buying anything, Sometimes I went nuts and bought plenty. I just was in Berlin, and bought enough that had to buy a new suitcase to put the records in. I would say that last few months I bought about 40 to 50 records a months at least.
    I also bought a lot of duplicates...I think 10 or 12 copies of Miserere (Arvo Part) and all LP products still available on ECM New Series. Some duplicates. Last year I bought all LP records available on LEO label even though some of that music may not really be my taste now. I like to support good labels and small businesses.

    Don't you just love buying LPs in Europe. When I used to get over there on business, and before they became sooo expensive, I used to go crazy buying LPs in the UK and France!

    Personal finacial situation puts me squarely in the "0-10" bracket. If cash wasn't an issue, I'd say I'd be in the 20-30 range (I'd love to buy more, but there's only so many listening hours in a month!).

    I only purchased what I want now which is not very often and its seldom new. usually vintage and hard to find LPs. latest LP purchase , The Hunter, Jennifer warnes and Hope, Hugh Masakela
    original much better than re issue. I cant understd why some of us with ultra high syst is not willing to spend on original but rather buy reissue because its cheaper. If its not available and if they thk reissue is better sounding , which is seldom the case ( my opinion) , then is a different issue. I have friends who used clearaudio statemt, another 1 with humongous Krell power amp and previous top model Focal but mainly buy reissue and titles
    When I 1st started in this expensive hobby, I purchase titles I like and reissue LPs. Once I understand LP better I started buying original thru ebay and all sort of online site eg cdandlp.com, mikrokosmos.com, audiophileusa.com and was in such a rapid buying spree , that I have packages coming into my office almost everyday, so much so that my software probably cost more than my system and accumulated more than 2000+ original LP within 2 years. Almost bought everythg in Harry Pearson list, a lot of MFSL etc. Abt a year ago I got back my sanity and slowed down on the purchases. Then again I got bitten by reel to reel disease since dec, last year. Fortunately hardly any 15ips tape available

    Same here! Still, the releases of the remastered Love Over Gold in a few days gives the excuse for a mini splurge on it and the preceding two remasters (I already have the first one). I might add another to the order to take the number up to four: I like even numbers. :-)

    These days, definitely 0-10 unlike when I got back into vinyl and was rebuilding my lost collection.
