How much new Vinyl do you have...
 
How much new Vinyl do you have still sitting around unopened?

I am actually guilty of quite a lot. I buy far more than I have time to listen to, which results in them being stored neatly, and properly for another time.

I buy lots of classics, rock, jazz and way too many boxed sets.

I only have purchased 12 albums in the last few weeks, and 8 out of 10 albums of those are sitting wrapped - as I learn more about this, itís no guarantee despite buying from known presses, vintage, etc

I am learning a lot about this and know Iíll get bit but want to keep odds in my favor to avoid further expenses to buy more great sounding albums.

Wow, that's more than I purchased in the past year ! But with a modest collection (1500 plus or minus) I never run out of something to listen to.

Probably the most I ever purchased at one time might have been a half dozen albums, had them opened, cleaned and LAST treated and played within a week.

Probably around 500 or so. I don’t have the biggest collection by far, but I do my best to focus on it being as high quality as possible, I.e. the correct pressings, MOFI, Analogue Productions, collectible box sets etc. I have quite a few Classic Records pressings that are long out of print. I recently found an original Mobile Fidelity pressing of Queen’s Night At The Opera in mint condition I got from a guy on the Hoffman Forums for example. It wasn’t dirt cheap, but way better than the typical compressed reissues that are out there. I learned very quickly that it’s better to spend a bit extra than to penny pinch, especially on used vinyl. By doing this I have almost totally avoided bad pressings and records on crappy condition.

Buck, 500 unopened albums?!
I'd finally play a couple of them if I were you! :D

Iím current, but I recently went on a cleaning spree and took care of a dozen or so new ones that had been collecting

damacman 09-11-2019 05:40 PM

Less than a dozen unopened.

Same- except use my Smart Matrix RC & L'Art Du Son treatment.

Purchase about 5 LPs a week, & listen to them over the weekend (Saturday night & Sunday afternoon are my big listening sessions)- also cataloging my collection on Discogs (532 records graded & cataloged so far), so play about 2 to 3 of my existing collection to grade for cataloging- playing some LP's I havent listened too in 10 years- great fun.
