Zero unopened. They arrive here and I listen to them as soon as Iím able. About 5% go back due to some flaw or another. I think only Acoustic Sounds has a perfect record so far. Ouch. Bad pun.

I have 7 unopened - 6 MoFi One Step Ultradiscs and 1 UHQR from Analogue Reproductions. They may stay like that for a while.

Funny you should ask because I just "thinned the heard" of unopened vinyl in my collection. Until recently, it was 30 or more. But cut it down to around 13 after cleaning the others. Have been listening to the opened and cleaned ones since.

Oops. Make that around 14 unopened now. I just got a new vinyl album in and added it to the unopened stack.

Yes. Discovered one unopened this week, which was an error on my part. No longer unopened. Only 'collect' to listen to, not to collect.

Also, my four MoFi 45rpm Dire Straits are still unopened. I have my 33rpm ones to listen to until I decide to move forward. I currently only have approx 720 LPs that I started to rebuy in 2008 after selling all my LPs in 1985 during the CD hype. Of the 720, 95% are new, the rest are used because they have not been reissued.

I have seven unopened LPs. It will eleven when I get my delivery today. That will annoy my wonderful wife to no end. I donít like to open them until I can clean and listen to them. I also have anxiety about paying good money for an LP, mostly MoFi and Analogue Productions, and have it be noisy or click. I recently started buying new LPs because my old ones, from the 70s, are beat up. It's amazing how much the needle weighted down by the coins chewed through the grooves.

I have one new LP on the way, haven't bought a whole lot of vinyl lately. I found a NM copy of The Black Crowes' Before the Frost from a seller on the Hoffman forums. It's a great album that didn't get many pressings, it's very rare. It wasn't cheap but looking forward to listening to it, should get it any day now.

I got an original. Itís really good. I love this album. Top shelf Crowes imo. I like the sequencing of the LP better than the cd.

This! I open everything immediately to check for quality. I've had to return a few here and there due to warping. Amazon seems to have the overall worse record having returned several. I've had to return 1 to MusicDirect and 0 to Acoustic Sounds.
