We collect and sell vinyl LPs, EPs and 45s as well as vintage audio equipment -- including receivers, amplifiers and turntables.
We at Sights n Sounds are musicians with a deep appreciation for the warmth of analog sound.
All of our records are sound-tested at one gram tracking force with broadcast quality cartridges on belt-drive turntables. (We look for warps on direct drive tables using the same broadcast quality cartridges.) Playback is monitored through open air Sennheiser headphones and neutral studio monitors for optimum fidelity of the vinyl.
