^^I'm not buying anymore used Classical vinyl albums, usually they are damaged or noisy. I am happy with my CD collection, and they did a much better job with Classical recordings than Rock did with theirs on CD's.
I have bought some new Classical vinyl LP's, but 2 of them are really noisy for some reason and that pissed me off no end. My one complaint would be for vinyl plants to have some sort of computerized quality control check of the finished record, that way you won't order one and get a copy with a gouge in the surface which I have experienced twice so far. The one drawback about buying vinyl records, classical or any other genre.
Thats the reason that i stopped buying vinyl records back in 1989 an embraced the humble compact disc.
Vinyl records of the late 1980s (in the UK) were either 'warped or had scratches on the playing surface or both when bought new from record shops' thats why I WOULD NEVER GO BACK TO BUYING VINYL AGAIN. I believe vinyl records are making abit of a come back?. Not with this kiddy they ain't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
