We do not carry CD’s but we understand the strength and weaknesses of lossy and lossless digital formats. We know the benefits of both tube and transistor gear just as well as well we know the benefits of FLAC and WAV 24 Bit/96 kHz and/or 24 Bit/192 kHz file sampling over the MP3 format.

Like any good record shop, we regularly host a variety of in-store performances and shows from both local and touring bands. Please see our happenings page for more

We also offer vintage reconditioned phonographs, mid-century stereo consoles, and other Hi-Fi gear and can advise on the purchase of a record player that will suit your needs for years to come. We pride ourselves in our merchandise and most vintage equipment is sold with the guarantee that we will sell you something that works for you or we will give you your money back. We want to help you to have the right new equipment or vintage record player, receiver and speakers that will bring the most out of your record collection.

We keep in stock only the best record cleaning products and can clean, transcribe and deliver back to you a digital recording of your favorite or most cherished records. We are one of the only resources that can transcribe your archaic acetate records including those made by Presto, Wilcox-Gay, Recordio, Rek-O-Kut, Tru-Kut, and Audiodisc that were used for commercial or home recording from the 1940’s to the 1960’s. We know how to choose the best stylus for the job, our turntables are specifically set up to match the individual record type and we generally will not exceed two grams of force to transcribe a recording. We cannot transcribe foil, or wax cylinder recordings at this time but we are currently developing a system for these recordings.
