Pricey. A lot of original records and great place for treasure hunting. They guarantee their records. The ambiance is very chill. Records playing. Gym next door can be loud if by wall and distracting. Decades of records to look through and priced as originals. Would go back again for a specific record. Priced too high for routine record shopping.
I was two years old when this business opened in 1962. It was my first time visiting this store. Unfortunately, I arrived late in the day and only had 12 minutes to quickly look around before they closed at 3pm on a Friday. Overall, I was blown away by what I saw and I will definitely come back soon when I have more time to explore.
They were able to get my dad's record player working again, I was also able to get a receiver. They have a great selection of record players, and audio components, as well as a good selection of cds and vinyl

A place off the beaten path. This place is a Connecticut musical gem. The musical collection is multi-diverse, multi_genres. I'd say a minimum of 2 hours is too short, They have vintage audio equipment aswell. I'm from the Bronx. I'll take this drive !! This place has obscure, rare, Soul, hip hop rock. I even got a monster mash album. Wow. This place is the bomb. I'll be going back soon. I'm ashamed to say I've not gotten back since 2016. I'm going back this week. Vinyl, cds, DVD, Chit he may even have an 8track
Large selection of vinyl, cds, cassettes, vintage equipment and other music collectables. Staff is always friendly and willing to help. This place is a great record store for all music lovers.
