Off the beaten path, but they have an outstanding selection and it's organized well. Very easy to lose time sifting through original pressings and somehow find yourself picking up twice as much (or more) than you intended. Paul will gladly play any vinyl for you if you have questions regarding quality. Be prepared, though, and come with cash on hand and a list of what artists you're looking for. I find myself stopping in every few weeks for a drive by scan of what's new. Highly recommended
If you love records this is the place to go. Also, if you are looking for vintage stereo equipment he has lots to choose from. Not only is Paul the owner a sweet and terrific person, he is very knowledgeable and willing to help his customers find what they want, and leave totally satisfied with their purchase. Also, the customers that shop there, are all very respectful with each other, especially during these times of Covid. I have gone to his store for years and always look forward to shop there.
Records of all kind, speakers, artifacts & turntables in mint condition! Paul is comfortably friendly and helped me find two Anita Baker records I wanted. Collection is huge but he is very organized and even takes down requests that he keeps an eye out for. Highly recommend!
Very helpful and friendly. Really good selection of vinyl records. Store has a little bit of everything. I recommend stopping in if you get a chance!
Paul has been my audio hi-fi guy since I bought a receiver from him 5--6 years ago. He has been nothing but helpful and kind, always willing to go the "extra mile" (i.e., loan you a set of speakers if yours are being repaired). I never get tired of going there because the store is so packed full of cool stuff.
