Right next to Mississippi Records, there is a small store called "Mississippi Home Stereo" that is owned and managed by Eric (or is his name Aaron? I don't know). It's filled with, of course, home stereo equipment - receivers, amplifiers, speakers of all shapes and sizes, record players, a few radios, and parts/components. Just about anything you can think of. The prices may seem a little on the high side, but that said this is a small, local business running on sales income - and I fully support that. And unlike eBay or online marketplaces for buying used audio equipment, you have the privilege of testing the equipment (or asking Eric to do it for you) and making sure it works - and works properly. When it comes to buying items, you usually pay cash (I don't think he takes credit or debit cards... haven't tried), but if it's an easy sell or returning something you bought from here, you can get away with exchanging a piece of equipment and pay less for the gear you want. As for repairs, you might as well hobble over to Jamac Audio for speakers unless it's a simple fix, or if it's a record player. Eric's repair team is short-staffed and so he has way too many projects going on right now. You might be able to get a job opportunity there if you're handy with servicing audio gear. As for selling, I haven't sold many pieces of gear, only speakers. So I can't really say anything about record players or receivers/amps. That said, Eric is interested in decent speakers - ideally with real wood veneer or walnut, not vinyl, if it needs work. If it doesn't need work, I'm sure he'll take most any speakers. Just don't expect to get much cash for it.
Perhaps the best record shop in Portland. Always finding a gem or two to take home. Staff are always so welcoming ( not a Portland attitude in my experience), and didn't the owner Eric find the rarest Velvet Underground acetate in NYC? Not to mention their record label releases wonderful stuff. Too much to mention..but look it up. Plus Toody Cole used to have a pop-up shop in their basement. How cool is that!?
Good Ramen. Not great. The atmosphere was typical Japanese hole-in-the-wall in a good way. Folks were very friendly. I just wish I had enjoyed the Ramen more.
Love love loooove this place. Been going here for years. It's the kind of place where you always walk out with something, whether or not that was your plan going in. Chill vibes, and there's always a great selection.
Great selection...love the dollar bins...found one of my favorite hard to find artists. Also great selection of blues. Enjoyed chatting about my selections while checking out...learned some new info about one of the albums I was buying ..love this place!
