    Let's just hope they went to people who appreciated them more than I did.
    I expect they did.

    Oxfam always have had a bizzare pricing policy. I guess it come down to the person who values the stock: whether he consults the record buyer's guide, ebay etc., but round here most classical LPs are priced at 5 or more, and if it's a Decca SXL pressing then at least 10 regardless of condition! Even the staff think the prices asked are absurd.

    Suffice to say if they had adopted a more sensible pricing policy, I would have spent many hundreds of pounds there.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Absolutely! I wouldn't buy them at that price, even in my mad vinyl days.
    But, strangely, they do sell at those prices at that shop. I think crazed classical vinylists (?) come from many miles away to that Hereford Oxfam.

    Good. I always like a bit of slack in speaker cables. Better to have them longer than too short, makes it easier to adjust speaker positioning.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!
