    Poor vinyl doesn't get played at my place, like the abbey road I bought recently, I would need to really be in the mood for it. But with plenty of great recordings to choose from I don't usually bother.

    Poor as in the Mix or CUT. I have a remastered Abbey road which is so bass heavy I couldn't listen to it. Got another when I complained and it's better. Not questioning your care and attention to your collection

    can you explain that last sentence Oliver, I'm not sure what that means, I don't look at my music as a collection, just music I like to listen to. Some have thousands that they don't have enough hours to listen to them all.

    Well, I thought you read my comment as "poor condition" or "not looked after" vinyl but I was refering to the actual quality of the pressing and the mix.

    I then wanted to assure you that I wasn't suggesting you didn't look after your Vinyl.

    Collection is basically the entire volume of your vinyl that you have "collected" over the years. Not a collection in the way of "looked at and not touched".
