    This thread has inspired me to go check out some local places and in Melbourne itself over the summer holiday period.

    A couple of places instantly spring to mind!

    Hopefully can get some bargains!

    Audioslave - Out of Exile
    Beastie Boys - License To Ill (original 1986 pressing!)
    Daft Punk - Random Access Memories (I couldn't f'n believe it when I saw it! was scratched, but EAC only got errors in the last 30 seconds of the disc)

    Nice! $2.50 well spent. Can't beat CD prices right now, especially when they try to sell you downloads of the same material in inferior quality for 5x the price.

    Yeah, I looked up the prices of those 5 CDs on iTunes, it came out to be around 50 dollars! Insanity.

    That's the thing about downloads and CD's - why would you pay more for an inferior product? CD's usually sound better and you get a physical back-up. Kudos to all my bin digging bretheren!!! You will find it, if you look long enough!!!!

    Great soundtrack, has a lot of really good songs from the era (early 90's), including my favourite Soundgarden song Blind Dogs..

    I agree, I prefer vinyl too, just some things aren't available on vinyl or are way too expensive. Some CD's are pretty good...

  • MedozKMedozK TennesseePosts: 7,265
    Yep, depending on the mastering, some CDs are the preferred versions over vinyl.
  • reesdogreesdog Auckland, NZ.Posts: 1,981
    For example, the Dinosaur Jr CD I posted above was never released on vinyl, it's not even available on iTunes..

    I just sold off a bunch of my records last month - got a huge credit (like $300) to use in-store at my local. Been chipping away at it with CDs. I think my interest in vinyl is really waning, maybe disappearing.

    Its certainly a buyers market for CDs. You can get some great deals on great sounding music.
