We stock over 3000 new release & pre-loved records. We also carry a neatly curated range of turntables, headphones,  needles and advice. Yes we do do mail order; no we don't have an online store. Honestly, how many hours do you spend online already? Get your ass out the door, come have a dig and discover something new.

The stylus is a very important component. It's typically a diamond. On cheap entry level turntables, it is usually not a diamond and is terrible for your vinyl (except our LP60 which sports the AT91 diamond :)

In moving magnet cartridges (the most common) magnetic conductors inside the cartridge surround a magnet and as it moves its magnetic field is distributed between the conductors. This energy flows through copper coil to produce an electrical signal which is sent to the amplifier to be reproduced through the speakers.
