    Tell me about it. They used to be good but then they started moving around Queen street and I just stopped going. Was there recently at the Ossington location and I was quite surprised by the size and inventory though.

    Actually I think it's gotten a little better now that Brian doesnt seem to be there anymore. Way less attitude. I miss the original location.

    @Clint Howard

    So you were right my man. I called Rotate and they do have either the Orb or the Furutech (Same exact machine, just NA branded version). It's pricey though, 15 bucks an album, that includes a RCM clean. Not worth it for the value of the records I want flattened, I'm just gunna try to buy the machine. Gotta find someone to bring it from Japan. I'm serious though, I'm gunna buy one.

    Anyone know if something is out of stock, whether it is still subject to the 50% discount when it comes back in stock? Finding a few more interesting things the more pages I click through here, but don't want to end up paying full price.

    Yeah, thanks for the heads up, man! I usually try to avoid Amazon but damn, it's hard sometimes.

    I woke up at 4 am, figured out how to get to that page showing all vinyl discounts after about 30 minutes of fiddling, found the Analogue Productions Lightnin' Slim "Soul Blues" for 24 bucks and freaked, THEN found the Analogue Productions Double LP 45 Nina Simone "Little Blue Girl" for $44 which is normally over a hundred in store and almost fell out of bed. Then I stayed up for another hour searching... Almost bought about ten different box sets. But held off. Audiophile or bust.
