We all know that surface noise is often part of the vinyl experience. I get that and understand. But sometimes i receive a record and am bothered by it. It can be distracting and bothersome. Especially if it was an expensive album. I have high expectations from things put out by Vinyl Me, Please. For good reason, IMO. Almost everything I’ve gotten from them has been perfect. I got Open Mike Eagle in my shipment. Great album. I just feel like the noise is louder than I accustomed to from VMP. I’m trying to discern if I’m being too picky or if I should say something. How do you feel about surface noise? Do you have an acceptable level?
