One of our good customers had this to say about some Hot Stampers he purchased recently:
I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team. Your Hot Stampers have returned that analog magic to my listening room. I am stunned by some of the albums I have gotten. Given my travel schedule, I don’t get to listen to all the albums I buy. I have been catching up over the holidays. You guys have taken critical listening to a whole new level and are consistent in your evaluations and accurate in your write ups. My listening skills and appreciation of great recordings has improved over this past year.
The attitude of your team has made doing business a delightful experience. Fundamentally, at the most basic level after all the “equipment upgrades” in my life, I am truly enjoying listening to music again.
That may not seem very profound, but for me it is a revelation.
The only one not pleased with my new discovery is my wife. She does not appreciate the value equation of your product; my musical selections; nor does she like the amount of time I am spending in my listening room. Often she calls me on my cell phone from other parts of the house asking me when am I coming out!
Please keep up the good work; it is one of a kind.
Thanks so much for the kind words. Finding old records that are full of Analog Magic is at the heart of our business. Plenty of other record dealers can find old records, but can they find you an old record that sounds better than any pressing you have ever heard? Better than any audiophile pressing being made today? Dramatically better?
That is a very different animal. Our records may be expensive, but what is the joy of music worth? It’s priceless, is it not?
The value equation is indeed hard for some folks to appreciate. More on that subject here.
