Yep

But I have just moved house and I am saving for a trip to USA. So vinyl purchasing will be reduced over the next few months.

When I get to USA though vinyl purchasing will increase

Of course. Already made a Juno and a discogs order for 2012.

Going a bit crazy I think because I'll have to cut back starting next month when I go back to full time study, so work hours will be halved.

Might have to start using bearport for newer gear.

still buy a lot of records but mainly focused on collecting rare (and expensive) obscurities.
Am "blessed" with not having to worry if people in a club or bar will like them ....ie no gigs atm

Good to hear people still fiending for the vinyl in 2012 - i would think it's dropping overall, but that probbaly means that the ones left will, like you Dr. Hysteric, probbaly focus on what has elluded us the most!

I'm still selling records a fair bit, so it's also good to hear that there's still a market for it

Yep still dig on the reg. They should put up a sticky "What Record did you pick up today" that way people can post up share their digs.

But it should be strictly posts on what you've picked up and want to share as opposed to what you want.

Not me (sadly, because there's something magical about vinyl records). However, a several of my older friends are avid buyers. And not coincidentally, most of them are audiophiles with impressive soundsystems at home... Frankly, I think vinyl might easily outlast CDs some day.

Im there for another 6 days and it stops on thursday, and wont come again

most plates are 10-15 bucks, and all clean as copies hardly played at all

this wont happen in sydney again, and its the fist time as far as i know, at such prices!

forget revolve, egg, vintage, redeye, et etc............its a one time gig and classic wax for great prices

i'm not going to stress if it's not snapped up, but be warned that it's as good as it gets in sydney

peace

I closed up after another party concluded we have different personality types.

not enough peeps came, so it wasn't worth me continuing.....

if your'e after specific records or have some idea of what you are after, drop me a line at: sydneywax@live.com

many more records still for sale, as this is my main livelihood for the time being

I bought a vinyl for an album I already owned on CD just because the vinyl had an extra instrumental on it.

Yes, although mainly over the internet these days. I just don't have a lot of time to go digging in physical stores anymore, unless I'm taking an out of town friend around. The rare times I get to hit a brick and mortar store or record fair is always good times.
I do plan on hitting the Black Gold fair this month.
