    As my employers will be stocking some more upscale turntables than we have sold in the past, the need will be there for us to provide demos of our new stock, unlike the price-point tables we sell now, which sell on price alone.

    So, that said, I want some reccomendations on worthy pieces of vinyl I should pick up as demo materials.

    Any and all reccomendations are welcome.

    Dire Straits, Love Over Gold.

    The original US pressing is outstanding, and I think there may have been a Classic Records (or another boutique label)200g vinyl reissue that is said to be even better.

    You might want to post this questions at the Steve Hoffman Forums.....tons of vinyl junkies there.

    Just a few (older) well recorded vinyl that can be found in most used record stores

    Dire Strait - Brothers in Arm
    Linda Ronstadt - What's New
    Andreas Vollenwiler - White Winds
    John Klemmer - Touch
    War - Greatest Hits
    Vince Guaraldi Trio - Charlie Brown Christmas
    Enya - Enya (1st album)
    Cowboy Junkies- Trinity Session
    Bob Dylan - Greatest Hits
    Keith Jarrett- Koln Concert
    George Benson - White Rabbit
    Grover Washington - Inner City Blues
    Mclaughlin, Da Lucia & De Meola - Live in San Francisco
    Mile Davis - Kind of Blue (the older the label($$$), the better)
    Chuck Magione - Children of Sanchez
    Dusty Sprinfield - Dusty in Memphis
    Simon and Garfunkle - Live Concert in Central Park
    Carpenters - Passage
    Dave Brubeck - Greatest Hits

    Your best bet for classicals is to buy RCA Living Stereo re-mastered on 180g to 200g vinyl. Which can be purchased new for around $20 to $30. Otherwise look for used Telarcs recordings.

    Happy Hunting. [​IMG]

    Just peruse any of the online vinly retailers like www.ElusiveDisc.com and you will find a load of great vinyl discs from quality manufacturers, just pick LPs that fit the style of music you are looking for and voila.

    look on ebay for some of the beethoven piano concertos that DECCA released, vladmir ashkenazy on piano. I have the fifth, and it's the best vinyl record I'veever heard.
