Black & white 50s style storage box - perfect size for vinyl LPs £7 - Matalan - Free c&c

LocalFound 11th Sep 2017
I bought this box and found it's just the right size for storing LPs. Any storage case designed for vinyl LPs (like the metal flight cases) cost around £30. So this, at £7 is an economic alternative.

30cm x 33cm x 31cm.

Outer: 54% Polyester 34% Cotton 12% Viscose. Lining: 100% Polyester.

With lid. Well made and sturdy.

Sadly I think this might be too tight for your average record.... I made the same mistake a month or so ago but LIDL are now doing these larger ones that also double up as seats.... hotukdeals.com/dea…581

Ah just clicked the link and see that the dimensions are 33 x 33 x 31...so assuming your vinyls are leaning back they should be OK

Mine fit perfectly fine in the box. Not a squeeze at all and the box has a certain amount of give in it.

I just don't get it.
It's like having the choice of buying a fillet steak for £10, but you decide to get a Richmond sausage for £12. It makes no sense.

Vinyl is just... a different experience and that analogy is trash.

Obviously, I can't speak for everyone as everyone has a different reason why'd they would collect Vinyl. For me, I just like having massive 12" squares of album art. The experience of loading it into the turn table and lowering the needle. It's just a different experience to music.

Some may argue it's cumbersome, and yes it is having to change the sides etc. but it's all part of the Vinyl experience. Cleaning, maintaining, having something to collect and in some cases, art on the wall.

Some people do it for monetary value. The amount that some people put into a Vinyl collection is astonishing but the resale value of some are gobsmacking - something you're not going to be seeing with a regular digital file or CD.

I could lie to you and do the stereotypical vinyl listener and say "Vinyl is much better sound wise" when in reality, I listen to both 320kbps audio and vinyl and I'm not qualified or have the ears to notice a difference, audio quality wise.

It's more like people buying an old classic car instead of a more reliable new car. But I guess you think all those people are hipsters too.
When my friends with same taste in music visit, we put few records on back to back and uninterrupted. It's makes you listen to the whole album.

CDs where never a thing for me, I've been using MP3s since 1999; and always purchased vinyls because they are more tangible and harder to copy. Also, they look cool and some have nice art work.

I don't know enough about audio to make a judgement which is the best quality. I buy records, CDs, tapes and MP3s and don't have a preference either way. It mostly comes down to cost for me. If I come across a record in a charity shop that i like and it's say 50p or £1, I'll buy it. I get many MP3 from Freegal - run by libraries you can download three tracks for free each week and don't buy many MP3s. Overall I think I prefer CDs over records, as secondhand records can suffer from scratches.

Vinyl has sharp and richer sound than CD and digital. CD is also compressed down so it has a duff sound to it, and digital is just as bad. Yes you hear crackling at the beginning but it stops when song begins.
