This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

A great Who album by any standards, and a gift at this price. Contains two of the best Who songs ever committed to wax - Baba O'Reilly and Won't get Fooled Again. If you already collect vinyl and don't have this, buy it! If you're just starting out collecting vinyl, buy it! You certainly won't be getting fooled (groan).

Why bother when the audio CD is only £4.21 ?
And you won't have to spend thousands of pounds to hear it at its best (which will still be lower fidelity than the cd.
And you wan't have to spend time cleaning the record.
And you won't have to listen to the record as it deteriorates over use.

Great music BTW

”I don't care what they say, you can't whack The Who”
Wonder if they play this at the start of every cabinet meeting?
That would probably be "Who Are You".
Is that the tardis in the back there?

Show me a record/deck/cartridge combination that can reproduce accurately a 10K sound wave. It can't because a stylus can't accelerate fast enough (as it has mass) to it can't trace the groove. And that is just a simple sine wave. Real music is much more demanding and stereo. The shape of the diamond is a compromise to help trace the groove more accurately but it can't avoid damaging it.
And then there is inner grove distortion, crosstalk (between the two channels) hiss, rumble and hum

Just blind test a Linn LP12 against your chosen cd player and catch your jaw. All I'm saying.

I wouldn't bother with a Linn, I have a Microsekki DDX1000, a variety of SME arms and MM & MC cartridges etc and both the CD and the disk and there is simply no contest

You can feel the sound of a vinyl record, there’s an ambience in the air which you don’t get with clinical digital recordings (except for classical recorded CDs) it logically shouldn’t make sense but it’s true especially through my old Leak speakers.

I have a Micro Seiki player as well. Direct drive, with a Linn K5 cartridge and original stylus. I retired it when my wife bought me a Fluance RT-81 for Christmas before last. A marvel of late 70's/early 80's Japanese workmanship.

Couldn't agree more! I don't have a massively expensive system (Rega turntable, Denon amp, Mission QX2 speakers), but for me vinyl produces a warmth that digital media just can't match. Almost like vinyl is a living thing, whereas digital is perfect, sterile and inanimate.

Vinyl brings an emotional connection before it is even played.

It is almost ceremonial in holding the album, artwork print and inlays large and easier to hold and appreciate. The careful removal of the disc, placing on the turntable, turning it on and allowing a couple of passes with the anti-static cleaner before moving the arm and lowering into position hoping you have aimed it right. Having to get up and change the side over and repeat the procedure.
It creates a space of calm without even hearing the music. You cannot rush the vinyl experience.

My CD's are almost disposable in comparison, bits of plastic with cases that are fragile and inlays/booklets that pale against the vinyl offering and so often damaged as you try to get them back in place. I have a few CD's that are extremely well presented but in the main Vinyl is king.

Nailed it!
If its a great album/song it will still be great album/song no matter what format you listen to
I have this album on vinyl as it was £9.99 in hmv a few months back but would be just has happy to listen on cd.
I love the fact there is a vinyl revival thing going on, because i get to buy 2nd hand cds from charity shops for 50p or under as knowone wants them anymore, and i just love listening to music
