Mark Phillips, AKA “The Vinyl Anachronist” came by the shop a few weeks ago and spent the day listening to music and talking shop. Here’s his write up in PERFECT SOUND FOREVER
Now that I’ve got your attention…

Once upon a time there was a street in Austin called The Drag. Located across the street from University of Texas, The Drag was a street loaded with record shops, book stores, coffee shops, arcades and cheap eats. Then the 90’s came to a close and everything died there along with the Dot Com bust. Even The Gap and Tower Records closed. This was where my first shop was located. It’s now a Tattoo / Piercing studio called Diablo Rojo. Belly button piercings are better biz than hi-fi…. whatever. There was a record shop there called Inner Sanctum. The owner has opened up his home for the past few weeks to unload the remainder of his record stash. This is a pic from Friday morning. A bunch of dudes waiting for him to open up. The funny thing is that there was a sign on the door saying “I have a cold, closed until next week” Even so, people were waiting hoping he would show up. I felt like I was “waiting for my man” ie. Lou Reed. After 15 minutes someone mentioned the sign and I left… Jonesing for black gold.
An excellent example of a gacked out Audiophool. Loves his cables more than women? Lives in his mom’s basement doing meth? Probably giving out “great” advice on various audio forums. So Scary!! Watch with the lights on!
It doesn’t happen often, but I just set up a Rega P78 turntable. It’s really surprising how good an old 78 can sound! This one is going to NOLA! I know for a fact that it will be playing some great music you won’t find on iTunes!
I’ve been waiting a few months to get these back in. I stupidly sold my demos not knowing they were back ordered. DeVore are doing their best to keep up with the high demand. A great problem to have! John says he’s all caught up, so No Fear! They will be here in a few days. How ’bout that Wild Cherry finish!! and NO, you can’t buy my dems.
