RE: Some of us gave you great suggestions for online purchasing, even though

You have not wasted your breath Mr. Alaskahiatt. Depending on what titles I see as "must haves," what I'm specifically searching for online, and general availability (extinct or current production) I will use all of the tools everyone has provided me here. I failed to ask the seller if the record was play-graded, but at 100% positive feedback and stellar comments from buyers I thought the purchase was worth the cost and risk.

My less-than-enthusiastic assessment of the entire process is a product of 1) High expectations, 2) Relatively long wait which exacerbated #1, 3) High Shipping costs, 4) Total inexperience buying a used record online, and 5) Upon listening to the record, the improper description and grading of the record.

I just wish I knew how to record a segment and let everyone here listen to what I hear. It's not unbearable (well some parts are,) just not what I expected. A thorough cleaning will undoubtedly help with the noise, but there are plenty of hairline scratches on the first side, and deep gouges on the adagio, as I mentioned to someone else. A cleaning, in any case, can only help, more than the liquid my father used with the pad.

Thank you for the recommendation of the KAB EV-1, that is the one I'll probably purchase considering its reasonable cost as compared to some others I had researched.
