Selling your Classical CDs
When you Sell CDs to us, we pay up to $3 for strong selling full-length CDs in excellent condition (more for certain rarities). However, there are many titles that we may only offer 10 cents to 50 cents for; due to oversupply, lesser demand and/or poorer condition quality. There are some titles that we cannot use at all. Prices are subject to change over time. There are some titles that we are not able to buy at all.
To get top-dollar, the CDs must be in excellent shape; no scratches
on the discs, cracks in the cases, or rips in the liner notes.
Selling your Classical Records
We typically pay up to $1.00 or more for many Classical LPs. However,
we are always looking for sought-after titles, and there are some
rarities that we pay much more for. On the other hand, there are
many LPs that we can not use at all because they are scratched,
weak-sellers, or we have too many of them. We base our offer on

LP collections that we buy come from customers that live within
2-3 hours from Princeton, NJ. You are welcome to fill out our sell
records questionnaire or call us to discuss your collection, but
please be aware that most records do not have a high enough
value to make shipping worth while. It is generally best
to bring them to our Princeton, NJ store, but we do recommend that
you speak with one of our appraisers first, or see LP
genres of interest to us and LPs
we have little interest in to make sure we don't waste your
