Buying Audiophile Records & CDs at our New Jersey Store

Our selection of over 60,000 CDs, 10,000 DVDs & 60,000 LPs changes daily. Our selection also includes jazz, soul, funk, rock, world and much more. We sell audiophile records and CDs on labels such as MFSL, Mosaic records, Sheffield records and Mercury and RCA Classical, as part of our extensive collection. We hope to see you at our New Jersey store soon.

When selling your Audiophile CDs and Audiophile Records to us (and other music), we recommend you bring them into our New Jersey music store. If you cannot bring them yourself, you may send pre-approved titles via UPS or via Mail. We buy many audiophile recordings through the mail, including MFSL and Mosaic records and CDs. We do not accept, nor will be held responsible for unauthorized merchandise.

We typically pay from $3 & up per disc to as much as $50 per title for many audiophile LPs of jazz, rock, classical, and other records, including many different labels and artists. Reissues of most of the audiophile classical titles in excellent condition will generally be worth from $1 to $3 to us. Please Note: that we are interested in titles in excellent (mint to near-mint) condition only. Please call one of our friendly, knowledgeable record appraisers at (609)-924-3472.

For classical records, audiophile prices are for orchestral and instrumental recordings only. We pay much less for opera and vocal records.

Below is specific information about more desirable audiophile music on audiophile CDs and audiophile records we are looking to buy for when you decide to sell audiophile records to us.

BLUE NOTE - Click here to go to the Sell-Jazz section for more details.

CHESKY RECORDS - We pay $1 and up per disc for many titles.

COLUMBIA HALF-SPEED MASTERS - We pay $3.00 & up for most Columbia artists listed on our rock and jazz buying lists.

1. We pay from $2 & up for most stereo orchestral British Decca pressings. Most have the prefix "SXL." We pay from $1 to $5 for some non-orchestral titles. The label of the British (U.K.) LP must say "Made In England." The LP label must also include the words "Full Frequency Stereophonic Sound" inside a wide silver band across the center of the label.

2. British pressings with a thinner, 1/4-inch silver band are generally worth up to $3 per disc to us. Later British pressings and Deccas from other countries are worth from $1.00 to $3.00 each; Pressings made in Holland are worth substantially less.

3. For titles with the "SET" prefix (generally box sets) we generally pay from $1 to $2 per disc.

1. We generally pay up to $3 each for British EMI stereo orchestral recordings with ASD prefixes. Boxed sets with the prefixes SLS or SAN are worth between $1 - $3 per disc to us. Titles with CSD, ESD or HQS are worth between $1.00 and $3.00.

2. Original pressings contain a little dog inside a little box. Later pressings contain a much bigger dog and 1/2 the label is black. We pay approximately 50% of the original price for these later pressings.

3. Most later British, French, or German EMI pressings are generally worth from 50¢ - $2 per disc to us. Please note: Most "DMM" or "digitally remastered" titles are worth substantially less to us. This listing does not include American EMI/Angel titles. Please consult our Classical Buying List for more information on Angel LP's that we purchase.

CBS Mastersound LPs (1/2 Speed)- Many major Rock & Jazz artists, $3.00 to $10.00 each. Most Classical $1.00 to $3.00 per disc.

Direct Disk Labs LPs (1/2 Speed)-
Most major Rock & Jazz artists $1 and up per disc.

JAPANESE IMPORT PRESSINGS - Most major Rock & Jazz artists, $3.00 & up per disc.

If the back cover of the record has a blue color back, we generally pay from $1 & up per disc for London stereo orchestral records in the early "CS 6000" series (CS6000-CS6400). These records must have the words "Full Frequency Stereophonic Sound" written on the records as in the Decca LP's discussed above. If the records are "ffrr" (Full Frequency Range Recordings), we generally pay 40% of what we pay for the "blueback" LP's. We pay up to $3.00 for most stereo orchestral records numbered CS6401-CS7300. The LP label must say "Made In England." "Blueback" titles with "OS" prefixes are generally vocal records and are worth substantially less to us.

We pay up to $3 for most titles. There are very few non-orchestral titles on this label. All titles should be stereo, with the prefix SRCS and should be pressed by Decca or Nimbus. Those with "Nimbus" pressed into the vinyl are slightly more desirable.

NAUTILUS RECORDS (1/2 Speed)- We pay $1 & up per disc for many titles.

NIMBUS SUPERCUTS LPS- We pay $1 & up per disc for many titles.

1. We pay from $2 - $20 (more for certain titles) for most orchestral and instrumental pressings with the letters FR (followed by a number) stamped in the vinyl in the run-on area as part of the matrix number. For RFR (followed by a number) pressings before SR90300 we pay somewhat less. We pay $1 - $5 (more for certain titles) for many RFR pressings from SR90301 to SR90550.

2. For pressings with the word "VENDOR" written below "Mercury" on the label we pay approximately 50% of our normal price for early pressings.

3. If the photo strip on the back cover is black and white, we pay 20% - 40% of our normal prices. If it is also a later pressing our price may be further reduced.

4. For late pressings where the word Mercury on the top of the label is in an oval, and the label is in lighter maroon than the earlier pressings, we pay around 20% of the price that we pay for early pressings.

5. For late pressings with "M," "CTFR," "CBFR," or other "C" prefix stamped in the vinyl, we pay around 10% of the price that we pay for early pressings.

6. Promo Labels: We generally pay the same price as we would for a stock copy (the labels may be white, pink, yellow, blue, or other colors).

Please feel free to call an audiophile LP appraiser at (609)-924-3472.

MFSL RECORDS (Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab 1/2 Speed)- We pay up to $3 per disc for most MFSL records, including the artists listed below. Learn more about MFSL vinyl.

MOSAIC RECORDS - We pay $6.00 & up per disc for most Mosaic records. Learn more about Mosaic vinyl.

SWEET THUNDER LPs (1/2 Speed)- We pay up to $3.00 per disc for many Sweet Thunder audiophile recordings, including the artists listed below.

1. An RCA "Shaded Dog" Stereo LP (prefix: LSC) may be identified by a dog centered on the upper part of the label, with two shades of maroon, the darker maroon shading around the dog. We pay from $2 - $20 or more each for many desirable stereo orchestral and instrumental (especially violin and cello recordings) Shaded Dogs (not Dynagrooves). Opera and vocal titles are worth much less.

2. A "White Dog" has one color only around the dog, slightly brighter red than the shaded dog color. For Orchestral and Instrumental White Dogs that are not Dynagroove, we generally pay $1 - $2 for many titles.

3. We pay $1 for many orchestral or instrumental "Shaded Dog" or "White Dog" stereo Dynagroove pressings. The word "Dynagroove" appears near the bottom of the LP label, as well as on the LP cover.

4. We can buy certain RCA Mono only titles with LM, LHMV, LCT, and LVT prefixes. We do not buy mono Shaded Dogs or White Dogs when there is a stereo equivalent (most titles from LM2100 - 2800). Also, non-dogs and "side dogs (late pressings)" are generally worth less than $1 per disc to us. Of course there are some exceptions to the numbering schemes. There are some stereo Shaded Dogs starting from LSC-1806, with sporadic issues up until LSC-2200; after LSC-2200 almost all titles are available in stereo.

5. We generally pay from $1 to $3 per disc for many stereo orchestral "RCA Soria "(LDS prefix).

REFERENCE RECORDINGS - We pay $1 and up per disc for many titles.

SHEFFIELD RECORDS - We pay $1 and up per disc for many titles and more Audiophile vinyl titles.
