Let's Fight High LP Prices

LPs should not sell for more than the High Resolution Digital Formats; especially considering LPs shorter playing time.

New Commercial LP releases: $15.00 maximum

New Audiophile LP releases: $30.00 maximum

Used Commercial LPs: $10.00 maximum

Used Audiophile LPs: $20.00 maximum

Also don't forget thrift stores for out-of-print LPs, sometimes even Audiophile LPs for 25 cents to $1.00.  Yes you can still find Mint and even factory sealed at the thrifts!

I let the collectors pay super high prices for out of print LPs, I either wait for a good deal or look for a modern pressing.  There is no reason to go crazy bidding for LPs, if the price is not reasonable I pass.  It will show up later and at the price I am willing to pay.
