Where to Buy 180 gram vinyl and 200 gram vinyl?

I have searched around and found a few places that sell 180 gram vinyl and 200 gram vinyl, but not knowing them all I am a bit skeptical.

What are your trusted sites to buy higher grade vinyl?

Thanks!

Music Direct, Acoustic Sounds and Best Buy.

Happy hunting.

A friend at work gets his from ebay. He gets them from sellers that have 100% feedback and says he's never has a problem.

I wanted to pick up the Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 180g vinyl, but the reviews of it on vinyl are horrid. Looks like I might get the SACD instead.

Hello,
DSOTM on SACD is honestly the best sounding SACD I have ever heard. Alison Krauss & Union Station Live (which was Recorded native into DSD) is up there as well. In addition to the above listed Record Shops, Rhino and especially Rhino Handmade have some amazing Vinyl.
Cheers,
JJ

If you want DSM forget about 180g and just go for the original,you can easily find them at second hand stores,yard sales,etc.here it the way it was meant to be heard.not a re-mastered marketing gimmick.When DSM came out they weren't recycled vinyl they didn't do that back in the day.

I have DSOTM on SACD and it is awesome. I listened to a little of it just yesterday. I also have it on original vinyl, although I did not take all that good care of it during the early years. While I like DSOTM, my favorite is MLOR and WYWH. I was just hoping WYWH would have been better on vinyl that what the reviews indicate.

I will check out Rhino too.

Add Elusive Disc for vinyl. Speaking of Dark Side of the Moon I recently picked up a Japanese pressing of the album. If you see the Serial #EMS 80324 get it. By far the best vinyl pressing of this album I ever heard. I picked it up this week at a local used record store for $15.

Thanks for the info... Elusive looks like a good shop, as do most of the ones I have visited thus far. I like the idea that Acoustic Sounds has reviews.

Hello,
As these Websites sell their Vinyl for quite expensive prices, it might be worth at least searching on Amazon for titles that you might intend to purchase at one of those sites.
