Mike, do you have any idea what the proper EQ curve is for those disks (the AFRS multi-tune disks)?

Because "he" has over 55,000 records up on site at a time and most of
them are priced in the single and double digits. A couple of weeks ago
I got an LP from them that I had been looking for for 20 years at a Best
Offer price of $8.00. Looking at the recent completed sales I do think
I have seen most of them in recent years for less than $3.00, but if you
need a record in a hurry . . .

Sometimes there are very good images on this site. They were just
sloppy this time and you might be able to get them to retake pics of the
labels since that is so necessary on this pair.

This statement is way beneath you, Joe. 99.6% is FANTASTICALLY
CONSISTENT. 25 negatives in the past 12 months out of almost seven
thousand seven hundred sales? Some were problems with shipping damage,
the customs dept in Greece and Germany, and others thought that their
listing of the lowest grading of VG should yield a record that was
really very very very GREAT!!! Read the complaints yourself -- there
are so few of them it will take about two minutes.

As for Tom's question, no these are not worth anywhere near this because
these are not original recordings.
