    I've just purchased a new turntable (Clearaudio Emotion) and cannot find an online supplier of vinyl. Can anyone help me?

    I've usually use vivante for my vinyl, they're not cheap but have the best selection of audiofile vinyl i've seen.

    Vivante

    I've also picked up some decent buys in HMV of all places from time to time :eek:

    I'd also second both of those.....Vivante I've used for yrs,and the range of both audiophile vinyl and CD they have is superb,and as Steve has said,HMV also have vinyl in surprising quantities at times,although the range is often poor,and limited to DJ material.

    You could also take a look at the Mobile Fidelity website if you're into audiophile vinyl,as they've restarted manufacturing.....not UK based obviously,and Vivante do import them(at a price).

    www.musicdirect.com

    www.acousticsounds.com

    both have great vinyl and audiophile selection and both ship internationally if you want to expand the exellent sources already listed for the UK.

    I have truly enjoyed dusting off my old albums and playing them on a much better system than I ever had while buying them. I've started buying vinyl again and the quality is terrific.

    Cheers, and enjoy your new TT.

    Thanks guys. Looking at the sites it seems dance music and classical are better served than rock and pop.

    My TT is yet to arrive but I can't wait.
