Equipment Blog

The record “Emporium” as the name suggests is more than just records. We carry a great selection of equipment and accessories associated to vinyl, as well as personal audio stuff, such as record cleaning machines, new stylus or cartridges, tonearms, turntables, & vinyl “tweeks.” Also, personal listening gear such as ear buds/phones, DAC’s, amps, and a nice seclection of home Hi-Fi stereo equipment and speakers.

For those with older turntables, “See our website/Facebook page’ to get into one of our monthly “turntable” clinics to rejuvenate or tune-up that old vinyl spinner!

So this blog will serve to accomplish many things from record reviews (and CD reviews) for those who wish to own the genuine article, to equipment reviews to keep you up-to-date on all the latest stuff.

    Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers: Wide Open

    Audiophile Rating: Music Quality = 10, Recording Quality = 9

    Jimmy Thackery - Tryin' To Keep

    This is the best I have heard from Jimmy Thackery in a very long time.  And, as I own 12 of his cd's and albums I think I speak with authority.  I also saw him live at the Blueberry Hill Duck Room in St. Louis several years ago.  The cd has 12 tracks and is 72:29 long so you get a lot for your money.  My favorite track is Coffee and Chicken, track 3 but it is all exceptional.  Try it, you will like it.
