How to Grade Your Records


I have always liked VG status because it sounds like a disease.
Alright, now im curious. Whats foxing?
I hate to do this, but being a vinyl newbie, I must ask what you have as a set-up. Rega? Something more esoteric?
@ 2 Foxing is when white paper turns brown.

@ 3 I don't have fancy gear, everything I have was bought second hand. 300W amp, w/200W floor speakers, OLD late '60s cabs tho, and cheap turntable since I'll buy 500 45s and track through them all in an hour. Expensive gear isn't forgiving...tho I do have a cherry 1965 Thorens deck I should set up...get a good cart/stylus if you can't afford expensive gear.
