RECORD / VINYL / LP LABELS...

CD COLLECTIONS...

AUDIO EQUIPMENT...

We love all things musical, but are ultimately looking to add to our archive classical Vinyl / LP collections. Whilst 78 rpm records are very historical, we currently do not purchase 78's unless you have solo violin or cello works.

 

We buy Orchestral Opera Chamber and from early music performances to the latest digital recordings.

 

We also have interests in Jazz, Folk, World and other contemporary genres of music, including film soundtrack test pressings and demo recordings, be sure to contact us first if your collection contains other styles of music.

 

Below is a quick guide to help you indentify some

of the popular British record labels that we are looking for.

As well as buying classical Vinyl and LP Collections, we also purchase small to large CD collections.

 

Cd collections can be purchased as entire large collections and also small or part collections which can include labels such as HMV, EMI, Decca, RCA , Sony, CBS, Deutsche Grammophone Phillips, Hyperion, Harmonia Mundi, Archiv, Chandos, Lyrita, Dutton, CRD, Naive, BIS, Supraphon etc.

UK Classical Archives founder Adrian, has a huge passion and knowledge in used and vintage Audio equipment and is always keen to find rare and vintage equipment.  Items that are of interest include Turntables, Speakers, Pre and Power Amplifiers, CD players, reel to reel tape machines, Pro Audio, including Microphones and studio recording equipment.

 

Original boxes and packaging manuals are very useful, and if you have kept all original boxes, this will reflect on its second hand value.

 

Standard Japanese Hi Fi Equipment such as Sony, Samsung,  Philips, Rotel, Pioneer is sadly not of as much interest, due to its mass produced nature, but always try us with what you might have.

 

Model numbers are always useful to have when contacting us regarding your used Hi-Fi

 

Hi Fi equipment that we are interested in buying includes manufacturers such as:

 

If you are unsure of the brand, we can help you identify it, contact Adrian directly on 01803 60 61 62 or email ukclassicalarchives@gmail.com
