Hi Everyone. I know this has probably been discussed a lot in the past but I wanted to hear your experiences on the benefits or any disadvantages of 180g vinyl and standard pressings… Although I am relatively new to building up my collection. I have found that predominantly all the pressings of my favourite music seem to be re-released in 180g. Any original releases I have are physically much thinner and seem to have a lot more energy and ‘punch’ I’m led to believe that a thicker slab gives a deeper richer bass, but is this always an advantage? Do any of you make a point of looking for or avoiding 180g if you can? Does anyone own the same record in both 180g and standard Does 180g cause more correction to have to be made within the phono stage? Also, does a bigger piece of vinyl cause more problems with un wanted vibration within the mechanics of the deck? I have to say that the more vinyl I get hold of the more I’m enjoying the whole ‘ownership’ of it. The art work and lyric sheets etc are usually very special and make you feel that you’ve purchased more than just the music. Dave @ Fanthorpes.
