    The MOFI group on FB is very good for that. There’s a few others too like Anything MOFI or other great albums. Vinyl: the dead wax society is also good.

    in terms of adding LPs to a collection, it would be great to know of online groups like these. what groups do you frequent and find helpful for the identification / discussion of titles and pressings?

    I couldn’t disagree more. The N200 absolutely smokes the N100H and it beats the N10 in our store. We have them all. The N200/N20 has more transparency, resolution and far more musicality. Even the N100H gets pummeled by the N10. If you...
