    The Needle Doctor

    Just learned, the Needle Doctor has officially permanently closed. Had a few cranky folks call me this morning saying they were still owed product. One guy hasn’t heard back on a pair of Harbeth’s he paid for. Ouch.

    Maybe the cranky people should have bought products from you instead of calling you to bitch about products they attempted to buy from another dealer.

    One guy said “man, I used to get smoking deals from him on Ortofon stuff.” I said “maybe that’s what he’s not in business anymore.”

    Not sure what kind of deal you can give on a $93 stylus.

    Maybe they were selling off inventory or someone is buying the business.
