    10" are pretty rare. I have no preference really. Its whats on it that counts

    most are on 12" reason being is bass need nice wide grooves

    Doesn't really matter to me. 10" are sweet tho, nice to have something rare in the collection.

    Ladies always tell me size doesn't matter, it's how you use it.

    I hate ten inch presses. They're quieter and harder to mix and I hardly ever touch mine. I actually think it's an evil format just there so that producers/labels can squeeze the extra pennies out of a sale...

    I like em. Pretty cool for a change. Volume is fine on all mine. It's a little cheaper to press but not much, I think they're cool for limited runs

    I prefer 12"s, but 10"s are fine. A friend of mine said 10" sound quieter, but I don't think so. 10" sound fine in the mix

    never really noticed em being more quite, fortress VIP maybe a little bit, but can be easily sorted with the gains

    I don't think there's much difference between 10" and 12" sound quality. Look at the average 12" and you'll find about a couple of inches of unused space on the run-out groove.

    however im not overly fussed...have a few 10" bits and mixing them isn't too difficult, just need to get your gains right etc etc.

    10"s are cool, but, trying to draw for one when digging through a crate is a bit annoying.

    12" all the way :) Moneys worth, plus there is no annoying gap between the vinyl and edge of the platter!
