    Hi all,
    Ive been digital forever and upgraded to DVS a while back. I love turntables and the vinyl feel and pick up tunes on wax whenever I get the chance. Which is less and less these days.

    Does anyone know where I can find some shops (preferrably in the midlands) with a decent selection of liquid and minimal dnb on wax?

    Fuck discogs, im not paying those ridiculous prices, I'd rather drive to london to sister rays.

    Thanks for the heads up guys. I'll take notes and find the time to visit these places.

    Yeah, im not blown away with htfr. Do they even have any dnb vinyl on the shop floor? Last time I went in there it was all gear and a few dance CD's.

    The Music and Video Exchange shop in Brum does new and used vinyl. Not many bargains for second hand stuff but the new vinyl they sell there is as cheap as the online shops..
