Record Shop & Cafe

Post by rynka » Mon Dec 04, 2017 1:44 pm

Does anyone know about this place? It's a Record Shop that also serves chilled imported beer of various brands.
It also has a Cafe across the Record Shop that serves coffee, cake etc. with local artwork on display.

It is located inside Seen Space, that beachfront mall near the immigration office.

I was just wondering if anyone's ever been there and what the experience was like.

You seem to know quite a bit about the place, have you been inside yourself?

It's on the north side, near the beach, one step down into the café. The records, when I went in were used copies of 60's and 70's pop and rock. The art work wasn't to my taste and I didn't try the beer. That was about 2 months ago.

Sounds like the OP is promoting the place

You might be surprised! Vinyl seems to be making a comeback everywhere. If I could find my old albums that are somewhere here, I might be tempted myself. When I went to Fortune Tower in Bangkok, I was amazed at the number of shops stocking vinyl and a variety of turntables were widely available.

I grew up listening to vinyl records with all there clicks, pops, scratches and, despite publicity, low fidelity. If you don't have a high fidelity system and I'm not talking about stereo but a high end system, you won't hear but a small percentage of the music that's recorded. The first time I heard a cd of music that I was very familiar with I heard notes and frequencies that I'd never heard before. Your 30 yr. old vinyl recordings will sound like crap compared to a 30 yr. old cd. A friend used to buy records, play them once while he recorded them to reel-to-reel tape and only listened to the tape after that. Extreme but the only way to preserve vinyl while still being able to listen to the music.

Well my hearing isn't good enough to challenge you on that, but that are an awful lot of folk out there who would! Not on the technical data, but simply on what provides the more authentic or better sound.

Better is a relative term. The only "authentic" sound is live music, everything else is a poor reproduction. That takes nothing away from the enjoyment of listening to a recording but a pair of 12" speakers cannot reproduce a symphony orchestra. I've spent many hours listening to music, late at night, on a 1950's car radio and was thrilled to be able to hear it but I never thought that it was what live music sounded like. Vinyl provides a "warmer" (whatever audiophiles mean by that) sound but cd's give you more of the music. As I said in my previous post, when I heard cd's of the music that I'd listened to on vinyl I heard notes that I hadn't heard on vinyl. That,for me, is better than warm fuzzies.
