    One can hope their records are better made than their 'tables...vinyl is a niche market no matter what you read and when its over-crowded with every Tom, Dick and Harry pressing vinyl, IMO corners will be cut.

      I wouldn't exactly say that pressing vinyl is over-crowded. We need more plants to take the stress off existing ones that are running 24/7 and 365. We'll have to wait and see, but if QC is better than United, that's a good thing. It does seem like an odd marriage though.

        the pathos is there its a question of ethos, will they adopt any semblance of quality or respect for the medium like we see from QRP.

        I can't answer that and it'll remain to be seen.

      Not to be a wet blanket because I think some of the ideas are pretty cool. I like the record adoption truck-but isn't there a record dealer in LA that travels around in a bus with his wares?

      What worries me the most from reading this and several other articles on the new generation of record pressing plants is the emphasis on churning out records faster with not a lot of mention about quality. One thing that hurt tube manufacturers for years was the lack of reliability; the same holds true for vinyl for what came off the lines in the late '70s was awful. I hope they learn from history and don't make the same mistake again.

      As far as what Rob said. I think there's always room for quality. Chad is/was turning down business because the major labels weren't placing orders for 2000 albums.

        There are a few of the record trucks around and I think we might see some growth there. It's in interesting new way of bringing product to market.

          There's a girl in Calgary that started one last year, it's called Beatnik. I haven't personally come across it yet, but I'd like to.

            Well, HUGE props to her. I've never even heard of such a thing before. I sincerely hope she is successful just based on the originality.

              The Record Truck has been operating around West L.A. for a while, its a 'food truck' for vinyl buyers. I haven't checked it out, there's something silly about following a truck around to buy records, its not like we have a dearth of great B&M stores.

                There is one advantage to the mobile concept, once the costumers in one location are served, drive on over to the next location. Customers might ask for or recommend alternate locations to find more business. If customers do not come to the mountain, the mountain must go to the customers.

                  I'd also guess it serves as a great resource for stores buying used albums too.
