Vinyl Event in Santa Rosa Saturday

Saturday, April 29, from 1–5pm, Lavish Hi-Fi (1044 4th Street, Santa Rosa, CA 95404) is holding a vinyl lover's dream day, featuring The Last Record Store, and Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab.

Mobile Fidelity mastering engineers Shawn and Rob will play their fabulous LPs and discuss the challenges of making ultra-high quality vinyl records. Last Record Store owner and music buff Doug Jayne will talk about his 30+ years of seeing the public's reaction to changing audio formats, and his own feelings about what vinyl does that other mediums do not. And Lavish Hi-Fi's Craig Allison will recount his experiences making a 7" 45 and a perfectionist LP from his own live band recordings, as well as clear up myths and misunderstandings about vinyl. Selections from this record will be cranked up!

Attendees will qualify for a chance to win prizes, including a pair of Music Hall's high-resolution De-Be headphones, Mobile Fidelity limited-edition LPs, GrooveWasher's groovy new record cleaning kits, an Ortofon Test Record, T-shirts, posters, and more! (Drawing will be held at 4pm. Must be present to win.)
