$300 (when back in stock) and has strong cred from the audiophile press as the cheapest good way back into vinyl.

The owner/engineer (Manfred Eicher) was a fanatic about the quality of the product. He used only the highest quality vinyl, stampers were tossed out long before they wore out, even the quality of the liner and jacket materials was far above the norm for the time (mid-70's through .. ?). The surfaces were absolutely silent. The American pressings of the time were not nearly as good, and I don't know if you can even get the German pressings here anymore (or even if they release on vinyl). So if you're looking for something to show off how good vinyl can sound, try those.
