    Last one I got/bought was McCartney's "Kisses On The Bottom". But that was back in what, 2012? Lol!

    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\
    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    Our local Target has a pretty respectable selection of vinyl. The wife drug me in there one day for something and course I wandered to the electronics section. She found me about 1/2 hour later thumbing through LP's.

    I told her vinyl will OFFICIALLY be mainstream again when you see it in Wal*Mart.

    The Carpenters nailed it every time...
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    I bought a number of records from Target. most of them were actually good quality, my copy of DSOTM is great. Kinda hit or miss though, I have a few warped Beatles records from Target, Walmart and Barnes and Noble.
    I don't buy vinyl from them anymore. I like buying used, as I don't want to roll the dice on getting a $25-30 warped record.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Return them. I bought a DSOTM from Target that had so much surface noise it was basically unlistenable. They took it back, begrudgingly.

    It is too late, that was a couple months ago. If I buy more vinyl there in the future, and it is no good, I certainly will. None of them are bad enough that they won't play or are unlistenable. Just enough to be noticeable.

    I have a big collection of "Lifescapes" CD's from Target. All are DDD and very well engineered. Latin, Jazz, Cajun, Piano, Sax, etc., etc.
