Have a few of the white units and they've all stood the test of time, free-standing. Beautiful things but heard a whistle they were stopping them last year. Something i need to go and check. They're about as good as it gets, until those creative box set designers get involved !

Ace thread.

As for cleaning....I use a liquid cleaner that I get from eBay with a micro-fibre cloth, that's it. I've used cleaning machines before but the fluid I found does the job. I've got through gallons of the stuff...

I recommended it to Darran the other day so he can either corroborate or destroy my report!

EDIT -It's called "Into The Groove"
I've found they don't really reduce the amount of noise, just take away some of the grime.

I've not used that one though, so will order some and check it out.

They just changed the name from Expedit to Kallax.
The sides, top and bottom have been slimmed down slightly so the units are slightly smaller but the compartments remain the same size. The load rating remains the same though. I have 2off 2x4's and they're just as good as the old style.

Been listening to some Perturbator again.

Here is a link to a fan made video that was liked so much it became the official video for the tune itself.

Love the art on those!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

They were redone for the first time release on a physical format. Along with also being remastered to sound better than the compressed versions to be found online. The third album dangerous days is even better.

Will post a picture tomorrow once I dig it out. I have a picture disc version also to arrive in the post soon of dangerous days which looks sweet.

I thought with this being primarily a gaming forum you collectors might be interested in this:

Sounds pretty sweet! The same company has also done a Streets of Rage one and a Shinobi III vinyl is in the works.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

We were sent both. They sound pretty decent. I'd have preferred Shenmue to be a double LP though as it's missing music.

So, I took the plunge after seeing too much cheap vinyl in local charity shops - got some great bits - Ziggy Stardust, 2001 Soundtrack, Joe Jackson and - ahem - the Kids from Fame Album (only a quid each).

Just picked-up The Stone Roses eponymous first album, the 2014 remastered repress....

Sounds bloody lovely! Much better mastering than the original funnily enough.
