2021 UK  just arrived.  Replaces one I sold before I got my new preamp.  Seller's remorse.

Well, it doesn't fade out before the sax solo in Soul Love like my 8-track used to. So far, so good. Punchy bass drum, well defined highs, good separation.

Helps that the Better Half™ is out for the evening, so I can really turn it up.

Freaking out in a moonage daydream, oh yeah.

It's kinda dodgy. I've got a 1st and a 1980's copy that are not in the nicest shape. I can fix em, but it's a lotta work, so on to the easier things. Oh and the shiftiest pressing operation out there is GZ Media out of the Czech Republic. Universal Music Group uses them a lot and they cut corners and bad quality control.
Mine is this one.

Oh, and I still have Nektar sitting.  I have not forgotten.  A boatload may just show up at your house one day, you never know.  So much vinyl, so little time.

I hit the jackpot one day at my local used place. Someone must have sold them their collection and I snagged 4 Nektar LP's, including Remember the Future. If you have any old Klaatu keep me in mind!

This was Acoustic Sounds.
 
Acoustic Sounds is the first or second place I always go to when something new comes out, and especially if it is one of their own pressings.  They are very easy to deal with.  So much dirty, noisy crap out there.  Have to return about 50 % of what I get.  Reason I usually by 2 copies of multi albums or box sets with the hope of getting one good copy from 2.

popmarket.com is another place I go to for new vinyl.  Currently more is coming in than going out.  Have to concentrate and find the good stuff to get ready to go out.

Doing this album right now.  Have 2 copies actually, a 1st and a repress.   Basically still a vinyl only album.

https://www.discogs.com/release/59734-David-Bowie-Low

https://www.discogs.com/release/9947126-Talking-Heads-More-Songs-About-Buildings-And-Food

Both in great shape.

I would be more than willing to work with prices should you be interested in anything I have you might want.  This is what I am doing, ripping and selling off my entire collection as I go through it.  Be nice for someone I know to end up with them for a fair price rather than selling them off on discogs.  That and I can send you a preview of what it actually sounds like before hand.

Let me know if I can help you fill some of your needs.  This is a small fraction of what I have.  You can also take a look at some of my publicly listed collection from that link, too.  https://www.discogs.com/seller/kurts.ear.candy/profile

I am buying some things that I previously owned and sold because I want to hear them played through with my latest preamp upgrade.  It is that profound.  Example Garbage's first album that I just pulled the trigger on this morning. Sold it a couple of years ago and at a loss. I am actually buying Floyd albums, too, even though I said I wouldn't.  Preordered the Animals remix due in October. 

I have Cd's of most of the vinyl albums I own but no longer listen to them even though they have been ripped and are available with a mouse click.  That missing 400 gigs of music I mentioned a week a or so ago was in fact half of my ripped Cd's.  Only lost one album in the mess so I'm happy about that.
