Academy Records & CDs was just voted the "Best Record Store in NYC "-2015

For this Flatiron district mainstay since 1977, the answer to how to stand out among the NYC record-store pack is to specialize. There are still plenty of indie, classic rock, soul, and jazz records on display here, plus a fair amount of DVDs for the cinephiles who wander in. But the heart of Academy Records & CDs is its heavenly classical-music selection. With much of it situated toward the back of the store, it's a treasure trove of all the Deutsche Grammophon, CBS, and London records anyone could ever want. Bonus: The folks at Academy are very picky about vinyl quality, so you’re guaranteed to find excellent-condition LPs at unbeatable prices for many of these records. - Village Voice

We have picked up the last remaining copies of the John Cage and Kenneth Patchen 'The City Wears A Slouch Hat' CD originally issued on the brilliant, yet sadly defunct, label Cortical Foundation. These are still sealed and out of print. Contact us ASAP to secure a copy as they will not last long.
Music Hall usb-1 turntables
We have restocked the Music Hall usb-1 turntable, and just in time for X-mas! These belt-driven turntables have been hugely popular, as one of the Music Halls greatest selling points is its ability to connect, via USB, to a Mac or PC, allowing you to digitize your vinyl. It comes with an Audio Technica cartridge and caters for both 33 1/3 and 45 rpm speeds.
