TVD Recommends:
Two Turntables and the Right to Vote hosted by SoundStageDirect & VPI at SSD HQ, 3/22

…and we’ll have the exclusive outcome of the turntable tussle for you next week, right here at TVD. First, your main event:

SoundStageDirect is partnering with VPI Industries to celebrate with a special event on Saturday, March 22 from 12 to 4 p.m. at 212 Decatur Street in Doylestown, PA where customers can toast the growth of vinyl and help pick the next VPI turntable.

“I’ve been obsessed with records since I was 10-years-old, from the music itself to how they spin and to even how they smell,” said Seth Frank, owner of SoundStageDirect. “The fact that I’ve been able to build a successful business by simply following my passion is still unreal to me. I am still pinching myself.”

At age 10, Frank got his first vinyl gig at the Princeton Record Exchange in Princeton, NJ., where he gained valuable insight into the industry. After college he took a traditional corporate job, but quickly realized he had to follow his passion and founded SoundStageDirect.com.

After years tirelessly selling vinyl records online from his newborn daughter’s bedroom via eBay, Seth perfected the art of packaging vinyl LPs. As orders increased, SoundStageDirect grew from a one-man operation to a website powered by Seth and a handful of part-time employees working out of his garage.

In 2006 they moved into an office building, and presently with 14 full-time employees on staff, they are riding the wave of success felt by the entire vinyl industry. According to “Digital Trends,” vinyl record album sales in the United States jumped 17.7 percent to almost 4.55 million units.

RSVP to [email protected] to join SSD, VPI, and TVD tomorrow (3/22) from 12-4 at SSD HQ for drinks and food, some vinyl chatter—and to add your voice and choice for the next turntable to be crafted by the artists at VPI. (If you miss the event, we’ll have the skinny on the turntable raising its tonearm in victory next week!)
