Testimonials

Had a really good experience with Academy and their purchase of my sister’s large vinyl Lp collection. They were certainly knowledgeable and made a good offer. They were courteous and professional, picked up all vinyl quickly and paid on the spot that same day. Excellent experience overall!
— Steve Loehrer
Best record store in NYC. Reasonably priced records... they also give you the best deal than anyone else in the area on selling or trading your vinyl in.
— David A
After much deliberation over how to sell my collection, I decided to have Academy come to my place to look at my records. They bought all of them, and they offered me more than I thought I’d get for it on Ebay! I didn’t have to go through the trouble of listing and shipping them, like I had done with my books, which was a long and arduous task. Wish they bought books too!
