THE 2018 GREENVILLE RECORD FAIR is ON, at the Sears Recreation Center in McPherson Park THIS SATURDAY, SEPT. 22nd, from 10am-4pm!

It’s ON:
HORIZON RECORDS presents the 2018 Record Fair on SATURDAY, SEPT. 22nd from 10am-4pm at The Sears Recreation Center at McPherson Park (100 E. Park Ave.) YES INDEED at last, after much delay, many worried inquiries and wild rumors, we are pleased to confirm that the Greenville Record Fair 2018 is on and returning to the same lovely venue we have enjoyed for last three years. phew.

A music collectors festival:
Over 40 tables of RECORDS, VINYL action and 45’s, CDs. 12″, memorabilia — HOLY COW it’s a music collector’s festival. From the bargain basement steals to hard to find deals the sonic fun is wall to wall. It’s a veritable rainbow coalition of genres: truly different strokes for different folks: hardcore Jazz, hip-hop, RnB and funk crate diggers and sellers, rock of every stripe, rockabilly to psyche to iconic to modern, country, folk, pickin’, reggae, world music. LP’s, 45rpm  7”s, even 78’s. There’ll be film score freaks, blues hounds, world music all laid out all over the place. It’s a beautiful thing to behold.

Meanwhile,  our traditional Fall Record Fair ALL-DAY-STOREWIDE SALE WILL BE IN PROGRESS AT HORIZON! We’ll have more details on that as we get closer to the 22nd, but there will be some sweet discounts, deals and surprises, fo’ sho’.

An ADVENTURE for your ears…
In the usual tradition at the Record Fair; Tavo will be our DJ, spinning groovy favorites and scintillating rarities for your browsing and sonic pleasure.

and your taste buds!
O-Cha Tea Bar will again be there to sling you tasty snacks and beverages: stuffed croissant sandwiches,  chips and pasta salad, tons of cookies and muffins+coffee, and an assortment of hot teas, and iced teas.

A gathering of the tribes:
One thing that’s really great and fun about record shows (and ours of course) is the tribal gathering vibe that is part and parcel of 40 dealers converging from all over the East Coast and followed by a flood of music collectors and record nerds. Lots of these folks only see each other at these shows and everyone reconnects and new friendships happen; the common bond is collecting music. Among certain of these there’s a depth and range of knowledge that is amazing just walking around in the room all day.

Meanwhile, back at the store….
returns to HORIZON RECORDS on Saturday at 2pm for a rockin’ full-band in-store show smack in the middle of RECORD FAIR WEEKEND!

A tradition that goes back to Michelle’s first in-store here in 1989 gets a 2018 update, and we get a treat! She’s still rockin’, shreddin’ on guitar, singing and writing great tunes. Join us as our Record Fair/Storewide Sale day gets even better at 2pm!

So please do mark yer calendars and plan to hit the Greenville Record Fair at The Sears Rec Center from 10AM til 4PM, then visit us here while you’re on this block. Just say yes.

That’s really it, except a quick very important reminder, we don’t stop and we don’t play around.

Much GRATITUDE, y’all!

  • Fisher REC 727 AV Receiver
    This Fisher A/V receiver has phono input, remote and 200 watts! Fire it up bro!
  • Marantz TT1060 semi-automatic turntable
    Here’s a nice entry level table that will severely outperform any newer table even close to it’s price point. The Marantz TT1060 is a semi-automatic table which means the tonearm will return to rest at the end of play.
  • Technics TT SL 1800 turntable
    Technics SL-1800 full manual direct drive turntable, circa 1977. This table is a heavy beast with a very strong motor. A new stylus has been installed on the Stanton cartridge and sounds fantastic. All tonearm features have been set correctly and the stylus tracks at a recommended 3 grams
  • Realistic Lab 430 Direct Drive Turntable
    Very nice inexpensive table with the benefit of direct drive (no belts to change) and auto return. The table has been thoroughly gone through and all features work as they should. A new elliptical stylus has been mounted on the Shure cartridge and balanced correctly.
  • Sonamp 260 from SONANCE
    Soooo nice! This super nice, modestly priced 100 watt per channel power amp has been all checked out and works great. It’s cost effective way to run lots of power!
  • Technics SL-210 full manual turntable
    The table has been thoroughly inspected and gone through with all features working correctly. This is a full manual table, simply turn the table on and move the stylus to the record surface, no auto features to adjust or be concerned with. The new stylus sounds great, is readily available and super affordable. A nice survivor from 1978!
    A new stylus has been installed on the vintage AT cartridge and all features of the table work perfectly!
  • BOZAK CS4000 mod speakers, omg!! these big-boys ROCK!
    8 tweeters, 1 midrange and 2 woofers per. all original, very clean. extremely rare and VERY AMAZING sound!
  • EPI A110 SPEAKERS: 2-way, classic bookshelf charmers! Sound great, woofers rebuilt like new!
    2-way, classic bookshelf charmers! Sound great, woofers rebuilt like new. Circa 1980’s Epicure Productions vintage feature 8”woofers. Critically acclaimed in their day and still sound good, audiophile delivery without the high dollar price. Full-on ready, great sound, woofers rebuilt like new!
    So fresh and so clean! This deck is in great shape and sounds like a champ. Bust out those old bootlegs and mixed tapes.
    Unit is in really nice physical condition. Recently gone through, tested and checked, all functions have been tested and work great! ready to rock with a pre-amp!
  • ADVENT LAUREATE Mini Tower Speakers
    amazing sound, brilliant natural refined listening experience. woofers on both speakers just completely rebuilt better than new! The Advents, both large and small, sounded pretty good and gave excellent value for the money. The company was one of a long string of companies that descended from the original Acoustic Research (AR). Advents eventually lost their enormous popularity and nearly faded away. International Jensen, a company based in the Chicago suburbs, rescued Advent and resurrected it. The Advent model we tested deserves a Ph.D. Advent appropriately names it the Laureate. The Laureate overwhelmed my skepticism that a modestly priced floor-standing loudspeaker could deliver good sound
    Excellent working and sounding Sansui SR-525 full manual direct drive turntable. A new stylus has been installed, and the cartridge has been properly aligned in the headshell according to Sansui specifications. This is a very heavy table with great Sansui build quality.
    A classic “hoss” circa 1983/84. 100 watts per channel! Has phono input.
  • Marantz REC SR 225
    This super vintage budget receiver is the perfect starter unit for someone wanting to explore the world of hi fidelity sounds. It’s been all checked out and has a clean bill of health; and with phono input so it’s good to go with any classic turntable.
  • Sansui SPEAKERS SP 2000
    These Sansui SP-2000 speakers from the 70s are some awesome vintage rockers! These big boys have a four way/six driver configuration plus a bass port. They have been tested and sound great.
    The essentially crossoverless design gives the 901 an unmistakable coherence, the model’s greatest strength. Its incredibly wide dispersion comes in a close second. The Bose 901s sound great anywhere in the room, After extensive listening, the Bose 901s strike me as being damn good. They have some limitations, but don’t all $1,400 speakers? For that matter, what $10,000 speakers are perfect? They are so smooth and musical.
  • Polk Audio T15 Bookshelf Speakers, 2 way plus bass port
    You can enlarge your sound while shrinking the speakers with a reliable bookshelf system. The Polk Audio T15 speakers can blend into the background while delivering impressive tone quality. It can be a superior system that offers balanced drivers and tweeters for a wide response with low distortion.
