What the Artist & Labels Say

Corner of Stone and Main: Horizon Records. Go ahead, flip through the album covers. Those vinyl-packed bins smell like memory and nostalgia. Even the new, shrink-wrapped LP’s suggest a time-gone-by begging to be written about. Tiny price tags on the used records say Pre-Loved. (Could be the title of your new novel) Blocked on a story? Go to Horizon, buy an $8 album. Slide it on your turntable. Embrace the scratches. Get magically unblocked. Best people watching in Greenville, there among the vinyl. Hungry? Walk (literally) through the wall to The Bohemian Café. Grab a seat at the bar. Best Cuban sandwich in Greenville. Damn thing is inspired.
SCOTT GOULD, author, “Strangers To Temptation”, speaking about how to cure writer’s block in the Official Visitor’s Guide of Greenville, SC.


Today is Record Store Day, it’s a big day! Mike brought us all some incredibly nice gifts, trying to contribute to the local economy, and we’re going home with some really nice vinyl from Horizon Records. You’re lucky because not all cities have record stores. You’re very lucky and we’re very happy to get this opportunity to give a shout-out to Horizon Records and Gene Berger. 
Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, onstage at the band’s sold-out show at Bon Secours Wellness Arena, 4/16/16


“ I miss horizon more than my mom.  unless you are my mom reading this, in that case i miss you more. if it weren’t for Horizon, I’d be listening to Creed.  where else can you get Eric Dolphy, El-p, Hindemith, Smog, and Doc Watson in the same place?  One of Greenville’s  treasures!     

—  John Byce, Greenville/Spartanburg native, drummer, music connoisseur


“You have a really special place. Good Vibes are heavy here at Horizon”

William Tyler, Nashville singer, songwriter & guitarist, Merge Records recording artist.


“We all need each other. “
Darrell Scott, songwriter extraordinaire, world-class singer/guitarist.


“It’s a pure pleasure to work with Horizon Records – a genuine record store still serving a community with passion and knowledge. If only there were clones in every city. “
Tina Pelikan, ECM Records


“So we’re at FujiRock finishing up soundcheck for our first show a couple nights ago, when I have a nice gentleman come up to me. He had his phone out and in broken English tells me he heard we were from Greenville and he had been there. He had Horizon Records pulled up on his maps app and asked me if I’d ever heard of your store. Always knew you guys were worldwide!”
Matthew Jennings, keyboardist, The Marcus King Band

  • 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 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 […]

  • Technics SL-210 full manual turntable
    The table has been thoroughly inspected and gone through with all features working correctly.

  • 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 […]

    8 tweeters, 1 midrange and 2 woofers per. all original, very clean. extremely rare and VERY AMAZING sound! […]
    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
