Some of the highlights from high up on the spectrum.
So I'm confused. About the inner liner. Should the lyrics pull out toward you? Or should the should it be the side that usually has the picture of the band?
I always put the A side facing front, horizontally aligned label with the proper finished sleeve front showing side A. I know I'm a bit OCD. But I like seeing it that way when removing from jacket. Being OCD has resulted in a wonderfully groomed and preserved collection of NM LPs and jackets.
Don't know about my albums but I always put my cassettes back in the case with Side One facing the back of the case so I can see it when opening the case. Also the tape must be rewound to the beginning of Side One, with no tape slack showing through the little window on the cassette.
Don't even get me started on my reel to reel tapes. That's a whole 'nother world.

My Readers Digest sets are always arranged A side corresponding with the front of jacket, horizontally aligned if there is a viewing hole. If a solid sleeve, well... I still put A to the front but do not enforce the horizontal rule, even though it bothers me. And of course all records are in numerical order, from front to back. Career spanning collections of albums such as the Beatles mono box, MUST be organized with the earliest release in front and proceed backwards from there. I wouldn't dream of reversing Rubber Soul and Revolver for instance.
Does reduced lighting really affect your hearing that much? When I hear the wrong 1st song being played, it's at least a 90% chance that I'm playing the wrong side.

I’m really confused by this thread as I understood all audiophools kept the records outside of the jackets but within protective plastic sleeves to avoid the dreaded ringwear. (A circular mark left on record sleeves when they rub together, not to be confused with a condition Devoe’s Vicki suffers from.)
