Echt Optimal – Vinyl and books

80% vinyl records, 10% CDs and 10% books—this is the melange of this famous shop. I know the address is very well known for vinyl and it has a long history of bringing good music to the people. They have turntables to check all the vinyl by yourself, if you want. But I’m not at all into vinyl; I go there for the books. I know this is not the best shop for books, but there is always nice music playing, the book selection is small but nicely specific and often surprising. I take more time than usual because quite often I stop looking at the book titles and just watch the vinyl guys. How interested they listen, how interested they are in vinyl and I guess how professional they are, too, from what I can see from the well-educated way they treat the vinyl on the turn tables.

From all the vinyl shops in Munich, I think this is the best in terms of good mood and good neighbourhood, also if you are not a vinyl-nerd. Echt optimal – really perfect.
