LP Vinyl Records usually come with the sizes of 12”, 10”, and 7”. Since the difference between 12” and 10” is very little so New Cyberian only offers 12” and 7”. For 12” we offer two weights; i.e. 150g and 180g. The heavier 189g vinyl provides more robust and stable playing platform and hence, according to some audiophiles, gives better sound quality.
On both 12” and 7” there are options for 33⅓ RPM and 45 RPM; although it is more common for 12” to have 33⅓ RPM and 7” to have 45 RPM.
Different colors style can be chosen for the LP Vinyl Records; for example solid colors, transparent colors, and splatter colors. Since LP Vinyls are non-optical in nature, the colors will not affect the sound quality. They do affect the price slightly.
Packaging for LP Vinyl Records is relatively simple. The most common packaging is a cardboard jacket which can be single pocket or gatefold. If you choose to use cardboard jackets you can also choose to have them shrink wrapped or put in polybags. Polybags can be re-used but shrink wrap, once torn, cannot be re-used.
