We were recently in Salina, Kansas visiting Quality Record Pressings (QRP), the best pressing plant in the country where many of our records are pressed. See what goes behind your favorite records on your shelf to set them apart from the rest.
The proof is in the process. And the way it sounds. (Listen for it and you will notice.)
Our trust in the quality that QRP provides comes from knowing that each person involved in every step has an insatiable devotion to making every record the best it can possibly be.
The expertise that they put into even the smallest detail means the kind of unmatched quality you can hear — and feel — the moment you drop the needle.
"My main goal is to make the best record ever made. I'll never get to that point, because when I reach it, well, there's always going to be something a little bit better. So I pride myself in how far we've gotten as a group. That's amazing... but there's always a little bit better,” says Gary Salstrom, QRP engineer.
And you don't have to be an audiophile to notice the difference. Quality is something everyone can feel. Listen for yourself.
Anyone who loves vinyl knows that it's nothing short of magic. QRP's commitment ensures that the magic of your collection is made to withstand the test of time.
"I think for me, it's having an actual piece of music to hold instead of just listening to something through a device. You actually have a physical copy of something that if you take care of it, will last a really long time," says Mary Ann, Vinyl Me, Please Rep at QRP.
