So I stopped by Academy Records in Brooklyn yesterday only to find an interesting deterrent against manipulating their equipment. As you can see in the photo I took it appears they don't want people to adjust the pitch or eq while listening to records. I always end up pitching records down when I hear them and it looks like they can't handle that. I know they carry a bunch of 12"s but they may as well drop in some shitty turntables without pitch if it has become that bothersome. I can live without the eq-ing and hey it does look quite nice on the eyes. Good job people!
