gruvyawards_300.jpgThe Gruvy Awards are chosen by AnalogPlanet's editor, Michael Fremer, and go to products that are found to possess a combination of high build quality, exceptional sonics and in the case of less expensive gear, provide great value for the money.

Vinyl records awarded Gruvys are musically and sonically outstanding and also well mastered and pressed. We've sorted them into two categories: New Records, and Reissued Records.

While a Gruvy indicates a product or record deemed exceptional, products that haven't been so awarded should not necessarily be considered unworthy!

I met up at AXPONA with SOTA's Kirk and Donna Bodinet. They were part owners in the company for many years, buying the company outright from Jack Shafton in 1997, when depending upon your perspective, it was vinyl's nadir, or the beginning of its resurgence.
