Nice Library of Records – On a recent trip to Nashville that included a stop to several record stores, I was glad I stopped at Phonoluxe. It was nice to see some of the old records again that I've made friends with in this store over the years! Seriously there are also some recent arrivals here, and an occasional bargain too (although they have more dollar records than any store in town, I don't remember ever buying one of them). Their vinyl room is well organized, easy to navigate, and along with the high priced records there are many that are reasonably priced as well. This store is neat and it is obvious that they spend quality time straightening up their stock, but it would be nice if they sometimes lowered a price or two here and there.
A Real Record Store – I don't see any reason to complain about these guys. I have been shopping there for almost 20 years. They have a great selection and I have found some rare gems there. The employees leave you be and are courteous if you ask for something. If they were all over you like a chain store that would be something to complain about also. They pay good money for used CD's and the staff has been around the block a time or two and know the music business well.The owner is an English dude or was and is extremely cool. I have never had a problem there. They are straight up and to the point about what you bring in and care about the condition of what you purchase. In spite of newfound competition they hold their own and have been there for years not by doing business poorly. If you don't like the selection there or don't think this is the real deal for music fans go to WalMart and pickup the Top Gun Soundtrack. This place is worth a visit for any "true" music fan".
Decent Selection, awful employees – First of all, upon entering Phonoluxe, be aware of the 3 or so employees who will stare at you throughout your visit. Maybe they think you are going to steal something, maybe they are just creepy. If you ask them for help, they will generally sigh and begrudgingly tell you what you need to know. It is probably better if you do not interact with the employees, as they are generally angry at life and do not want to be bothered by people. I guess that's why they work in retail, right? The selection is fairly decent. Very good DVD selection.Lots of vinyl. The prices are anywhere from average to way too expensive. If you do visit phonoluxe, try and park adjacent to the building on Nolensville Road. Pulling out of their parking lot behind the building is nerve racking.
Phonolux Never will sell for less. 2005 – Phonolux records idea is somebody will buy the record, it just maybe twenty years from now. The $500 Tori Amos record will be there when you vist. Country fans can find rare promo releases. Bootlegs can be found. Rare records and compact disc. Most records are $5-7, CD's $9-14. This store has to much junk $1 records that will never sell, many without sleeves. But this junk will be there for the next twenty years. NO SALES or bargin days at Phonolux, every. Customer service is bad, you feel like you are intruding on the workers. Good music to be found just not a feel good record store. 2005
The best cheap bin ever! – It's worth visiting Phonoluxe for many reasons, among them their remarkable selection of deeply discounted CDs. This is a really good store, although you are warned that you're taking your life in your hands when you try turning out of this visibility-free lot onto Nolensville.
Customer Service at an all time low... – To say that customer service/general friendliness isn't on the high priority list of Phonoluxe employees would be a major understatement. I know more than a few people who refuse to go in the store anymore because of the absolute rudeness of the staff. Sure, the selection's great, but the prices are a little steep...and (just to bring it up again to make a point) the majority of the employees are of the "my record collection's better than yours" variety. Also, be on the lookout for bootlegged CDR's with an "IMPORT" sticker and a $35 price tag. The RIAA could have a field day with this place.
