With the emergence of the Audiophile LP and the increasing availability of Japanese imports consumers became aware of alternative inners that cossetted rather than buffetted the vinyl within. The former category of discs (when of U.S origin) usually come in luxurious rice paper liners with stiffening layers; U.K consumers soon found out that they were available in packs of ten at a cost thats now shoot through the roof. But these same consumers also noted that the round bottomed luxury liners as used by the Japanese were also available seperatly and they matched the wondrous American sleeves in all but two areas. They share the same static fighting properties and they dont - if kept clean inside - scratch discs but they lack the easy-to-handle stiffness and the higher price.

Why are these better than conventional poly-lined inners? That was the question I asked when talking to a jazz collector friend who swears by them. Now, having tried some for myself, I know why. They create significantly less static than all of the poly-lined inners I have tried and records therefore stay cleaner for longer. But there is another advantage. You can use them inside a new or existing paper sleeve. This - rather than using them on their own - is by far the best way to use them.
These inner liners provide the essential first line of contact with your precious vinyl. Flexible in use, you can pair them with the original corporate inner sleeve, or a fresh paper sleeve if that's your inclination. Bye bye to paper scuffs, foreign objects lurking within old sleeves, and " vinyl-sweating" old pvc-lined inners. Essential protection for your 12" LPs
Been buying these for a few years now and cannot fault them. Snug fit and do the same job as the Nagaoka 102s. Top product
These sleeves seem really good. I put a weight on
the crease, where folded for posting, and they are
crease free now. Fitted well within plain paper inner. They seem more of a softer construction than the Nagaoka. Can only make 5 stars after some usage and time.
I have bought these poly inner sleeves from British audio online several times. I think they are based on the Nagoka inner sleeve. I find them essential for cleaned records. If you have any records with card inner sleeves with art work, these bags fit very neatly in to protect your precious vinyl.I think they pay for themselves in the longevity they give to any record, providing you have cleaned it first with a wet vacuum like the moth 2.
I ordered these sleeves because I think they are good quality and good value.
I always buy these shaped inner sleeves and they are supreme quility I have used some named brand ones before but after much testing these are
Much the same and cheaper.
If you are a fussy vinyl collecter then these are perfect
...if you want an inner sleeve which sits inside the old paper inner sleeve then it works well. A bit fiddly but OK.
If you want a stand-alone inner sleeve you need something more substantial.
Very good sleeves, a lot more economical than big name brands, I always use these now.
British Audio are always good to deal with
