Grading: E: Excellent Condition. Superb, shiny as new, appears unplayed or seldom played. Play is very loud and clear. VG: Very Good. Above average, played, has wear such as scuffs and minor to moderate scratches, but still a decent disk with much shine that plays very well. G: Good, OK. A disk that has been much played, scuffs and scratches both very visible and audible. Good sound but noticeable to prominent surface noise and hiss. F: Fair. Below average, heavy scratches, very grayed grooves, wear, plays but with a lot of noise that distorts quality greatly. P: Poor. A disk you couldn't bear to dispose of because of it's rarity but barely audible if at all. Used only for super rare space filler disks.
I add + (plus) that each bump a disk up slightly and a - (minus) to bump them down. Any other damage or noise will be described. No chips or cracks unless noted. I also describe the actual play quality based upon my Panasonic electric turntable without filters. Your player may impact the sound greatly based upon equipment condition and quality.
