  • Established in 1985, for over 34 years eil.com (also known as Esprit) has been the world's largest buyer of premium quality and top condition rare and vintage vinyl records, rare CD's and music memorabilia. And we are proud of it.
  • We can afford to pay you the best prices as we have over 500,000 happy customers in over 100 countries worldwide. And it means your records are going to a great new home to be loved by someone else.

  • You can bring you records to us, we can collect them, or you can send them to us. Our service is always fast, friendly and professional. You don’t need to be the expert as we do all the difficult stuff.
  • Selling to us is easier than selling it yourself – If you have a collection of 30 records, that would be 30 different listings on Ebay, lots of questions to deal with, 20 different parcels to package (as at least 10 won’t sell), dealing with items missing or damaged in the post and possible fraud. So often a daunting and time consuming task, its much better to leave all that to us.
  • So if you want the best deal for your records, CDs or memorabilia, just call or email us today.
