Outstanding pressing. Every bit as good as the overpriced Mobile Fidelity pressing; in fact, it’s commonly accepted that this is in fact sourced from the same source as the MF version.

A great sounding pressing at an affordable price!

I just saw this record made the discogs SADDEST records of all time list. What's even sadder about Sea Change is a fews later Jeremy Blake (who did the album artwork) stripped down naked and swam out into the Hudson River only to drowned himself and die. Even sadder, his wife committed suicide a week prior. Damn.

An amazing pressing of one of my favorite Beck albums. Great separation, quiet, and sounds like I’m hearing it for the first time!

My copy sounds incredible...I can pull any other Beck repress off the table and put this on at the same volume and you can immediately notice a significant change in tone and volume.

Ok so I have compared this version pressed at Pallas and the Pink MFSL and I could not hear any difference in quality.
So don't waste the money, I sold my MFSL

If you have a top-shelf system (I’m not talkin’ Bose here) this release sounds phenomenal. One of the best sounding digital releases I’ve ever heard. If you love this album & have a great system, please do yourself a favor and get this.

This pressing sounds dull and lifeless, as if it was cut from a CD. The SACD/DSD download as well as the 192/24 download both sound better. However, the 192/24 download comes in the form of a code with this LP, so it's probably cheaper to buy the LP and then redeem the code. At least you get full sized physical album art too.

Anyone has compared the MoFi Pink version with the earlier MoFi Black one? I was wondering why a more recent and coloured version would be pretty more expensive than the previous version... Did they press less of the pink one? Any other explanation? Thanks...

How does this 2CH compare to the Blu-Ray audio disc, or the MoFi CD?
