It wasn't necessary to buy a new copy of "Wish you were here" because my 1975 is still in very good condition, but I wanted to own the Remastered Vinyl Edition completely. The 2016er has a little more bass and seems to be a little louder. But there is no "Loudnesswar". I am very satisfied with this edition. After the wet cleaning with distilled water with the addition of 30% isopropyl and "Mirasol 2000 antistatic" no pops and clicks appear. I can really recommend this edition with a pure heart.

Overall a very clean and quiet pressing. It does have the '70's' sound meaning that it could use a little more brightness, but overall great dynamics and sound.

One of my first bought albums after picking up the vinyls again.
This a very nice example that I am happy to have done that.
Good quality sound, spotless vinyl. I will play this one a lot

Welcome to the Machine is absolutely stunning. Great pressing. Very very few pops at the beginning of side A, no more than 10 seconds in total.

Review from the UK Original vs 2016 Cut: https://www.discogs.com/Pink-Floyd-Wish-You-Were-Here/release/463597
Just listened to my First UK press of WYWH and these are my first impressions.
Besides some crackles which I mostly hope to get off with some cleaning Im quite happy with it for a number of reasons. Coming off of the 2016 issue as my only copy its clear that theres a lot more punch in the sound, that being the biggest difference. The low end bass is fuller and the sound is still so effortless, really wonderful. Wish You Were here just slams it compared to the new issue by Grundman and its really enjoyable.
Whats not as enjoyable are a few details. I can play the Grundman cut louder overall and whats gained from that soundwise is a bit of the soundstage and most of all the effect sounds. One of my favorite parts of the whole album is in Shine on right when the singing starts. It goes "remember when you were young..." and then there is that ominous laugh. That laugh used to send chills down my spine, mostly because of how real and in the room it felt. But its not as effective in the original. I feel similarly about the opening to Welcome to the Machine and Wish You Were here with their sound effects.
This is just on first listen, Ill be going back to the 2016 issue next time and see if it sound underwhelming now or still holds up. Despite it all Im happy to have both the oldest and newest releases and maybe some day Ill find a sound that strikes the middle between the two or change my mind on them completely.

On second inspection I notice a few other things, mainly about the EQ and Soundstaging again. The UK original is somewhat more low end favored which is probably what gives it its smoother and more bass filled sound. The BG is higher end favored and I feel reflects a slightly more realistic reproduction, even with less bass. Its probably what made me feel like the effects were less in the room on the UK as they become slightly less present and real. Now what I mean by soundstaging is the way in which instruments are placed. BGs work on this Pink Floyd series has been a very neutral and balanced approach. As with the EQ, the soundstaging is less deep, but then instead more present, and you hear some instruments buried in the mix of the original more so hear. Is that good however? Sometimes emphasis is more important than making everything heard at all times. Perhaps cymbals become more annoying than effect full after a while. Its very dependent on the listener.
With the progress made here I have to say that I again favor the Reissue over the original and vice versa for certain things. But given the cost and effort required to find a clean original the reissue might just edge it out here.

I’ve had three copies of this on vinyl. The first UK press which was good apart from noise on the right channel throughout the quiet introduction to Part 1. I heard John Peel play this new release on the radio and that had exactly the same fault so the BBC were unlucky too. Some years later I bought another copy in York which turned out to be an Electrola release with a UK sticker over the German barcode. This was/ is a superb pressing cut at a very high level. Then I bought this 2016 release expecting it to be good. My God it was one of the worst Floyd pressings I’ve heard, clicks, pops, rasps. I am amazed it was an Optimal pressing. Just unlucky (again) I suppose.

Bought this copy since my original columbia pressing side b was super worn from wish you were here and till the end of shine on part 7. I put this copy right up there with the original, if not better. Welcome to the machine has a whole sonically mix to it that I love.

Second copy is good - very fine sounding repress with very little surface noise. First one had an annoying crackle at the start of side A but Amazon replaced it.

Great sounding record. Flat pressing, almost no surface noise, even in the quiet moments.
