Is the main complaint about the vinyl only that it's too quiet so you can't take it to clubs and that?
Regardless of how quiet it may be, is the sound quality decent; like if you turned it up a fair bit, could you still have a good listening experience?

weak audio on vinyl. you'll have to push the gain 25% upwards when playing live, which sucks. anyway, a must have for those who like house music the way house is house. if you want to play this in a club you'll have to practice before, it's too weakly recorded. shame but...

For someone who was lucky enough to purchase Prescription the first time round can we have the Ron Trent Feat. Harry Dennis - Black Magic Woman on a seperate 1'' please? Can't justify owning all those records again for just one 12''.

I know this is Discogs, but can anyone speak to the quality of the digital version of this release? I bought the box and as most are saying, it is not for use by working DJ's. Is the digital?

Collector's item, not for working DJs. Pressing is way too quiet, I would not play this on a loud system unless the booth is absolutely pristine conditions.

The entire presentation here is beautiful. Given that it's twenty-four 12" singles across six LPs, you're going to lose some of the oomph you'd get from individual singles (we should all know that). But the tracks themselves sound fantastic and clear. I was a bit concerned when the first LP was slightly warped, but that wasn't the case with any of the others. They could be thicker pressings, but that would add significant weight to the boxset. The sleeves are individually coloured which helps sort out what's what. And the liner sheet chronicles the details of each single with the original label featured. The housing of the set is sturdy board with golden embossed lettering. This anthology was worth every penny.

Can someone confirm that the pressing of the 6 lps is ok? hanks!

It is super compilation... Carton box looks good on shelf, but the sound is what i am lookin for. No magic here as it is with most of the re-presses nowadays. Repress? Think twice.

if someone is willing to sell me only A/B vinyl hit me up

To be quite honest, this compilation gets pretty boring towards the end. They would have been much better to compile 8/10 of the best cuts and press it up on a double LP, or even just as some 12"s which RH have done with projects in the past. It just seems needlessly bloated at the size it is - wasn't the whole point of something like this to make what have been expensive records for a long time, more accessible and obtainable without having it costing an arm and a leg? While the packaging is super nice it appears that perhaps some corners have been cut with the actual audio, whether it's the super quiet vinyl pressings or digital files which sound heavily compressed.
