- I have no idea what happened to Precision lately, but their pressings start to consistently sound bad (but were great back then). Constant clicks and crackles with each and every record I buy, not so with their parent company GZ. Either they ditched QA or their compound imports to Canada have quality issues. Or both. What a shame.
- Vor 10 Monaten bearbeitetPrecision has issues pressing problem free records. While not as bad as MRP, they use subpar quality vinyl. One can hear low level surface noise throughout their pressings. Right there, they are ripping the customer off. Other issues include non fill, surface noise that affects the first the first tracks on each side for 10 seconds or so, dimples, and hairline marks. The sad part is that they press records by the Beatles and Stones and can’t get them right. Precision have also pressed titles by Marvin Gaye and Little Feat within the last year and managed to screw them up. Precision’s questionable QC comes as no surprise, since they’re a subsidiary of GZ.
- it seems like a lot of more recent pressings don't have the 10-##### codes, instead they'll simply have GZ codes (catalog number and part number) and a 'made in canada' sticker. this seems especially common for releases where GZ does the EU pressings and seemingly send parts to PRP for north american pressings. maybe this PRP profile should be updated to reflect that, but i'm not sure there's any way to 100% confirm it (but i don't think GZ would press discs then send just the discs over to canada for packaging).
- Vor einem Jahr bearbeitetHave several Precision pressings and while the pressing quality is not bad, like MPO, they always seem to manage one side off center which is annoying to say the least. If they can step up their QC, they'd be a good plant.
- One of my favorite plants out there right now but a couple of records I’ve bought pressed by them lately have been off center (Taylor Swift “Lover” on its third side). Hopefully they can stop that because I love me some PRP!
- This pressing plant, in my experience, is one of the better ones out there today. Some of their early pressings suffered from non-fill but they were very responsive to the situation and have made great improvement since. Their work is way better than their parent company (GZ). Most PRP pressings I’ve purchased in the past year or so have been nice quiet slabs of vinyl.
