      Like the US version, this pressing is also 180 gram.

        I have an Italian pressing, on the post 78, red and green virgin label, same matrix/runout.

          sounds really nice. only complaint is they 'fixed' the cymbal crash on "Jennifer". maybe it was unintentional but I always appreciated it as a strange moment on a strange album

            Mind-boggling experience going into the then-new Virgin Megastore in Oxford St around 1979 and seeing a rack with about 50 sealed copies of this for £1.99 each. Most record shops in those days only had one copy of each album out in the racks. All the others were behind the counter. The Virgin store was the first record I went into with 'live' stock. Dozens of the same title all racked out. Mind-blowing sight for me in those days. The first time I went in I'd taken a load of magic mushrooms which heightened the experience somewhat. I'll never forget the Can section with 50 Monster Movies, 50 Tago Magos, 50 Ege Bamyasis etc. Freaky.

              How does this version sounds compared with the one from the recent boxset? Any comparisons?

                Yes, as mentioned by other people, this pressing is noise-free and quiet.

                However the sound is also thin and extremely muted (as in you have to raise the volume significantly to listen to it), lacking body, verve and dynamics. (As tangerinegripz mentioned in his review below)

                  This pressing is astoundingly good. It sounds analog to my ears but was apparently mastered digitally. If someone here has been able to compare this to an original, would love to hear about it.

                    I bought this in 2010, I throw it on every few months , it sounds great! I only have the cd to compare it to so unless u have an original... this is it, i dont see too many reissues of this for it being such a great record

                      This pressing is really good! Quiet dynamic and full. I would definitely recommend it.

                        So I have both this press and the 92 CD, and here are my thoughts. I like this press better. It's not as "hot" (see "Loudness War") as the CD. To me, that makes sense; this album should be on the quiet side. Even though "IV" is probably Faust's most accessible album, I wouldn't call it a Rock record that you crank up. To my ears, the EQ is flatter in this press than the CD. The CD lacks the midrange pretty obviously. To me, this EQ levels are the difference maker. A CD shouldn't have noise issues, so there's really no comparison there. But as Ted Mills points out below, this is a fairly noiseless pressing. I rip a lot of my records in Audacity, and most have a lot of low end (< 30 Hz) noise. This press has some, but it's pretty low amplitude. After applying a high-pass (30 Hz cuttoff at 48 dB rolloff) filter to the audio, there is little-to-no high frequency noise. So yeah, I nice, balanced, virtually noise-free pressing.
