How to find the correct CD-version with catalogue number containing '472224 2':

Versions manufactured by DADC Austria, most of them were released before April 1994.
The next both versions are believed to be the initial releases from 1992:
- Version without DADC logo and silver disc, BIEM/STEMRA, CB 791 and no SID-codes. Inner ring without etching.
- Version without DADC logo and blue striped disc, BIEM/STEMRA, CB 791 and no SID-codes. Inner ring without etching.

The next three versions are considered to be early repress versions from 1993 and early 1994:
- Version with DADC logo with empty inner ring, CB 791, BIEM and no SID-codes.
- Version with DADC logo with mould star, CB 791, BIEM and no SID-codes.
- Version with DADC logo, CB 811, BIEM, empty inner ring and no SID-codes.

Rage Against The Machine - Rage Against The Machine no problems whatever with the sound quality on this album. Wasn't expecting much so was quite surprised by the quality of thecsound on this pressing.

The sound is okay, but this is the remastered version done by Vlado Meller, try to avoid it as this remaster is notoriously panned by critics and fans...

I've read some criticism concerning Steve Hoffman's works, and though i've never been a fan of the latter, this reissue absolutely overthrows every early version of the album.
While lacking some (LITTLE) dynamic range compared to the original pressings, this remaster gives a much more accentuated instrument separation: in fact, you can crank up the volume of your system without fatiguing your ears and still enjoy one of the best albums of this genre.
Note: since i don't have a SACD player, i can only talk about the redbook layer.

My first SaCD. Wow, I blown away, this mastering brings even more appreciation to this album, that I have owned for over 20 years on CD, and a recent vinyl release. The detail in the instrumentation is outstanding.

Just bought this sealed, so it is brand new. However on playing it I found it to be VERY skippy and poppy. Is this just a common problem with this picture disk? Or did I get a dud? Any input would be great.

Audiophiles rejoice, this is getting an SACD release mastered by Steve Hoffman to DSD directly from the original 1/2" 30ips analogue tape, releasing as a Hybrid SACD through Audio Fidelity.

MSRP will be US$29.99; we're finally get a digital version with little to no dynamic range compression (the original CD is very good but does have noticeable limiting) and those without SACD-playback capability can use the CD layer.
