    Outstanding record. It’s very demanding to the equipment and certainly this explains why some reviews mention distortion. Although slightly, I could feel the age of my old oc9 mlII in a couple of high piano notes. After installing a brand new oc9-xml, days ago, this record was the reality-check of the new cartridge, and there’s only one word to describe the result: perfection.
    I must add that both cartridges were professionally setup and the old OC9-mlII it’s still working great with most of my other records in a second system.
    So, I’m not a technical expert but I wanted to share my experience with you. Maybe it can help some of you.

      Yes. This has to be the definitive version of time out. My copy has no noise and every track sounded wonderful. Punchy, quite, and excellent dynamic sound

        This has the slow version of Take 5. If that’s what you’re into. V nice pressing.

          No distortion on my copy, and sounds absolutely fantastic. Most certainly one of the best-sounding records I own.

            I was a bit paranoid after seeing some reviews with distortion here, but still risked it and picked it up from a local record shop when I saw it in stock since this is my favourite Jazz album, and I need a good pressing of it. Luckily, I can report that I did not notice any distortion, or audible imperfections of any kind. It sounds absolutely blissful to me, I've never heard this album with such a wide soundstage and definition. I'm not sure if there are variants of this pressing that have the distortion issue, and if there are any ways to identify them, but my copy is one of the best sounding records I've ever heard.

              All those complaining about distortion in the piano, have you ever heard another press? the distortion is in the recording!
              • hulotings's avatar
                Anyone else have distortion, for example on Kathy's Waltz, particularly on the higher register piano keys? Also crackles, possibly static (surely can't be that this disc needs cleaning, cos I'm literally playing it for the first time!). Shame, cos I thought this was the 'holy grail' of Time Out pressings :/

                  Finally spun this today and was not disappointed. The whole package is up to the typical high standards of AP. I don’t have other pressings of this release to compare, but have found this to be an enjoyable one on its own.

                    Is anyone else getting a bunch of distortion on the highs? Record does sound great, but that distortion sucks.

                      One of the best sounding records in my collection. Everything from the quality of the vinyl, the gatefold jackets and artwork, labels etc is all first rate. It's incredible to think how good an analogue recording from 6 decades ago still is and how well it holds up, even by today's standards.
