    Firstly, I have no blind loyalty to any media format. If it sounds the best, then so be it. I was hoping this release would shine a bit better than it did. To really put these releases to the test, I record my records in 24-bit/192 kHz through a custom hi-res computer I built. It makes it much easier for a full analysis and side-by-side comparison with other releases. In many cases, the vinyl wins, but in this case, it does not sound better than the 2004 SACD release here: The Allman Brothers Band - Eat A Peach. I bought the SACD many moons ago and have only compared the MFSL vinyl to the CD layer. It is immediately clear upon comparison that the stereo mastering by Suha Gur (the first time I've seen the name) is significantly brighter and more detailed than the MFSL vinyl. Sadly, the MFSL sounds a bit muddy and dull. Granted, my analogue chain is far from high-end. The whole setup with AVR/turntable/phono stage/cartridge/speakers/sound isolation is maybe $4k. Perhaps with a better setup the vinyl will shine, but it should also not take a system north of $10k to beat a CD.

    I'm a collector so I'm glad to have this release, but I wouldn't go too far out of my way or price range to pick it up if you're just looking for the best-sounding version.

    EDIT: Looking through my collection, Suha Gur also did some mastering work on the MFSL vinyl release of Idlewild South in 2009.

      I held off on this one for a while before deciding to bite the bullet or cry later. My original Capricorn copy of "Eat a Peach" sounds just like the vast majority of other original pressings from the 70s. It's fine, but there's really nothing much to write home about. Just as I had hoped, this MoFi remaster presents the album in its full glory. The pressing is dynamic, lush, extremely detailed, and has an excellent soundstage. It holds all the characteristics I've come to love from MoFi and their dedication to high quality remasters. "Eat a Peach" and "Brothers and Sisters" have benefited greatly from the Gain 2 Ultra Analog tape deck MoFi has built. If you're a big fan of this album, I don't think any other pressing down the road will top it.

      My Setup:
      Pro-Ject 6 Persepx SB Turntable
      Hana ML Cartridge
      McIntosh MP100 Preamplifier
      Line Magnetic 216ia Power Amplifier
      Klipsch R-820F Speakers

        Listening to this REI first time, I am really amazed how good it sounds. Excellent pressing and packaging. Highly recommended for fans as a must-have album to complement Fillmore East Live edition of MFSL. Mountain Jam part 1 & 2 add up to 34 min of otherworldly live music.

          I agree with the others. I am totally satisfied with this version. Amazing separation and clarity on this pressing.

            Great remaster of one of the classic albums of the 70's. The Allman Brothers Band have never sounded better. Classic tracks like "One Way Out" come alive and you will hear subtle sounds you could not hear in the original CD. The highs are much improved. Sound is also deeper and clearer as the separation of instruments is much more noticeable. A real winner.
