Gorgeous pressing all around. I highly recommend this series of remasters, they are mastered from original tapes, the sound stage is excellent, vocals and instruments sound warm and full, no sibilance. I snagged it for $20 and couldn't be happier.

Just listened to this the other day (again) it is really a beautiful remaster. Hi Res cut or no it still sounds amazing. Every instrument is detailed and you can hear everything in the mix. Unlike the 2011 cd remaster which seems to have removed most of the bass guitar from the mix. Obviously BG made it a point to repair this travesty. Overall this vinyl is a winner. IMO>

I own this one and also a classic relics German Near Mint pressing:

I compared Interstellar Overdrive between these 2 pressings, and this one sounds a little better, I can't beleive, is this digitally sourced? Impossible, sounds amazing in my Project Debut Carbon turntable, with Ortofon 2m Red cart, phono box e Preamp and good ears

Just as good as the other reviews say! No-noise heavy vinyl. Stereo separation is crisp, the entire album sounds lively. Jacket is a "bespoke envelope" which feels very retro and (more importantly) very sturdy.

I'm very happy with this release. I totally regret selling my Stereo 70s pressing from Pathe Marconi which was the best stereo master I ever listened to, but this one replaces that excitement. It sounds awesome.

Love this edition. Being listening to this music for so many years that it´s a pleasure to hear it this way. It's so fresh! How do we know this was press at RTI, it do not have the ineer plastic bag that is common to this place, besides the latter editions were all pressed in Europe (Record Industry) allthought it claims "Made in USA"?

Fantastic pressing. I’ve been listening to this album multiple times a year for over a decade and this remaster is like hearing it anew once again. The dynamics are breathtaking—the depth of sound is incredible. A must-have.

I was excited to get these 180g audiophile repressings of Pink Floyd’s albums directly from Pink Floyd Records. I am planning to get them all. They are not being released all at once. I have The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, A Saucer Full Of Secrets, Ummagumma, & Atom Heart Mother. I have ordered More, Meddle, Obscured By Clouds, The Wall & The Division Bell. The next album to be released is The Dark Side Of The Moon.

The first of these, The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, is a record I am very familiar with. This early Syd Barrett incarnation of Floyd is classic psychedelic rock that I dig very much. This recording is produced and mastered beautifully and is a joy to listen to on vinyl. This is the level of quality that I expected from Pink Floyd Records.

The record was released in a beautiful, single jacket with the original UK cover in 180g vinyl. This pressing had a relatively low signal level (-9 dB) but was whisper quiet with virtually no surface noise. I can’t emphasize enough the incredible quality of this pressing. It had very little or no dynamic range compression (average score of +0.5 as measured by DRC-Meter). My processed version (click & pop removal, background noise removal, tube preamp simulation and limited to -1.5 dB) has an average DRC score of +1.4.

I thou thoroughly enjoyed this vinyl edition and, of course, gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

Records are in imperfect medium to begin with, so the difference may be in something like using a different tape machine for the mastering, it's just been so many years since the original was brought to market- there's bound to be differences. The deadwax did have Bernie Grundman's initials, so I doubt that there will be a better remaster out there for a while unless MFSL gets their hands on the mixdown tapes.

These old Pink Floyd albums are getting rarer and rarer, good copies are hard to find, the people who have them know what they have and they're not going to let go of them easily. I'm just glad to have a nice clean copy- defect free as much as the medium will permit, and I gladly accept that they will be a bit different. This is replacing a battle- worn copy of "A Nice Pair" that was probably tracked too many times with excessive pressure on a Voice-Of-Music record changer.
